Oppo BDP-93 3D Blu-ray Player Announced

Posted November 10, 2010 01:42 PM by Juan Calonge

OPPOOppo Digital has officially announced its new Blu-ray player model BDP-93, the successor to the acclaimed BDP-83. As previously reported (see Blu-ray.com, September 23), the BDP-93 will have all the functionalities of the 83, plus support of the Blu-ray 3D specification (with dual HDMI 1.4a outputs), Netflix Watch Instantly and Blockbuster on Demand, wireless-N networking, and an eSATA port. It will carry the same retail price of $499 as the BDP-83. Availability is simply listed as "coming soon."

Video

The BDP-93 uses a custom OPPO decoder. The video processor is no longer from Anchor Bay Technologies, but rather the Marvell Kyoto-G2 Qdeo. The BDP-93 offers enhancement options including video noise reduction, compression artifact reduction, intelligent color, contrast, detail and edge enhancements.

The BDP-93 features user selectable video output resolutions, including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and up to 1080p 50 or 60Hz. It supports 1080p 24Hz.

Other video features include Source Direct Mode; multiple zoom odes and vertical stretch; and subtitle shift.

The BDP-93 supports NTSC and PAL systems for both disc playback and video output. It can also convert content of one system for output in another.

Thanks to the dual HDMI outputs, you don't have to upgrade your A/V receiver to a 3D model in order to enjoy 3D: one HDMI output of the BDP-93 can be connected to a 3D TV and the other can be connected to an A/V receiver with HDMI connections version 1.1-1.3. Alternately, projector users can connect one output to a projector for home theater use and the other to a TV for casual viewing. For a multi-room installation the BDP-93 can output audio and video to two 3D or 2D TVs simultaneously.

Audio

The BDP-93 decodes and bitstreams Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio

Supported formats

Like the BDP-83, Oppo's new player plays DVD-Audio and SACD. It can play back DVD, audio CD, HDCD, Kodak Picture CD, AVCHD, MP4, DivX, MKV, FLAC, WAV and other audio/video/picture files on recorded discs, USB or eSATA drives.

Connectivity

Dual HDMI v1.4a outputs –Two assignable HDMI v1.4a outputs are provided to capitalize on the optimum audio and video settings to all old, new, and future HDMI televisions and receivers. With the option of full audio and video output to 2 displays; or dedicate one HDMI for audio, the other for video. The BDP-93 supports 3D and Deep Color modes on both HDMI output ports.

eSATA Port – The BDP-93 features an eSATA port on its back panel. Consumers can take advantage of this fast eSATA connection to play audio, video and photo files from their hard disks. Most commercially available hard disks pre-formatted with NTFS, FAT32 and FAT file systems are supported, and file sizes larger than 4GB can be played back.

Wireless & Ethernet – Using the included wireless-N adapter or the built-in RJ45 Ethernet port, users will be able to interact with BD-Live content, watch instant streaming programs from provides such as Netflix, Blockbuster etc., playback contents on their home network, and update firmware to keep up with new Blu-ray releases.

Dual USB Ports - Two USB 2.0 high speed ports are provided, one on the front panel and one on the back. Users can enjoy high definition video, high resolution photos and music directly from their USB drives.



All previous Oppo models are now discontinued.

I bought the BDP-83 35 days before I read the release that it would be discontinued for the BDP-93. I absolutely love the player. Because I will be in the market for an upgrade of my HDTV in the near future (3D and a larger screen) more than likely this will be the player of choice for me. That is assuming, of course, that the 93 meets the expectations set by the 83...

"jimmybobo

Kinda like the PS3 just more expensive?"

It does more than the PS3(excluding video games). It plays DVD-Audio and it has HDMI 1.4, which means it'll be able to output 3D video along with lossless audio. The PS3 can only do lossy.

Wasn't there a region free version of the BDP-83 available? I wonder if we'll get that for the 93.

