New BD players from LG

LG demonstrated several new BD players at IFA, including the BD390, its first Blu-ray player with advanced DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) and integrated Wi-Fi, and the HLB54S, a super slim Blu-ray Soundbar with wireless subwoofer.

The BD390’s Wi-Fi and DLNA technology means that it can access shared media, such as home movies or music, from other connected devices, and its built-in 1GB memory allows easy and smooth running of this personalised BD-Live content. The full press release can be read here.

Meanwhile the HLB54S Soundbar also includes Wi-Fi and DNLA, but also features audio technology developed in conjunction with audio expert Mr Mark Levinson to deliver superior quality sound. The player boasts 430W of sound through the integrated speaker and wireless subwoofer, as well as a dock for iPods or iPhones. The full press release can be read here.

The BD390 should be available later this month, with the HLB54S following in November.
