Prestigious consumer-electronics maker Harman/Kardon has announced the release of its first Blu-ray player, the BDP 10, initially for the European market only. It will have BonusView and BD-Live capability and support advanced audio codecs, 1080/24p video, and JPEG and Divx, playable from its front USB port.
Information on Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD support is still a bit undefined, as the specifications don't say whether the player only bitstreams those codecs or also decodes them. Also, the player does not include multichannel analog audio outputs.
List price in Germany is 700 euros, and it will be available during May.
