Depending on what region your discs are, you can enter a six digit code using the remote control to change the player from Region A to B or C. The player can also playback a plethora of formats: Xvid, MPEG1, MPEG2 , MPEG4(AVI), MP4 HD, WMV9, JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, JPEG2000 and GIF. The player also has internal HD audio decoding, including Dolby TrueHD. The player retails for $349 USD. Full specs: http://www.momitsu.com/bdp_899_spec.html

Cool Re: World's First Region-Free Blu-ray Disc Player from Momitsu

I wonder if this means NTSC and PAL formats as well.

Yes, it supports both NTSC and PAL, as do some other players; but it is the first to be region-free. I can't believe they got this past the BD licensing group. Right now most titles are region-free anyway; but that could change in the future.

The Oppo Digital DVD players have traditionally been Region-Free.....anyone know if the new BDP-83 blu-ray dvd player from Oppo will also be region-free? Gosh, I hope so. I'm anxious for it to be released to market hopefully later this month.

The new Oppo Blu-Ray player will not be region-free. In order to be licensed for Blu-Ray, they had to agree to not allow region-free playing on this unit. Momitsu, on the other hand, is a Chinese company and many of those companies ignore licensing issues.
