Samsung Announces New Blu-ray Disc Players

Samsung is coming into the CEDIA show (September of this year) with its arms swinging. Two new products were announced this week that will be shipping starting in September. The new BD-P2400 and BD-P1400 have advanced features like HDMI 1.3 and support for Dolby TrueHD audio. Possibly the most significant specification is the new players' support for 24p or 24 movie frames per second playback. Since most movies are filmed at 24 frames per second, setting the new Samsung Blu-ray Disc players to 'On' removes the need for 2-3 pull-down or judder effects when coupled with a compatible display. Each of these players will also support 60Fs for enhanced compatibility with many of today's HDTVs.

dolby trueHD audio? does that mean this unit will pass the dolby trueHD audio to an HDMI 1.3 receiver for decoding (or whatever?)

will the existing BD movies allow this?


Senior Audioholic
Yes. The HDMI 1.3 will pass on DD TrueHD or DTS-HD to a receiver capable to decode these codecs provided HDMI is set to Bitstream in the player.

For those with present receivers, the player will decode the new codecs via:

1. HDMI when set to PCM

2. multichannel analogs

Conclusion: The purchase of the new Samsung BR player does not require a new receiver. But you can make use of the new receiver if you have one.
