The BDV-HZ970W is the first 3D home theater system from Sony, set for a Summer release in 2010. The system combines a 5.1 wireless speaker system to create surround sound, with wireless rear speakers included, that has DLNA functionality and can be used to operate further purchased speakers placed around the home. The Blu-Ray player is capable of reading both 2D and 3D output at full High Definition and can upscale lower resolutions close to 1080p. The player can perform the upscale function for media from both online sources and discs. The system includes a wireless adapter that can be used to connect to the internet without the assistance of another device like a home computer; media can then be streamed to the player directly for use.
