Our take on the LG BD590

by Kristen Schaub
LG

Blu-ray Disc players — the ultimate picture and sound

Blu-ray players deliver a better picture to your HDTV than any other available source. In fact, Blu-ray's 1080p picture is a perfect match for the 1080p screens found on most current TVs. Blu-ray movies also offer the most precise and realistic surround sound you can get. These players do a terrific job with standard DVDs, too — you'll see a cleaner, clearer picture with every disc in your collection. Many Blu-ray players can connect to the Internet for watching online movies from Netflix® and other video services.

Entertainment on tap

LG's BD590 gives you an all-in-one solution for home entertainment. You not only get the gorgeous picture and sound of Blu-ray discs, you can also use the player's built-in 250GB hard drive to store your music collection for easy access. And with Internet streaming options, your entertainment possibilities are endless.


Home theater picture and sound at its best

The BD590 sends a stunning "Full HD" 1080p picture to your HDTV, and also decodes the richly detailed Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD soundtracks found on Blu-ray discs. The combination produces the kind of thrills that you've probably only experienced in a movie theater. This player does wonders for regular DVDs, too, upconverting their standard-def picture to look near HD. Use an HDMI cable to connect this player to your TV or receiver to ensure you're getting the best picture and sound.

250GB built-in hard drive lets you store your favorites

Here's a cool feature — this player comes with a built-in hard drive so you can store and play back your favorite movies, music, and photos whenever you want. Keep your best family photos and home videos on the hard drive where they're always available for friends and family to enjoy. Or rip your CDs straight to the hard drive so you can keep the discs safe in their case. The BD590 even lets you choose what bitrate to encode your songs in, from a space-saving 128kbps up to lossless audio quality. And you can get instant album art and song info courtesy of Gracenote (Internet connection required).


NetCast™ reels in more Internet entertainment

This player wirelessly connects to your home network for easy Internet access. Stream movies, TV shows, and music from the Web whenever you want. Access a number of popular streaming services, including video from YouTube, Vudu, Roxio CinemaNow, and Netflix. You can also view your photo albums on Picasa, listen to radio stations that you create on Pandora, and check the weather with AccuWeather, all from the comfort of your couch. The BD590 can even stream videos, photos, and digital music from your compatible computer for playback on your home theater system. With an ever-expanding list of entertainment options, you'll never get bored.

Disc Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The LG BD590 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

  • BD-ROM: Blu-ray discs such as movies that can be purchased or rented.
  • BD-R/RE: BD-R/RE discs that contain video, music, or photo files.
  • DVD-Video: DVD-Video discs (8cm/12cm) such as movies that can be purchased or rented.
  • DVD+/-R (DL): DVD +/-R discs (8cm/12cm) which contain video, music, or photo files (Video mode and finalized only).
  • DVD+/-RW: DVD+/-RW discs (8cm/12cm) which contain video, music, or photo files (Video mode and finalized only).
  • CD-Audio: CD-audio discs (8cm/12cm) which can be purchased.
  • CD-R/RW: CD-R/RW discs (8cm/12cm) that contain music or photo files.

Region Code: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The BD590 is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1.

Copy Protection: Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Blu-ray Disc Overview: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a new high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 54 mbps. Blu-ray Disc discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:

  • Better picture quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
  • Better sound quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, and uncompressed 7.1 channel PCM.
  • Much greater storage capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
  • Compatibility with your current disc collections: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.

Note: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet via the rear panel Ethernet terminal.

AVCHD: AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) is a high definition digital video camera format used to record in high definition or standard definition on DVD, using an efficient data compression coding technology. The format is designed to compress video and audio (Dolby Digital or Linear PCM) data, enabling a high definition video signal shot on a digital video camera recorder to be recorded on DVD discs, in the same way as it would be for a standard definition signal.

DivX Playback: The LG Blu-ray disc player supports playback of DivX (.avi/.divx)  and DivX VOD video files recorded on BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD-R, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.

JPEG Playback: This unit will play JPEG still picture files recorded onto BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD-R, CD-R, and CD-RW discs. The JPEG file size should be less than 4,000 x 3,000 @ 24-bit/pixel or less than 3,000 x 3,000 @ 32 bit/pixel. The player can recognize up to 2,000 still-image files and folders. Still images on your disc can be viewed in a Slide-Show, as well as rotated and zoomed.

MP3/WMA Playback: The BD590 supports MP3/WMA audio files (8-320 kbps) recorded on BD-R/RE, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs recorded in ISO 9660+Joliet, UDF, or UDF Bridge format. When stopped and restarted, playback resumes at the same point as long as the tray hasn't been opened and the player hasn't been turned off.

Note: This unit does not support ID3 Tags.

Parental Control: The LG BD590 offers Parental Control settings to limit BD, DVD, and streamed Internet video according to the age of the users (DVD: 1-8, BD: 0-255). The control settings are protected by a custom 4-digit password.

