Sharp intros BD player with online video service

At the CEDIA show on Thursday, Sharp announced it will soon launch a new Blu-ray player, the BD-HP52U. The reader will have the ability to connect to the web, and Sharp will partner with an unnamed service provider to bring premium streaming video content. This partner is expected to be named later in September. Other known features of the BD-HP52U include Blu-ray Profile 2.0 support and the ability to decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound formats.

Sharp has also officially unveiled the DK-AP8P and the DK-AP7P iPod docks, both of which are portable. The AP8P includes a removable front face plate that can then act as a remote control, and is more powerful than the physically smaller DK-AP7P. Either has 2 speakers and a subwoofer, and will charge any docked iPods or iPhones. Their internal batteries are rated at about six hours of playback, and a carrying case is included. Auxiliary line inputs let users connect devices other than iPods.

The Blu-ray player will begin shipping sometime in October, priced at $380. Sharp's DK-AP8P and DK-AP7P iPod docks will ship later in September, priced at $190 and $130, respectively.