I've got the BDP-83 and I love it. I'm moving out in a few months and I have purposely made room in my budget for a new Blu-Ray player as the 83 is going into the Bedroom... looks like the 93 is the one that i'm going to buy

@Adam_ME: No, there was no region free version officially available from OPPO as it would violate Blu-ray licensing agreements. There are region-free mods that come from third parties that OPPO doesn't exactly discourage the use of. I'm sure the same will be true for the BDP-93.
---

Isn't there also a rumor of a BDP-95, which would be the equivalent of the BDP-83SE? Or is that off the table? I don't want to invest in the 93 if a better 95 is also coming. I bought the 83, then had the upgrade done to the 83SE. That combo turned out to be fairly pricey.

Anyone in the know have any idea whether the Marvell Kyoto-G2 Qdeo processor will perform better or worse than the BDP-83's Anchor Bay Technologies processor?

Region free was not mentioned but it HAS to be there! The add-on for the 83 was a key part of it's attraction and I am sure the 93 will be the same. It will not be very successful if it does not.

I'll buy the moment I hear that it will be possible to make it region free. If it's not able to be made region free, then I won't buy it.
Does anybody know if this video chip is better than the one that was put into the BDP-83?
Also, does anyone know if this can Bitstream HD?

maybe a stupid question, but can I use it with only 1 HDMI ? I mean, they say it's a Dual HDMI 1.4 output player, but me I only have an old receiver that only have 1 HDMI input, 1.3a. Will it work? thanks!

I wonder if the vertical stretch will work on scoped 3D content (i.e. 2.35:1). I hear most video processors today, including the ones in the new JVC projectors, cannot handle a 3D Stereoscopic Vertical Stretch for scope movies, leaving us with the zooming method, instead of V-Stretch and AR lens.

One other good thing to note, is the 93 will carry over the 83 "subtitle shift" feature for those of us who zoom in or use V Stretch on scoped movies. Yes!!!

Hey don't mark me down as I'm new to the region free business but why does the BDP-93 need a region free mod like the BDP-80 or 83?(I was going to get that one then it got discontinued) The specs say that it supports pal playback and the specific video coding so why is a mod necessary? Thanks in advance.

richochetguro: Because Oppo and all other manufacturers are not allowed to sell a Blu-ray player without regional restrictions. That's part of the license to make a Blu-ray device. All region-free players have been modified by software or hardware hacks/modifications AFTER they leave the factory.

This sounds like a wonderful player. The 3D upgrade alone is worth it (if you're in that market), but the included wireless, eSATA port, and dual HDMI 1.4a ports are also wonderful.

If a region free mod becomes available, I will definitely purchase this. I'm not going to go into a rant about region locking as I understand why the companies do it - whether I agree with them or not. But I simply own, and plan to continue buying, far too many region locked discs to upgrade my main player (currently the BDP-83) to something that isn't region free. So I'll keep my eye out for that almost-certain region free mod to appear.

I'm interested to see if it any faster at loading discs - given it's a 3d player one would think it has a quicker cpu onboard which can't be a bad thing generally.

Current owners of 83 other than added features I don't see 93 will improve any more on blu ray picture quality unless your willing to fork out another $500 for a new toy.

Oppo doesn't sell region free or multiple region players. The earlier Oppo DVD players were modified by software command, the BDP-83 required a hardware mod kit. Since the BDP-93 is brand new don't expect anything immediately as no one will have one to tinker with.

@ricochetguro: a bit of clarification, in case it wasn't clear from the other posts - PAL playback is supported, but only if the region is acceptable. PAL on region 1 (USA) or region 0 (region 0 = no region) will play back, but the majority of PAL discs are fixed to region 2 or others, etc. There is software that will copy a region 2 PAL disc to your hard drive and remove the region so it is region 0, then you can burn again to a new disc and play it, but a region-free mod makes it so you can just stick the original disc in the player.

This will be the next Blu ray player that I get as soon a I get a 3D TV, which will be a number of years away. But Oppo building on the stand alone player that was an absolute game changer will be too hard to pass up in the future. The wireless router is on of the smartest things Oppo could have possibly done.
