The BLX 200 features backward compatibility with existing DVD and CD libraries, Spectacular 1080p picture quality with up to 1920 x 1080p screen resolution, HDMI v1.3 with support for Deep Color and x.v Color. Aesthetically, the BLX 200’s sleek styling, brushed aluminum faceplate and Anthem-blue lights mark it clearly as a part of the Anthem team.
The new Anthem BLX 200 Blu-ray Disc Player boasts ultra-fast loading and response time.
True 24p! The BLX 200 offers full compatibility with 24 movie frames per second playback. And since most movies are filmed at 24 frames per second, the BLX 200 is able to play back movies in their native format, reducing unwanted artifacts for a true film-like experience at home.
Building on Anthem’s audio heritage, the BLX 200 goes well beyond standard Dolby Digital and DTS audio playback featuring audio decoding and bit stream audio output for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. For those with extensive DVD collections, the BLX 200 includes backward compatibility for standard DVD and CD formats (DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD and CD-R) with the added benefit of 1080p upscaling through HDMI, improving the picture quality of ‘prior-to-Blu-ray’ DVD collections.
A full 12-bit video pipeline offers low noise and full high-definition motion-adaptive de-interlacing for 1080p60 output. The improved video quality offers a cleaner, smoother and truer-to-life picture, free of visible artifacts. The user-selectable 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p output allows DVD to be output at its native 480i resolution, bypassing the BLX 200’s internal de-interlacing, if desired, to allow the use of cutting-edge video processing like that found in Anthem and Anthem Statement A/V processors.
With the BLX 200’s AVCHD support, high-definition home movies burned to a standard DVD in AVCHD format can be played back in high-definition. The BLX-200 player supports BD-ROM, BD-R/RE, DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, Audio CD, Audio CD-R/RW, MP3 and Digital Photo CD (JPEG).
