Samsung Launches First Portable Blu-ray 3D Player
Samsung has brought out its first portable Blu-ray 3D player, as well as 3D TVs priced starting at US$1,099, in an effort to make 3D products accessible to buyers.
The BD-C8000 player allows users to watch full high-definition movies on the go, or to watch 3D movies when connected to a 3D TV, said John Revie, Samsung senior vice president of home entertainment, at a press event in New York.
The portable player has a 10.3-inch screen and built-in Wi-Fi. It runs about three hours on batteries and connects to 3D TVs via an HDMI 1.4a port. The HDMI specification allows for content in 3D formats to be transferred between devices, including movies based on the Blu-ray 3D format.
The player is priced at $499 and is available now, according to the company.
