Panasonic DMP-B500 portable Blu-ray player lets you tweet from your remote

7 January 2010 No Comment admin

Panasonic were showing off their new DMP-B500 and DMP-B100 portable Blu-Ray players at CES 2010, both of which feature high resolution screens (10.1″ and 8.9″ respectively) and Panasonic’s new VIERA CAST technology, which it uses across a variety of Blu-Ray players, home theatre systems and HDTVs.

VIERA CAST (apparently the capitals are important!), will give access to a full range of social media apps, which you can watch on the high resolution screen that the new portable Blu-ray players offer.

Seems everyone is stuffing social media apps onto their gadgets theses days, but it’s how easy they are to use that will make or break them. Seeing your tweets on a portable Blu-ray player is one thing, but how easy can it be to write your own tweets from a remote control?!

For its part, VIERA CAST now supports

  • Netflix
  • Pandora
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Picasa

as well as Fox Sports, Bloomberg news, and Amazon Video on demand. That’s quite a range, so even if text entry is tricky, you’ve at least got easy access to videos and music.

Both portable Blu-ray players feature tonnes of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, an SD Memory card Slot (which can also play back JPEG images and High Definition video), a USB port, Dolby Digital and DTS HD, and VIERA Link, which uses HDMI to control all VIERA Link combatable products with one remote.
