TASCAM Expands Professional Blu-ray Line with BD-MP1 Professional-Grade Blu-ray Player

Building on the success of its popular BD-01U Blu-ray player, TASCAM introduces the new BD-MP1 professional-grade Blu-ray player. The BD-MP1 replaces the rugged and reliable BD-01U, incorporating dynamic features such as Power-on Play, and protective user control options. The BD-MP1 is the perfect choice for a wide range of commercial installations, including public, educational and commercial facilities, theaters, amusement and entertainment businesses, to name a few.

The compact, single rack space BD-MP1 saves space by eliminating the need for discrete audio/video playback devices in an installed rack, accepting a broad range of media and file formats via three versatile input slots — disc tray (Blu-ray/DVD/CD), USB flash or SD card.

In addition to its versatile input options, the BD-MP1 supports all popular media and file formats include Blue-ray (BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE), DVD (DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW), CD (CD-DA, CD-R), Video (MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4 AVC, VC-1, AVCHD, WMV), Image (JPEG, GIF, PNG) and Audio (LPCM, MP3, AAC, WMA).

Protected operation from accidental settings changes or non-authorized use is provided via the Panel Lock button on the front panel. IR and tray lock functions prevent accidental or user-error operation or alteration of pre-set controls in commercial installations, helping ensure consistent and reliable performance in any installation.

A unique Hide Menu function allows customization of the display monitor's boot up process. In this mode, the monitor display screen can be set to display a black screen during start up rather than displaying the manufacturer's standard factory setup screen and source select menus. The result is an elegant and non-distracting visual start-up environment each time the system is turned on.

In addition to remote control operation, all playback functions can be accessed locally from the front panel control buttons if desired (Stop, Play, Pause, Skip, Repeat). Playback controls can be locked from accidental changes or non-authorized use via a front panel Lock button.

For integrated commercial systems where remote control operation beyond IR is desired, the BD-MP1 offers both RS-232C and IP network connectivity. The unit's RS-232C port enables seamless, reliable two-way status feedback and control between devices, while Ethernet connectivity streamlines connectivity for integrated system control and operation.

Connection of display monitors or televisions is quick and easy via the unit's back panel HDMI plug-and-play port.

When it comes to professional audio quality and commercial integration, the BD-MP1 is pure TASCAM. 7.1 Surround Sound connectors are provided on the rear panel for fully immersive, rich audio playback in any commercial installation. Additionally, professional-grade XLR balanced stereo analog outputs as well as RCA unbalanced stereo are offered.

Coaxial and Digital Audio Out connections round out the BD-MP1's audio feature-set, accommodating professional-grade digital audio output formats including Dolby, DTS, and others. Playback of 2 channel linear PCM is also supported.

The TASCAM BD-MP1 is a professional-grade Blu-ray player for commercial installations that extends the legacy of TASCAM's BD-01U Blu-ray player. The BD-MP1 expands on the BD-01U's legacy and feature-set, adding powerful remote control, performance features and user interface functionality, while accepting all popular media and file formats via multiple input slots.
