Anthem is set to release its new Blu-ray player with promising build quality.  The unit is compatible with most of today's media formats.  The player also supports additional features to make BD-Live interactivity faster and more user-friendly.

The unit features 1 GB of onboard memory for BD-Live features.  In addition there is a 2 GB USB flash drive for added memory.  The BLX-200 supports true 24 fps to display Blu-ray films the way they were natively shot.  User selectable resolution outputs allow the user to bypass the unit's de-interlacing and processing to send the original video to an external processor.

In terms of audio, the unit supports bitstream and decoding of each of today's formats including TrueHD, DTS-HD and all lossy codecs.

The BLX-200's support of AVCHD allows movies in the HD format to be burned on standard DVDs and played back.  The unit is modest in its outputs.  There is a component and composite video output in addition to HDMI.  The unit also features both a digital coaxial and toslink audio ooutput.

The BLX-200 is listed at $799.
