The BD-MP1 is a robust, single-rackspace multi-media video player for professional applications like permanent installation in the contractor market and touring. Building on the success of the Tascam BD-01U, this high-definition playback device can be controlled via LAN, RS-232C and a wireless remote control and is therefore an ideal component of integrated media systems. Nevertheless, all menu operation can also be controlled with keys on the front panel. Apart from Blu-ray discs, DVD and CD media, the BD-MP1 can play several formats of audio files and still images stored on SD cards or USB flash media.
The BD-MP1 offers eight audio outputs for 7.1 surround sound, a pair of balanced XLR and RCA unbalanced stereo outputs, a coaxial digital audio output for SPDIF, Dolby and DTS signals and an HDMI audio/video output. The analogue and digital output levels can be attenuated up to 40 dB. Other professional features include system control over HDMI (HDMI CEC), NTSC/PAL conversion, defeatable on-screen information for the connected display, a power-on play function, chapter/title/A–B repeat, instant replay and resume after power-on.
Tascam channels the years of experience gained with the DV-D01U and BD-01U predecessors to create a reliable video player for commercial AV, education, house of worship, boardroom and other high-stress installs or live touring.
