Furthermore, the BD -30 goes one step beyond physical media formats by incorporating a USB port, which will allow users to access audio and video from any media source compatible with the USB transfer protocol. The Lexicon BD -30 is truly a future -proof piece of technology, allowing custom home systems integrators the ability to reassure their clients that they'll be able to watch their movies in virtually any format years into the future.

For video, the VD -30 incorporates Anchor Bay's award -winning Video Reference Series™ (VRS™) video processing chips, which convert standard -definition and high -definition analog and digital video sources up to full 1080p, as well as HDMI compatibility. For audiophiles, the Lexicon BD -30 is just as versatile, able to play back CD, SACD, and DVD -Audio discs, offers a Source Direct mode for audio and compatibility with Dolby® TrueHD™, HDCD, DTS -HD®, and can play back up to 7.1 surround audio.
