Samsung has announced plans to make running line production change to BD-P1000 Blu-ray Disc Players
Running line production improvement will begin in last week of October 2006
As we approach the 2006 holiday season, Samsung will make a running line production improvement to BD-P1000 Blu-ray disc players destined for the U.S. market. This production line improvement is slated to begin in the last week of October, and will add Java title compatibility to coincide with the launch of BD Java titles being released this fall. In addition, these players will include a modified setting for the noise filter reduction circuit that will provide a slightly sharper picture.
Both of these improvements will also be provided as a firmware upgrade to existing owners of the BD-P1000 Blu-ray disc player. This upgrade will be available free of charge starting in the last week of October, as a download on Samsung.com or on firmware discs by calling Samsung Customer Service at (800)SAMSUNG.
All Samsung BD-P1000 players – including players sold since US market launch this Spring - are compatible with movies to be released on dual-layer (50GB) BD-ROM discs this Fall.
