Smart, speedy and superior Blu-ray Disc™ Players from Sony

Press Release   •   Jan 07, 2014 01:00 GMT

Take a step up to smarter entertainment with the spring collection of Blu-ray Disc™ Players from Sony. They’re more intelligent than ever, bringing you an exciting world of content with stunning pictures and sound, powerful connectivity and easy control.

All four new Blu-ray Disc Player models are sure to impress before the opening credits have even rolled. Super Quick Start guarantees snappier, more responsive operation while powering exciting new picture and sound features.

Mirror your smartphone on the TV screen

Don’t keep it to yourself: Screen mirroring via Miracast™ lets you see exactly what's on your Android smartphone or tablet[i], super-size on the TV screen. You don’t even need a Wi-Fi router, connection to the Internet or special apps. Have fun sharing Internet videos, YouTube clips, games and more. Whatever’s on the screen of your mobile device is sent wirelessly to the Blu-ray Disc player to enjoy on TV.

Stable streaming

Wi-Fi performance is boosted with an extra-sensitive antenna and module inside the player that pull in weak router signals from a wider range across the house. So now you don’t need to worry where the player’s located for great-quality Full HD video streaming across your home network – even 3D content.

More codecs, more content

You’re spoiled for choice with Sony: all new Blu-ray Disc Players let you enjoy a huge range of file and content types. Play movies, music and photos stored on USB drives or your home network server. Your playback options have never been wider as all models have expanded to support additional video codec in .mkv movies.

Can’t wait for the show to start

Super Quick Start wakes the player in an instant. Accessing Internet content and apps is quicker than ever, with boot-up time now less than one second. Blu-ray Disc content plays faster than ever too: pop the disc into the tray, close it, and your movie is playing more quickly than before. The disc drive itself is quieter and more durable, with a sealed dust-resistant mechanism that cuts playback noise to a whisper while assuring accurate, error-free playback.

Get more detail

The range-topping S6200 upscales your precious Blu-ray Disc™ collection to 4K Ultra HD, with four times more pixels than Full HD. You’ll love the extra detail that breathes fresh life into all those favourite movies when you’re watching on a 4K TV.

Even web video quality is boosted with IP Content Noise Reduction Pro that’s powered by the speedy Dual Core processor. Low-resolution clips streamed from the web look crisper and clearer, with lower noise plus rich textures and natural tonal gradations.

Sensational sound

This year’s Blu-ray Disc Players match stunning pictures with best-ever sound. Digital Music Enhancer combines Sony-unique audio technologies for a more satisfying soundtrack – whether you’re watching Internet videos or enjoying your MP3 music collection on a connected USB drive. Digital Music Enhancer restores those subtle high frequency details that get lost when you’re listening to heavily-compressed digital music files, and also restores lost dynamics in low-bit rate audio tracks for a more spacious, natural listening experience.

The new BDP-S6200, BDP-S5200, BDP-S4200 and BDP-S1200 Smart Blu-ray Disc™ Players by Sony are available in the UK from end of January 2014.
