LG unveils its first Blu-Ray player

The Blu-ray camp appears to be picking up a little steam these days. Earlier on we reported on the new Samsung firmware update and now LG has revealed their first Blu-ray player. THe BD100 takes advantage of the most Blu-ray has to offer with 1080p, double layer disc compatability, audio and digital S/PDIF and an upscaler.

From the article: 

And what a stomaching feat! LG, living up to expectations as usual,
produced a real swanky Blu-ray player that supports an
impressive list of file formats. The BD100 is a full 1080p model featuring an HDCP-compliant HDMI
port, as well as component, composite and coaxial to round things up nicely! It
reads single layer and double layer Blu-ray discs (25 or 50 Go), DVD+R and DVD-R discs, DVD-RAM, and MP3 and WMA audio CDs. Standard is 5.1 audio and digital optical
S/PDIF with an upscaler that brings the signal up to
480i, 480p, 720i, 720p and 1080i to 1080p.

The BD100 will be « competitively
priced »and released « early 2007 » so we were told.
