Berlin’s IFA expo saw the unveiling of a new flagship player from Philips.

The BDP9500, featuring a Qdeo video processor and stylish aluminum frame is set to deliver “a cinematic experience to all consumers,” says Philips.

The BDP9500’s processor helps to eliminate noise as well as enrich colors and bring depth to pictures, helped along by Burr-Brown analog to digital converters. The BDP9500 and its little brother, the BDP7500 both offer 7.1 channel analog outputs for sound and support all HD audio formats.

Philips also lifted the veil on their newest budget line player, the BDP3000. Offering standards like Full HD playback and BD Live support, the BDP3000 is geared towards customers looking to jump into Blu-ray for the first time.

Pricing and availability for these models have not yet been announced.
