  • Panasonic has today announced its full 2015 European line-up of Blu-ray Disc Players, incorporating the new DMP-BDT370, DMP-BDT270, DMP-BDT170, DMP-BDT165 and DMP-BD83 models in addition to the existing DMP-BDT700 and DMP-BDT460.
    Panasonic’s long history of image research and development in Hollywood has enabled it to accumulate a quality imaging technologies for faithfully reproducing movies in your home, just as the directors intended. The DMP-BDT370 and DMP-BDT270 bring this expertise, incorporating the latest 4K technologies, to a much wider market in Europe.

    Both the DMP-BDT370 and DMP-BDT270 feature a 4K Up-scaling function that automatically converts your existing content into 4K images, when displayed on a 4K TV. In addition, with 4K JPEG playback mode (DMP-BDT370 only), you can view your holiday photos in full 4K quality on the big screen.

    With full DLNA functionality, you can connect the DMP-BDT370, DMP-BDT270 or DMP-BDT170 to your home network, and play all your favourite content – including video, music and photo - from other compatible devices in your home.

    In addition, with Miracast you can mirror content from your smartphone or tablet directly onto the large TV screen so you can share with your family and friends. As Miracast establishes a direct Wi-Fi connection between your devices, you don’t need to have access to an external Wi-Fi router for this to work.

    Providing access to the internet and a wide range of online material, the BDT370, BDT270 and BDT170 also allow you to enjoy a world of online content. You can also access social networks such as Facebook and Twitter via the player, so you can use your TV to connect with friends from the comfort of your sofa.

    For added convenience, a newly advanced HDMI CEC feature also allows you to operate both the TV and the Blu-ray Disc Player with a single remote control.

    The 2015 range also includes two new entry models - the DMP-BDT165, a Full HD 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player, and the DMP-BD83, a Full HD 2D Blu-Ray Disc Player available in silver or black.
