Sony Announces First 3D Blu-ray Disc Players
by Agam Shah

Sony took a lead in pushing 3D movies to homes, announcing on Wednesday a new Blu-ray Disc player and upgrades to existing players so that they will be able to show high-definition 3D movies too.

The company introduced the BDP-S470 Blu-ray Disc model and upgraded existing home theater systems, which will be able to play Blu-ray movies when related firmware for the devices is released later this year, Sony said in a statement. Movies based on the Blu-ray 3D specification, which was finalized by the Blu-ray Association in December, can be shown on the players.

The Blu-ray 3D specification supports devices including Blu-ray Disc players, gaming consoles like PlayStation 3 and high-definition TV models, including LCD and plasma screens. Blu-ray 3D DVD players will project 1080p high-definition images with additional depth, and special glasses will be required to view movies. The specification also will enable 3D graphic menus and 3D subtitles.
