Summary of Sony BDV-E3100
BD-Live: players combine the features available in other Blu-ray Disc players - breathtaking video and audio playback, interactive features, and the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and secondary audio mixing of BonusView players - with an Internet connection that allows viewers of BD-Live compatible titles to enjoy special online benefits and features such as extra downloadable content, online bonus features and live transactions. In addition, some BD-Live players can also be updated or upgraded using the BD-Live Connection. BonusView: sometimes referred to as "Profile 1.1," refers to a collection of features available on all Blu-ray player models introudced after October 31, 2007. In addition to basic playback and interactive features, these players offer consumers the ability to enjoy Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and secondary audio features (particularly useful when playing games that utilize additional audio streams while a movie is playing) on compatible BonusView discs. S-Master: Digital Amplifier produces superb accuracy, clear separation of signals, and balanced sound reproduction using a digital-to-digital process. They are designed to be highly efficient, producing minimal heat while taking up about a quarter of the space of conventional amplifiers. Sony’s S-Master accepts all digital signals in digital and cleanly amplifies the signal in “digital” without needing to convert it into analogue first. Using a simplified signal path and full digital processing, the audio signal is taken directly from DSP stage without additional D/A conversion. This keeps the purity of the digital audio signal right up to the final speaker output, reproducing a realistic sound experience just like the original recording.
