Sharp BD-HP16U

The Sharp BD-HP16U is a full HD 1080p AQUOS Blu-ray Disc (BD) player. It is compatible with an AQUOS LCD TV for high-definition audio and video content. The BD-HP16U supports BD-ROM Profile 2.0 (BD-Live) which provides interactive features through ethernet jack-enabled internet connection. Users can download and stream bonus content such as additional scenes, shorts, trailers and multi-player interactive games.

Features

The BD-HP16U incorporate features like audio decoding, AQUOS Pure Mode, and lower power consumption in both Power On mode and Standby more (19W power consumption). The AQUOS Pure mode allows users to connect to a Sharp Aquos LCD TV with AQUOS Link function via HDMI cable. When the BD player is connected, the AQUOS automatically switches to “dot by dot” mode allowing the users to view every pixel of 1080i and 1080p content with no overscan. The BD-HP16U features DMI™ 1.3 digital output with x.v. color, and 1920 x 1080 video at 24 frames per second output, eliminating the need for frame-rate conversion that can cause motion artifacts on film-based material and degrade image quality. It also features audio format with full decoding, outputing lossless surround-sound formats including Dolby® TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio via HDMI digital output. The player also decodes Dolby Digital Plus, for optimum surround sound. The unit also features Quick Start for quick disc loading. The BD-HP16U features a JPEG viewer, and low power consumption in both Power On mode and in Standby mode. Other features are piano-black finish, blue media circle that illuminates to indicate the status of the player and is compatible with a range of formats including BD-ROM/RE/R, DVD Video, DVD-RW/R, DVD+RW/R and audio CDs.

Previous questions about this product

  • Can this play media saved on a PC or media server?

    I have a Sharp LCD TV that has DLNA capability, which allows it to connect to my uPNP / media server to access and play video and audio files. It would be great if this could do the same while upconverting the signal. I have little need for the Blu-Ray and BD-Live function as I have no Blu-Ray movies, a large library of standard DVDs and would be happy with the upconversion. I thank you in advance for your input.
