SHARP BD-HP20U Blu-ray Disc DVD Player

Now you can enjoy the best of 1080P video on your AQUOS® LCD TV. Especially designed to work with AQUOS LCD TVs, the BD-HP20U AQUOS Blu-ray Disc™ player provides seamless operability via the AQUOS LINK™ function through the HDMI™ connection. Performing as if it were all one system, the BD-HP20U's Quick Start feature lets you enjoy gorgeous Blu-ray Disc™ video with the touch of a button in less than 10 seconds. With eight terminal outputs including HDMI™ outputs and 1080P as well as DVD up-conversion to 1080P, you'll enjoy full digital high-definition video and high-fidelity audio.


HDMI™ Output – Simple One Cable Connection
A one cable connection carries complete digital audio and video connection between your HDTV and the BD-HP20 player for the best high definition video and the highest fidelity audio in home theater today. Blu-ray Disc™ technology brings the multiplex experience right to your home.

Full HD Resolution – An Amazing Home Theater Experience in the Comfort of your Home
The Blu-ray Disc™ format has full 1080P resolution capability – that's the maximum picture resolution available today. 1080P = 1,080 lines of vertical resolution, progressively scanned.

High Fidelity Audio – Real Life-Like Sound
Blu-ray technology lets you take advantage of the latest surround sound formats such as Dolby® TrueHD. This means you will enjoy high quality lossless 7.1 Channel digital surround (48KHz only ) that is bit for bit the equivalent of a master recording.

HDMI™ Up-Scaling – Backwards Compatible
Even your existing standard definition DVD library can look better than ever because Blu-ray Disc™ players are backwards compatible with your DVDs. By optimizing standard DVD playback signals to 1080P (when displayed on a 1080P capable HDTV with HDMI™ technology), the BD-HP20 can deliver more picture and sound quality.

AQUOS LINK Function – Seamless Operation among Sharp Audio Video Products with One Remote Control
Why use two remotes when you can use one? The AQUOS LINK function allows you to control both your AQUOS LCD TV and your AQUOS Blu-ray Disc™ player together. When you connect your AQUOS LCD TV to the Blu-ray Disc™ player via an HDMI connection, you will have seamless interoperability between your AQUOS LCD TV and BD-HP20 Blu-ray Disc™ player.

Quick Start – Enjoy Movie Content Quickly without Delay
A proprietary Sharp technology allows you to enjoy viewing high definition content on your big screen quicker than most other Blu-ray Disc™ players. Unlike many other Blu-ray Disc™ players, the BD-HP20 has an impressive startup time allowing you to begin watching your movies in approximately 10 seconds.
