Gizmodo: Those crunched for space (and keen on looks) might consider Panasonic’s SC-BFT800, a wall-mountable, all-in-one Blu-ray affair. Packing speakers, 3D Blu-ray playback, WiFi connectivity, and iPod support into one bar, the unit also offers virtual 7.2 support with wireless subwoofer.
Panasonic recently announced the release of a slim and wall-mountable FULL HD 3D Blu-ray DiscTM Home Cinema System with a built-in FULL HD 3D Blu-ray DiscTM player to the market. The system is equipped with advanced image technologies, like the PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus and Full HD Upsampling, that have proven hugely popular with Panasonic Blu-ray DiscTM players. These technologies reproduce the ultimate in 3D images, rendering them extremely faithful to the original movies. 3D movie featurs allow users to experience powerful, dynamic worlds that they have never before encountered, such as exciting leaping effects and enhanced depth, lustre and texture.
Advanced sound technologies complement the true-to-life 3D images of the FULL HD 3D Home Cinema System. The wireless Kelton Subwoofer’s powerful deep bass sounds further enhance 3D film enjoyment, while sounds are distinctively produced by a Clear-Mode Dialog that makes dialogue seem to come from the centre of the screen. In addition, the Virtual 7.1-channel Surround function reproduces dynamic surround sounds that further enhance the enjoyment of watching 3D films.
The SC-BFT800 also features great networking like VIERA CAST which brings a variety of streaming services including YouTubeTM Videos into the living room. Wireless LAN capability4 eliminates the need to connect a LAN cable, so the system can be installed without the need for any complicated wires. Users can watch 2D images (JPEG) and movies (AVCHD/MPEG2)5 from digital cameras and camcorders via the integrated SD card slot and USB port, as well as 3D video content recorded by the Panasonic camcorder HDC-SDT750. With these and other features, the SC-BFT800 provides exciting entertainment for family and friends.
The SC-BFT800 also features a sliding front door that lets the use set Blu-ray Discs/ DVDs/CDs into the main unit by opening it from the right, and an iPod/iPhone by opening it from the left. The sophisticated, stylish, slim body makes the design an ideal match for a VIERA TV, while enhancing any room interior. Panasonic also addresses important environmental issues in its production system. For example, a single chip LSI called UniPhier is used for image signal processing. Unification of this LSI helps to lower power consumption and achieve a more compact design while also decreasing the burden on the environment by using limited natural resources more efficiently.
This Panasonic Blu-ray DiscTM Home Cinema System has taken a large step ahead in image and sound quality, networking, easy operation, and environmental consideration, to provide even greater AV enjoyment.
