Sony Unveils New Line of Blu-Ray Disc Players and Wireless Home Theater Systems

Sony has announced the addition of four new Blu-ray Disc players which include a stand-alone player with Wi-Fi capability for easy BD-Live access and Blu-ray Disc home theater systems with S-AIR wireless audio.

The BDP-S360 and BDP-S560 stand-alone players and BDV-E300 and BDV-E500W BD home theater systems deliver full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema output, decode the latest advanced audio codecs and are BD-Live capable with your broadband internet connection and purchase of external memory.

Offering built-in Wi-Fi wireless network capabilities (802.11N/G/B/A), the BDP-S560 can easily connect to the Internet through your existing wireless home network to download and stream BD-Live content including additional scenes, short subjects, trailers, interactive games, and more. It also enables easy firmware updates to assist in keeping your player up-to-date with the latest Blu-ray Disc media and features.

While compatible with most wireless routers, the BDP-S560 also supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup(TM), for a quick and easy connection to enabled wireless routers. Additionally, the player is Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA(R)) ready, allowing it to connect to other DLNA compliant devices to share digital photos.

The model will be available this May for about $350.
