Sharp introduced in Japan world’s first Blu-ray Disc Player with Hybrid Recording function – BD-HP1. Hybrid recording function allows recording of high-definition programs onto Blu-ray Discs from the AQUOS LCD TV via the Fami-link home entertainment network, an industry first. With the ability to record high-definition images from video software and digital broadcasting sources and give high-definition, high-resolution images and high sound quality superior to that of DVD, the Sharp Blu-ray Disc Player BD-HP1 is expected to become an indispensable part of the high-definition equation.
