The BDX2000: Toshiba's first Blu-ray Disc player

BD Live profile 2.0 is supported on the unit – enabling you to download software updates, interactive content and entire movies over an Ethernet connection.

A classy smoked mirrored front panel even opens out to reveal the player’s SD memory card slot.

The BDX2000 hooks up to your HD TV through an HDMI connection, while the player’s other features include DivX and AVCHD playback, picture-in-picture, and support for Dolby TrueHD audio.

Toshiba’s BDX2000 will be available in the UK during December, but a price hasn’t been announced. ®
