Sony BDP-CX960

The Sony BDP-CX960 400-disc Blu-ray Disc™ MegaChanger is part of Sony's Blu-ray Disc line that store and play 400 Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, and CDs, allowing consumers to relocate their disc library to a centralized location. User can also download information from Gracenote's MusicID® and VideoID™ products to organize movies and music into the unit.

Features

The Sony BDP-CX960 features full HD 1080 / 60p and 24p True Cinema™ output, 7.1 channel analog audio and video output incorporating Sony's HD Reality Enhancer and Super Bit Mapping technologies. The HD Reality Enhancer technology continually analyzes the original source bit by bit, sharpening edges and reproducing detail, and reduces the effects of film grain. Super Bit Mapping delivers color gradation to true 14-bit equivalent color tone from 8-bit sources. The BDP-CX960 also upscales standard definition DVDs to 1080p through Sony's Precision Cinema HD Upscale technology when connected to a 1080p display via HDMI. Other features on the BDP-CX960 includes Precision Cinema HD Upscale which uses advanced conversion and processing to detect image changes at the pixel level, rather than the level of whole scan lines; separate algorithms that process moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are free from motion artifacts; an Ethernet port for connectivity to a local home broadband network to download metadata from Gracenote, software updates and to access BD-Live™ content; an external port for local storage so users can add their USB flash storage device to support BD-Live content; support for 7.1 channel Dolby® TrueHD and Dolby® Digital Plus, DTS®-HD High Resolution Audio, and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding as well as bit-stream output via HDMI and is compatible with an array of video formats, including BD-ROM/R/RE (BDMV and BDAV modes), DVD-+ Video/R/RW, CD/R/RW, and MP3/JPEG on BD/DVD/CD recordable media. The BDP-CX960 is available in fall for about $800.
