IFA 07: Toshiba announces the HD-EP30 and HD-EP35 HD-DVD players

Home cinema, IFA 2007

Not to be left out of the massive IFA halls, good ol’ Tosh have announced a couple of new HD-DVD players, the HD-EP30 and HD-EP35. Both are third-gen models for the company, who are fully-paid up members of Team HD-DVD, as you’d know if you read Susi’s live-blog of the HD-DVD conference yesterday.

As you’d expect, they’re full 1080p with 24fps playback and contain a REGZA-Link through HDMI so you can synch it up with other Tosh kit. With support to Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD audio formats, they even upscale standard-def DVDs (gasp! the horror of standard definition!) to 720p, 1080i and the muchly-loved 1080p format.

Both models won’t send you into the red, with the HD-EP30 retailing for £240 and the HD-EP35 being sold for a schweet £300. Supposedly – we all know how these figures change drastically.
