Introducing the BD-P1200
The BD-P1200 with its true HQV 1080i to 1080p High Definition (HD) de-interlacing feature, gives the sharpest and most detailed HD video output imaginable.
You won't see notice any jagged edges with the per-pixel algorithm that works independently on each and every pixel in a scene. This is combined with the sophisticated multi-directional diagonal filter.
To put it simply, it doesn't get much better than this for a home cinema experience.
Switching on the "Movie Frame" feature will let you adjust the Blu-ray player's HDMI output to a perfect 24 frames per second, as originally filmed by the Hollywood studios, for an even more improved video picture quality.
The powerful hardware-based engine for HQV processing can also provide per-pixel noise-reduction, including detail enhancement and an advanced scaling, which results in delivering premium quality upconverted Standard Definition video content from your existing DVDs.
Converting SD to the preferred HD means that the unit has to resize and upscale the image up to 6 times.
Samsung is one of the many manufacturers that we have price comparison for in the category of Blu-ray Players.

Samsung BD-P1200 Features
The original BD-P1000
had a few issues for serious home-cinema experts.
The BD-P1200 looks to address many of these issues. It will play CDs with ease and now has a HDMI 1.3 port, although the audio support seen in this player still has a little to be desired. Mainly, the audio output support is still lacking a little.
Playing Blu-ray discs along with DVD discs is obviously excellent, and this player now has a new slick design.
As with many new Samsung designs, this device features a shiny black front panel with 3 buttons. The front panel would be prone to the odd finger-print, but it would be quite surprising if you operated it that way!
The directional control on the front of the player gives access to play/pause, stop, forward, and back.
With the BD-P1200 can watch Blu-ray and your current DVD discs, obviously this also includes standard music CDs.
The later version of HDMI (1.3) gives more colour and greater colour gamuts.
Samsung has included Silicon Optix HQV video processing in the BD-P1200 which gives great film quality.
