Samsung's video MP3 player, Blu-ray/HD DVD player

Samsung unveiled an MP3 music player with video playback and its first high-definition player supporting the two rival movie disc formats -- Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD.

The devices are among several new products that the South Korean manufacturer announced yesterday on the eve of the IFA consumer and electronics show in Berlin.

The YP-P2 is MP3 music device that can also be used to view video. The device comes with a high-resolution screen that displays 30 frames per second in DVD movie format and the 16:9 screen ratio. It also features a touch screen that uses Emoture input technology.

The Bluetooth-enabled YP-P2 allows up to three people to listen to music at the same time when using the company's YA-BH270 headsets equipped with the same short-range wireless technology.

The slim 9.9-millimeter player comes with 2G bytes, 4G bytes and 8G bytes of memory.

Samsung also announced the YP-S5 music player as a successor to the YP-K5 launched last year. The 14.95-millimetre device comes with integrated stereo slide-and-tilt speakers to allow others to share music. It also includes a text viewer, photo viewer, flash game and Bluetooth connectivity.

The 7.9-millimetre thin YP-T10 MP3 player features an animated interface for younger users.

In addition, Samsung launched its first Duo HD disc player, the BD-UP5000, which supports Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD. The company previously supported only the Blu-ray Disc format.

Samsung is also targeted the home cinema market with a new product line of LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs. The devices, part of Samsung's F9 series, feature the company's new LED (light emitting diode) SmartLighting technology. The technology intuitively senses the TV signal and adjusts the brightness level by turning on and off the right combination of the backlight units to produce a contrast ration of 500,000:1.
