Marantz America introduces a new leading-edge high definition video source component – the BD7003 Profile 1 Version 1.1 Blu-ray Disc Player (SRP: $799). Scheduled for availability in November 2008, the new high-value high-performance BD7003 joins Marantz’s high-performance BD8002 Blu-ray Disc Player (SRP: $1,999.99).

BD7003: Leading Edge Blu-ray Features and Performance
With its lower price point, the BD7003 Blu-ray DVD player brings a superior Marantz® Blu-ray video and audio experience within reach of more consumers. Thanks to its HDMI 1.3a with Deep Color and Bonus View support, users enjoy richly detailed images and vibrant color production, with 1080p scaling from SD DVDs for additional viewing enhancement. And the BD7003’s audio capabilities are just as impressive: Once the player’s HD audio bitstream is outputted to a connected receiver in a user’s home entertainment system, the signal can then be decoded to high-performance audio formats including Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio. The result is dynamic sound reproduction for all home entertainment applications, including both music soundtracks and dialogue.

Following the Blu-ray Association’s guidelines for BD-ROM version 1 Profile 1.1 players, the Marantz BD7003 incorporates a secondary audio and video decoder that allows for simultaneous playback of a secondary audio and video track which may be used for interactive audio and commentary and for picture-in-picture capability (respectively). Additional information (subtitles, audio streams, camera angles, trailers, games, etc.) can be downloaded from the Internet via computer and stored on a SD card that either player will accept. This content can be played with the original content of Blu-ray Discs.
