The parade of next-gen hardware announcements from CEDIA continues with news of a new Blu-ray player from Pioneer.
Dubbed the Elite BDP-95FD, this third Blu-ray player from Pioneer picks up where the BDP-94HD (released last spring) left off, featuring 1080p video at a rate of 24 frames per second.
In a first for Pioneer, the new deck will feature HDMI version 1.3 output, enabling support of all high-resolution audio formats.
Also new to the BDP-95FD is HDMI Consumer Electronics Control (CEC), which is designed to simplify integration of operation with other HDMI-CEC-enabled high-definition theater components.
Pioneer says the Elite BDP-95FD will carry a $1,000 suggested retail price, and is due on store shelves this October.
