Product Details

Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Player, Model DMPBD50K

Key Features:

  • BD-Live
    BD-Live (BD-ROM Profile 2) lets users connect the Blu-ray Disc™ Players to the Internet to download data such as images and subtitles, and to join in quizzes and multi-player interactive games that are linked to bonus movie content contained on Blu-Ray discs. This fusion of movie content and the Internet will open the door to countless new possibilities. BD-Live also supports other interactive functions, such as Picture-in-Picture and Audio Mixing.

    * Available features vary depending on the Blu-Ray Disc.
  • High Quality Picture
    We have given the DMP-BD50 a host of original image-enhancing technologies created by Panasonic. We started with the PHD image processor, then went a step further by adding Deep Color compatibility, with 4,096 steps of gradation that provide even smoother, finer-quality images. The DMP-BD50 also provides 1080/24p playback, so you can enjoy the same 24-fps (frames per second) reproduction as the original movie.

    to learn more.
  • High Quality Sound
    The DMP-BD50 can reproduce the dynamic and clear sound with integrated decoders for the lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio formats, and also can be combined with a 7.1channel amplifier and speakers for full 7.1channel surround sound. The resulting audio quality rivals many studio master systems.

  • HD Networking
    The SD Memory Card slot on the DMP-BD50 makes it easy to link your camcorder or digital still camera by simply inserting an SD Memory Card with the data that you have recorded. The DMP-BD50 also supports VIERA Link, which lets you operate interconnected Panasonic AV equipment with the single remote control of your Panasonic flat-panel TV.

    Comments about Panasonic Black Blu-ray Disc Player:

    I would have given it a 5 star rating but I did experience a couple of (second or two duration) freezes in two different movies during playback. To be fair I don't know if it was the movies or the player.
    So far it's been a great asset to my home theater setup!
    Excellent picture! Simply great!!
    It's a bit pricey and I'm sure if I had waited it would have gone down in price just like all electronics do!
    Highly recommended!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Abt is the best! I was a first time buyer and a bit nervous about trying another online dealer I've not used in the past but was VERY pleased with Abt's service!!
    Prompt service from order to delivery!
    I called to verify my order just to make sure the online order went through OK and the lady in customer service was very friendly, courteous, professional and did not try to upsell or sell me any other accessories!
    Abt shipped exactly as promised ON TIME and send emails to verify order, and to advise me of shipment and tracking numbers! Delivery was ON time and exactly as promised!!
    Great job!
    EXCELLENT customer service!
    I'll be shopping Abt again!
    Highly recommended!!
