Apart from this, the app quite impressively displays Blu-ray Disc details such as jacket artwork, actor, production information and more.

Users can easily enjoy full HD 1080p videos on a single-disc Blu-ray Disc, DVD, CD, SA-CD player. Viewing photos, listening to music and playing videos via USB and DLNA is also enabled by the device. The Gracenote technology of the player further provides an entertainment database browser.
