2012 THX Education Program Certified Home Theater, China


記得上年當完成ISF課程後,Anthony說過好希望可以考取THX的Home Theater的認証,七月中得悉THX將會在北京開展為期三日的Home Theater 1同2課程,多得太太的支持Anthony可以到北京完成考取THX的心願。為答謝太太的支持Anthony亦決定完成THX Home Theater I的課程後便和太太多遊一次北京,THX Home Theater II只好留待下次幾會了。


上課當日是星期五,Anthony於六時多就由酒店出發到國家會議中心,短短的12公理路程便用了一個多鐘的時間,北京的交通比香港還要繁忙,幸好多預了一點時間最後仍可於上課前到達目的地。


Anthony發現同學中最少有十多名時香港人,而當中除了從事影音相關行列外,亦有不少是純為興趣而報讀的影音發燒友,而他們全是將會完成三天課程。

THX對影像及畫面的測試光碟,當中包含大量的test pattern。


三天的課程內容是十分豐富,THX Home Theater I的課程主要是了解THX的歷史及相關理論,而Home Theater II的內容是影音系統安裝及微調的進階教學及實淺。THX HT1課程人數約六十多人,而THX HT2因為是在中國第一次舉辨,所以報讀人數比HT1更多需要分成兩班,Anthony相信THX HT2裏有更多的香港內行人士及發燒友報讀。

當日的地道午餐飯盒。




課程當日正好是2012中國影音集成科技展開幕日,Anthony當然不會放過機會於午餐時間順道逛逛、影影相。
















THX可說是影音認証的老大哥及先驅,Anthony有幸參與由它舉辨的課程真感到十分開心,而從中獲得的智識亦不少,但畢竟THX只是商業社會中的一個認証組織,所以Anthony希望在不久的將來可以再修讀一些傳統的影像及聲學的文憑程課,在影音智識範疇中更進一步。

OPPO BDP-103/BDP-105 news from AVS

I will be updating this post as more information is released for the players. At this time the only source of information about the upcoming players is available through Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity. You can find some photos and general information about the player by visiting the 2012 Cedia Expo Cave and looking at the bottom of Day 1. Chris Heinonen also made the following post on AVS Forum with some more details not contained in the Cave post.

Somehow I missed this yesterday morning, but it appears that Home Theater Review had already tweeted the existent of the BDP-10x series of players, and some of their specifications, yesterday morning.

Any information not included in these writeups, or not included by any other publication, is still under NDA. Please be aware that anyone with information about the players (Beta Testers, etc) can't divulge any information that OPPO themselves have not publicly discussed. If we can't answer your questions, please be patient. It is not like we do not like you (or maybe we really do not like you.

Like the BDP-9x series of players, most of the features of the players are going to be identical, so at this time there is no point in having two separate threads as not much information is available for these two players.



New or Enhanced BDP-103/105 Shared Features:
Latest generation QDEO which supports 4K upscaling
2x2 HDMI. Two HDMI inputs; Two HDMI outputs.
The Front HDMI input supports MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) which allows some of the newer smartphones to be connected direct to the player and transmits the phones screen to the television. This also allows for ROKU Stick support.
Newest Netflix interface which supports 1080p video, multi-channel audio, subtitle and alternative language selection, and Family Interface
Gracenote for looking up media information such as album art, artist, album, and track information for your CD, SACD, and user generated media
Backlit Eject buttons. No more thumbing around in the dark.
No more analog video. There is a "DIAG" port, but this is to only see the OPPO UI when there is no media playback. So for those of you who use a small monitor for media playback, you will need to upgrade to a DVI/HDMI capable display.

New BDP-105 Only Features:
Fanless (unlike the BDP-95)
Headphone Amplifier
Asynchronous USB DAC
Optical and Digital Coaxial Inputs
Properly oriented XLR outputs
Pricing and Release Dates are unknown.
