Tascam Announces Second Generation of Its Professional BD-MP1 Blu-Ray Player

Tascam is pleased to announce the second generation of its popular BD-MP1 professional Blu-ray player. With a rich feature set and intuitive operation, the new BD-MP1MKII is an ideal choice for a wide range of high-end residential and commercial installations, including educational lecture halls, meeting spaces, theatres, dining facilities, retail stores and more.

The compact, 1U rack-mountable BD-MP1MKII supports a wide range of media formats via Blu-ray, DVD, and CD discs, and can play many video, still image, and audio formats from SD cards and USB memory devices. Since SD cards with a maximum capacity of 512 gigabytes (SDXC) are now supported, users can access significantly more data than with the original model.

Ideal for display panels in commercial spaces

The Tascam player boasts a Power-On Play function, enabling playback to commence automatically upon power-up. Combined with repeat playback, audio/video will start, loop and play continuously until the system power is turned off. This allows content to be made available without having to keep a constant eye on the unit. There’s also a seamless repeat function available which can be defined by chapter, title or A–B range.
Another notable feature of the BD-MP1MKII is the ability to display a black screen on the monitor during startup rather than the manufacturer’s setup screen and source selection menus. The function also hides status messages (Play, Pause, etc.) on the monitor during normal operation, helping to avoid any unwanted visual distractions in both situations.

Connect to virtually any system

The BD-MP1MKII offers a host of outputs including professional XLR connectors and RCA connectors for stereo signals, a seven-channel output array for 7.1 surround sound systems and an HDMI output, which can pass audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD to an AV amplifier. There’s also a coaxial digital audio output for Dolby Audio, DTS and other professional formats.


Professional remote control options

The BD-MP1MKII can be controlled remotely via LAN or RS-232C. To prevent accidental changes to settings or unauthorised use, the front panel and tray can be locked, as can IR remote control operation.
