Sony touts upscale DVD player

Only the best DVD quality will do

Reducing security risks from open source software

Sony has unveiled its latest upscaling DVD player, which the electronics giant’s also touting as the perfect way to display still photos on your HD telly.

Sony's DVP-NS708H DVD player upscales DVD to 1080p

The DVP-NS708H upscales to 1080p HD quality on any HD Ready TV, although Sony would obviously prefer it if you used a Bravia LCD. The player can handle a selection of DVD formats, including DVD-R, and CDs, such as CD-RW.

The latter’s useful because it means you can burn JPEG snaps onto CD from your computer, and then display them through the DVP-NS708H on your HD Ready telly. This is done through Sony’s PhotoTV HD feature, which is already integrated into some E4000 Bravia LCDs, and helps to optimise the display quality of your treasured snaps.

Should you have splashed out on a Bravia set already, then you’ll also be glad to know that the player’s Bravia Sync feature allows you to control it through your telly’s remote control – so that’s one less remote to lose down the back of the sofa.

Sony hasn’t spun out a release date or UK price for the DVP-NS708H yet.
