High-Value, High-Performance Models
With their sleek new aluminum/reinforced resin front panels, center-mount drawers and SD/SDHC Card readers for WMA, MP3, JPEG files (also compatible miniSD or microSD with adapters), Marantz’s BD7004 and BD5004 Blu-ray models are true multimedia players that bring a superior video and audio experience within reach of more consumers. Both feature HDMI 1.3a supporting 36-bit Deep color for richly detailed images and vibrant color production and HD Audio bit stream outputs, and both feature Anchor Bay VRS Technology Video Scalers, with 1080p scaling from SD DVDs for additional viewing enhancement.

In addition to reading Blu-ray (both commercial releases and recordable discs), DVDs (movies and DVD-R/RWs), as well as standard and recordable CDs, both players also include SD and SDHC memory card capability, as well as mini-and microSD.  In addition, the BD7004 handles DivX® and AVCHD files. The unit also features internal decoding for both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and video scaling by Anchor Bay. Both also handle disc-based DivX files in addition to AVCHD (high definition video format for Camcorder) contained on discs or solid-state memory devices. IR flasher inputs and outputs on both players add to their system-wide control capabilities, while their Ethernet ports allow users to update the firmware to take full advantage of future developments.
