Mitsubishi Developing In-Vehicle Blu-ray Player


Friday, February 20, 2009 -- TOKYO -- Mitsubishi is developing a single-DIN Blu-ray player for vehicles that could be commercially available by the end of the year, according to several reports.

Blu-ray.com reported the news on Feb. 17. Engadget.com also reported the news, showing an image of the prototype.

The device, which measures 50-by-178-by-180 mm, will be able to play BD-ROM, BD-R and BD-RE discs. The player operates on Linux, and is expected to be able to be paired with the company's existing OEM in-dash navigation system.

At International CES 2008, Panasonic also debuted a prototype of a single-DIN in-car Blu-ray player, which never materialized. Mitsubishi has not indicated whether the units will be made available to consumers or if they will be used solely as OEM equipment from auto manufacturers.

A waste if they don't develop an in dash 1080p monitor. The latest monitor is only 800x480, that is where standard dvd is at now. Even than, you won't be able to tell the difference between 1080p and not in a tiny 7" LCD screen.

You are right when you say it's for the "gotta have it" people. I bet one of the first install will be in pimp my ride.
