Sharp BD-HP20S Blu-ray player - 1080p
Using a long-life and particularly high performance 210 milliwatt quality laser, as well as being fitted with modern protocols, together with many AQUOS features, means that the Sharp BD-HP20S is a fully technically-developed product that is ready for the future. All components are made by Sharp and key components such as the opto-electronic laser diodes and the multi-beam scan unit were developed by Sharp. Thanks to an HDMI connection and 1080p output, Sharp's quality device does not just process HD signals and high fidelity audio sounds, but transmits these to the output device without loss in transmission. Fitted with the current HDMI 1.3 protocol , the BD-HP20S is as fully set-up for the future as it is compatible with current devices. In respect of digital rights managements, the BD player is also fully up to date. With a doubled data throughput by comparison with the HDMI 1.2 protocol, HDMI 1.3 can pump out as much as 10.2 gigabytes to the output device. This permits reproduction of the high definition audio formats Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby truHD with up to eight sound channels, as well as a substantially larger colour range for natural skin tones and optimal colour reproduction during dark scenes.

Ease of use is assured by means of a slimly designed multifunctional remote control, with an AQUOS LINK function that can control connected AQUOS LCD TVs or audio systems of the latest generation at the same time. In combination with other devices from the AQUOS range, the Sharp BD-HP20S can truly play at full power and guarantees a particularly user-friendly home entertainment system, with attuned high-end technology from a single source.
