Old Lyme, CT (March 26, 2009)--HHB has begun to ship its UDP-89 professional DVD/CD player.
The new "clean screen" feature targets the unit's suitability for use in AV and broadcast applications. According to HHB, the "clean screen" ensures that the video output remains free of the brand logos that render consumer DVD players unsuitable for professional use. Furthermore, menu commands and transport status appear only in the front-panel display, leaving the screen a "clean" plain grey when no content is being played.
Housed in a 1U rackmounting chassis, the UDP-89 plays CD, Video-CD, SACD, DVD-Video and DVD-Audio discs, and features a built-in preamp with volume control for direct connection to active 5.1 speaker systems, Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, MPEG audio decoding, professional cueing, A-B repeat function and RS232 and parallel control interfaces.
HHB managing director Ian Jones comments, "We're delighted that the UDP-89 has now come to market, and confident that we have spent our time well in creating a universal DVD/CD player that AV professionals can depend upon."
