Sometime this year they will release tvs with Dolby Vision yet the upcoming 4k player wont. Makes sense...
As for its roster of specs and features, the new BDP7501 for starters offers the obvious, which is full 4K Blu-ray disc media support. In addition to this, the compact media player supports HDR media in both the HDR10 and Dolby Vision standards and comes with HEVC (H.265) and VP9 4K content compression support.
No mention of Dolby Vision. Too bad, I was really excited to get this player if it supported DV.Here it is at Canada's Best Buy for pre-order, June 24th.
549.99$ _ not bad I guess..
I wouldn't pay more then 200.00$ though.
Nothing listed for the US sight though _ that's surprising !
Before you write off the player entirely, you should wait for a second source confirming lack of DV. Best Buy's product listing could be incomplete or inaccurate; for example, that page calls the player the "Philips Blu-ray Player with 4K Upscaling."No mention of Dolby Vision. Too bad, I was really excited to get this player if it supported DV.
That's what the display button on the remote it for.Does this player really not have a front display? If so, that's would be a deal killer for me. I guess that's the drawback of the form factor, although it doesn't have to be.
It is moot right now though since I don't have a 4K display anyway.
Really? Lame. Is there at least an on light?That's what the display button on the remote it for.
Even the large Samsung UHD BD player doesn't have a display. I can't say I've ever needed one.
