Learning About DVD and Blu-ray Players
DVD and Blu-ray players are popular for watching movies at home. Designed with the best sound effects and the highest picture quality, Blu-ray disc players allow you to watch movies in ultra high-definition from the comfort of your living room.
DVD and Blu-ray Player Features
These media players are designed with a range of features to suit different entertainment needs.
If you're using a 4K TV that has a high dynamic range (HDR), consider a 4K Blu-ray player. The 4K upscaling capabilities will help your DVDs or standard Blu-ray discs appear sharper on your 4K TV.
Choose a player with this feature if you're planning to watch movies on integrated apps. Some players only support HDR on discs.
Audio Resolution and Connections
Whether you're using large speakers or tabletop audio, choose a player with high-definition sound, especially if your home theater doubles as your listening room. For audio connections, consider HDMI connectivity, as it produces higher audio quality than other connections.
If you want to stream videos on any HDTV, choose an internet-enabled Blu-ray player. You can go for one that uses a wired connection or one with Wi-Fi capability. Wireless DVD players are lightweight and easily portable, and portable Blu-ray DVD players are especially important if you'll use the devices in different locations.
What Type of Connections Do Blu-ray Players Have?
Portable Blu-ray players come equipped with different audio, video, and internet connections. Most audio and video inputs include digital coaxial, digital optical, analog stereo, component, S-video, and composite video inputs. What's more, most players have Ethernet or LAN ports for wired connections to your home network. Some models have Bluetooth connectivity that you can use to connect with wireless multi-room speakers. You'll also find USB ports that you can use to access digital media stored on your flash drives, or to connect to a USB Wi-Fi adapter if your player doesn't have built-in Wi-Fi.
