ezGear, a company well-known for their high end audio and video electronics, plans to debut their BluCoba EZ3000 Blu-Ray player in hopes it gains popularity and recognition. The EZ3000 is the first product in the BluCobra series, so we can probably expect more, similar Blu-ray players later on. They claim that the EZ3000 and the BluCobra lineup as a whole contains features found in advanced models, but sell for a less expensive price than others.
To begin with, the Blu-Ray player comes with many video outputs including HDMI 1.3, component video, composite video, and S-video. It also supports SACD, Blu-Ray (obviously), and DVD all at 1080p and 24Hz outputs. In case your HDTV isn’t full HD, the EZ3000 also can output at 1080i, 720i, and 480i resolutions. For audio, it supports MPEG-2, Dolby TrueHD, Digital Dolby, and DTS-HD Master Audio.
Charlie Bernstein, President of ezGEAR, had this to say about their EZ3000:
“With the conversion to HDTV almost complete, the demand for affordable Blu-ray players is growing everyday. To date, full-featured Blu-ray players have been too expensive for many consumers. With the economic challenges facing everyone, ezGear believes American consumers are looking for Blu-ray products they can afford. With an affordable price and the flexibility of the EZ3000 to connect to virtually any TV or Stereo, ezGear is making it easier for consumers to adopt digital television in 2009.”
He is right about Blu-Ray players being too expensive for the average American at this time, and he is trying to decrease the price as much as possible in efforts to make it more popular. By spring of this year, the EZ3000 should be on sale for $399.99 or lower. If you are interested in learning more about this Blu-Ray player, you check out their CES booth 25321.
