By |


Philips-BDP7501-2.jpgPhilips has announced that its BDP7501 Ultra HD Blu-ray player, first introduced at CES 2016, will ship in June and carry a price tag of $399.99. The BDP7501 supports HDR and Wide Color Gamut technologies, and it includes dual HDMI outputs--one HDMI 2.0a to mate with a UHD TV and one audio-only HDMI 1.4 to mate with older audio devices. The BDP7501 has a brushed aluminum chassis; Philips will also offer the BDP7301 in a piano black finish for the same price.

From Philips
P&F USA, a Philips brand license partner, next month will deliver a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player to offer the ultimate in 4K home entertainment.

The new Philips BDP7501 plays back content at four times the resolution of current Blu-ray players for a stunningly detailed image. And with HDR support, content played on an HDR TV, such as any Philips 2016 4K Ultra HD set, delivers images with startling brightness, contrast and color.

"4K Ultra HD Blu-ray provides consumers with the opportunity to own and enjoy stunning 4K content without the glitches that can occur when streaming large 4K files," said Karl Bearnarth, executive vice president, sales and marketing, P&F USA, Inc., the exclusive North American licensee for Philips consumer televisions and home video products. "This is a significant step in the transition from HD to 4K Ultra HD, and one that we believe will quicken consumers' adoption of 4K, especially as they see what the combination of 4K, HDR and Ultra HD Blu-ray's wide color gamut can achieve."

The Philips Ultra HD Blu-ray player offers built-in HEVC and VP9 decoders for playing Netflix and YouTube 4K content. It also features 4K upscaling for non-4K sources, and plays 3D Blu-ray discs. For the best possible sound, it offers both Dolby Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio | Essential.

Connections include HDMI 2.0a and 1.4a output, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Ethernet and USB Multimedia support for HEVC, H.264, AVCHD, AAC, MP3, JPEG and more. It also offers discrete HDMI audio output for connecting to legacy audio receivers.

The player is available in two versions - the BDP7501 features a real brushed aluminum chassis, while the BDP7301 offers a piano black chassis. Both players are available next month at a suggested retail price of $399.99.
