LG pitches Blu-ray media streamer ahead of CES

BD, 3D and DLNA all in one

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

In a bid to beat the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) rush, LG has today announced some of the products it will announce at the show in Las Vegas next month.

Specifically, a couple of 3D-capable home theatre systems and a 3D Blu-ray Disc player.

The 3D BD box is worth a closer look: it has an on-board 250GB hard drive for storing downloaded movies and what LG calls "apps", though they're almost certainly widgets for Facebook, Twitte, Flickr and the like rather than true self-contained programs.

The BD690 also incorporates wired and wireless connectivity, and can send and receive DLNA content streams. Stick in a CD and the BD690 will auto-rip it.

The player also has slimline design, LG said, that gives it good portability.

"Audio files [sic] in most major markets will be able to experience LG’s new 3D AV devices starting in early 2011," LG said. There was no word on pricing. ®
