Blu-Ray Does Not Come Cheaply: $1000

While Sony Corp., one of the world’s largest producers of consumer electronics, said it would reveal its Blu-ray products in June, 2006; the players are available for pre-order now, weeks before actual availability. While Blu-ray players from Sony are more expensive than HD DVD devices by Toshiba, their cost is not as high as expected initially.

According to online store, Sony’s BDP-S1 Blu-ray disc player will cost $999, which is $800 less compared to Pioneer’s Blu-ray disc player, but still, about $200 more expensive compared to Toshiba’s premium HD DVD player. Moreover, Sony’s player is expected to be available in summer, whereas HD DVD devices are available already now.

Sony BDP-S1 Blu-ray disc player is able to playback various, both single-layer and dual-layer, Blu-ray discs and a range of DVD media. The BDP-S1 will process audio in DTS-HD, Dolby Digital and some other formats. The players can output video in up to 1080p (1920x1080) resolutions using HDMI interconnection and multi-channel audio using the same method.
