Panasonic Adds MKV Support to 3-D Blu-ray Players

The DMP-BDT300 is the first of the 3-D BD player crop to earn DivX Plus HD certification.

There's something great about a company that does something so helpful for their consumers. Panasonic has just announced that the DMP-BDT300, and all of the other Blu-ray players they'll be releasing this year, will support DivX Plus HD.

DivX Plus HD combines H.264 video and AAC audio for a high quality picture and 5.1 channel audio, and it comes packed in an MKV file format. It's about the best you're going to find for high definition video in a digital format.

Since Panasonic's new line of players all boast DivX Plus HD certification, you can play AVI, DIVX and MKV files with no problem. All that HD content you've been downloading will be fully compatible with all of Panasonic 3-D players.
