ClearPlay ships self-censoring DVD player

ClearPlay DVD Player

Looking to provide an alternative to especially sensitive parents, ClearPlay today shipped out its Content-Filtering DVD Player. The movie reader is one of the few to allow parents to scrub movies of content they find objectionable without affecting the disc itself: a USB port for a USB flash drive lets adults automatically apply filters downloaded from the Internet that blot out audio or visuals thought inappropriate for children. A subscription model keeps the USB drive updated as movies are released to DVD, ensuring that parents can gradually wean children on to more mature movies at their own pace.

The USB port doubles as a connection for viewing photos, the company adds. Though the player does not output beyond 480p, it can connect to HDTV sets through component video and supports both Dolby Digital audio as well as playing user-made DVDs and MP3/WMA audio discs. The player is on sale at Best Buy for $90.
