The Philips BDP5506 is a 3D Blu-ray DVD player and part of five models announced at the January 2011 CES convention in Las Vegas for a first quarter release. This and the BDP7506 are at the top of the line sharing a touch control front panel, although all have a slim design. Images are processed at full 1080p at 24 frames per second and older DVDs will be upscaled to that resolution as well. AVCHD playback allows playback of a variety of formats and is found on all models. They are also capable of streaming when connected to any TV from sites such as NetFlix, Blockbuster, FilmFresh, VUDU and NetTV with access to over 4500 HD channels, and, vTuner for internet radio. Philips MediaConnect lets you connect wirelessly to your computer to view everything on the big screen as well.
