Wireless Blu-ray players with VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA) stream on-demand HD video, audio and other entertainment from top providers including VUDU, Netflix and Pandora
VIZIO today announced three wireless Blu-ray players with Internet Apps, that offer consumers even more entertainment on demand, such as streaming HD movies, TV episodes, music, photos and social networking.
In addition to providing full 1080p performance with Blu-ray and 1080p up-scaling with DVD discs, VIZIO's new Blu-ray players, the VBR210, VBR220 and VBR231 offer even more entertainment on demand from the Internet, from top brands like Netflix and VUDU, which offers High definition movies and TV shows, and Pandora Internet Radio. The players also deliver access to other well-known online services, such as the Associated Press.
The VBR210 and VBR220 Blu-ray players utilize built-in 802.11n single-band 2.4 GHz wireless to connect to the user's high-speed Internet connection. Each delivers up to 7.1 channels of digital audio output over HDMI, with support for Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby® Digital Plus, and DTS HD® audio formats. Both players have a USB port that supports JPEG and MP3 media playback. Available now, both players carry an MSRP of $189.99.
The VBR231 Blu-ray Player is the first in the market to offer superior performance with VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA) through its built-in 802.11n Dual-Band wireless connectivity. With the ability to use both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, this player delivers reliable high-speed connectivity in almost any room of the home — and it is a great complement to the VIZIO Dual-Band Wireless Router. Additional features include support for Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS HD audio formats over HDMI, and a USB port for JPEG and MP3 playback. The VBR231 is scheduled for release in July with an MSRP of $199.99.
