Bringing the Cinema Home - Philips' Cinema 21:9 Launch

New Blu-ray and DVD Players

New Philips Blu-ray Players

Despite its relatively soft adoption rates, there's only one HD format left standing and that's Blu-ray. Philips too is doing its part to push the boundaries of this segment with new players that have support for BD-Live Profile 2.0 and are able to output 1080p at 24 fps for cinema-like quality. And if it's just plain old DVDs that you have, these players are able to upscale your DVDs to 1080p resolution.

Portable DVD Players

Not forgetting the portable DVD player segment, which remains popular for users during those long trips, Philips has a new range, all equipped with support for DivX media besides the usual DVD formats. Prices range from $199 for the lightest, entry level PET712D to $539 for the PET1031 with its mounted stand and 10.2-inch display.
