Sharp announced two new Blu-ray Disc players, the BD-AMS10U and BD-AMS20U. Both models incorporate features from the new SmartCentral interface; the “super picture” setting which improves image resolution by integrating pixel information from lower resolution video from a DVD source or streaming content and restores missing image information while enhancing image details; DLNA interface; and AQUOS Pure mode which creates an optimized color pallet for AQUOS TVs.
