The BD-AMS20U 3D Blu-ray Disc Player from Sharp is a full-featured multi-format disc player that fits everything into a 1.9" (48.2mm) high compact package. Fully prepared for the future, it also supports playback of 3D content.

Many Blu-ray discs are encoded in 3D, and this player has what it takes to deliver these wraparound visuals in crisp, clear full HD 1080p. Built-in Wi-Fi means this player works with your home network Internet connection so you can start taking advantage of everything this exceptional player has to offer. Once you're connected, you can get access to its online streaming capabilities and see online movies, videos, TV shows and sports. Get access to the Netflix movie database (with subscription), hundreds of videos on demand from HuluPlus, and create a customized radio station with Pandora. Clearly, this player can keep you entertained even before playing any of your favorite discs.

In addition to its connectivity features, it can support a variety of disc formats including Blu-ray (both standard and 3D), DVD and music CDs. Two USB ports give you additional connectivity options, as you can simply connect a USB flash memory drive to the front port without reaching to the back of the unit to display photos or videos on your TV and enjoy music files. You can even display slideshows with music from CDs or USB storage, and stream in 3D from your camcorder.

All of these features and connectivity options are packed tightly into a slim chassis, making for an ideal addition to any home entertainment setup in any room of the house. If you're looking for built-in Wi-Fi, online streaming capabilities with 3D 1080p playback support, this multi-functional disc player is a smart choice for your home theater.
