Oppo Digital has officially announced its new Blu-ray player model BDP-93, the successor to the acclaimed BDP-83. As previously reported (see Blu-ray.com, September 23), the BDP-93 will have all the functionalities of the 83, plus support of the Blu-ray 3D specification (with dual HDMI 1.4a outputs), Netflix Watch Instantly and Blockbuster on Demand, wireless-N networking, and an eSATA port. It will carry the same retail price of $499 as the BDP-83. Availability is simply listed as "coming soon."
The BDP-93 uses a custom OPPO decoder. The video processor is no longer from Anchor Bay Technologies, but rather the Marvell Kyoto-G2 Qdeo.