Video Features

Video Outputs: The LG BD590 Blu-ray disc player features two high-definition video outputs (HDMI, Component) and one standard-definition video output (composite).

  • HDMI (ver.1.3): The BD590's HDMI output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. This unit features HDCP copyright protection technology, and must be connected to an HDCP-compliant device. If your TV has a DVI input instead of an HDMI input, you can connect this unit to your TV using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter. You will also need to connect audio cables to the player because DVI is a video only cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.
  • Component Video: The component video resolution can be set to 480i, 480p, 720p, or 1080i. When a copyright protected DVD is played, the maximum component video output resolution is 480p.
  • Composite Video: The composite output is fixed at 480i.

1080p HDMI Output with DVD Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BD590 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your standard DVDs. Output options include Auto (highest resolution accepted by the TV), 1080p (60 Hz video or 24 Hz), 1080i, 720p, or 480p.

1080p/24Hz: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second the BD590 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

Deep Color: The LG Blu-ray player supports a color depth of up to 12 bits. Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting it to a TV that does not support Deep Color.

x.v.Color: The BD590 supports x.v.Color, meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs when they become available in the future.

TV Aspect Ratio: You can select a TV aspect ratio to match your television's screen type. You can choose from 16:9 Original, 16:9 Full, 4:3 Pan & Scan, or 4:3 Letter Box.

Picture Mode: You can adjust the contrast, brightness, color, sharpness, and noise reduction of the player's video output during playback.

BonusView: The BonusView feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.

Marker Search: You can start playback from up to nine memorized points.

Last Scene Memory: This unit memorizes the last scene from the last disc that is viewed. The last scene remains in memory even if you remove the disc from the unit or switch off the unit. If  you load the disc that has the scene memorized, the scene is automatically recalled.

Note: The Last Scene Memory function for a previous disc is erased once a different disc is played.

Multi-View Angle: If the disc contains scenes recorded at different camera angles, you can change to a different camera angle during playback.

Auto Power Off: The screen saver appears when you leave the player in Stop mode for approximately 5 minutes. The unit will then automatically turn itself off after the screen saver is displayed for 25 minutes.

Audio Features

Surround Sound Decoders: The BD590 has built-in Dolby Digital and DTS surround processors; multi-channel PCM, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio are output through the HDMI jack (when encoded on the Blu-ray Disc).

  • Dolby Digital Plus: Dolby Digital Plus was developed as an extension to Dolby Digital. The audio coding technology supports 7.1 channel surround sound. Dolby Digital Plus also includes the standard Dolby Digital bit stream and is compatible with all current Dolby Digital processors using the optical or coaxial digital output.
  • Dolby TrueHD: Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel surround sound for the next generation optical discs. The reproduced sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.
  • DTS-HD High Resolution Audio: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio supports a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multi-channel surround. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with a lossy compression.
  • DTS-HD Master Audio: DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps and uses lossless compression (Lossless), and DTS-HD Master Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.

DRC (Dynamic Range Control): When content encoded in Dolby Digital or Dolby Digital Plus is playing back, you may wish to compress the dynamic range of the audio output (the difference between the loudest sounds and the quietest sounds). This allows you to listen to a movie at a lower volume without losing clarity of sound.

Audio Outputs: The LG BD590 Blu-ray disc player features three digital audio outputs (HDMI, Coaxial, and Optical) and one analog RCA audio output.

Digital Audio Settings: The player offers the following digital audio output settings.

  • Output Sound Format: Select the output sound format when you connect the player via a HDMI or coaxial digital connection.
    • PCM Stereo: use when connecting this unit's HDMI or coaxial/optical digital output to a device with two-channel digital stereo decoder
    • PCM Multi-Channel (HDMI only): use when connecting this unit's HDMI output to a device with multi-channel digital decoding
    • DTS Re-Encode: use when connect this unit's HDMI or coaxial/optical digital output to a device with a DTS decoder
    • Primary Pass-Thru: use when connecting this unit's HDMI or coaxial/optical digital output to a device with LPCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, and DTS-HD decoders
  • Sampling Frequency: Select which sampling frequency the digital audio output uses to match your connected system.
    • 192kHz: select this if your AV receiver is capable of handling 192 kHz signals
    • 96 kHz: select this if your AV receiver is not capable of handling 192 kHz signals; this unit will automatically converts any 192 kHz signal to 96 kHz so your system can decode them
    • 48 kHz: select this if your AV receiver is not capable of handling 192 kHz and 96 kHz signals; the unit will automatically convert any 192 kHz and 96 kHz signal to 48 kHz so your system can decode them

We have had this Blu-ray for more than a week. The first movie we watched was Avatar Blu-ray. It was so beautiful,vivid and amazing to watch!. This is a Blu-ray that is easy to use and has a nice look to it too. I tried to play old cd's on this expecting an error message to come up. Nope....it played them with no problems! I would recommend this to everyone!
