The BDX5500 incorporates the UDE 4K Upscaling Engine and is Technicolor 4K Certified. UDE Ultra Detail Enhancement provides two-stage picture quality enhancement. Stage one provides 1080P video with both edge and texture enhancement so it improves picture quality for any Full HD or 4K TV. Stage two adds 4K Upscaling for use with Ultra HD TVs. The BDX5500 also supports 3D playback, has touch controls and is slot loading so it can be placed vertically.
The BDX3500 offers full Symbio streaming media and universal disc player content capability in 2D with built-in Wi-Fi and Miracast for peer-to-peer wireless capability.
Both new Symbio models come in a new square media box design and are shipping in late Q1.
