SYDNEY: Westwell has announced it will sell three new portable DVD players by August, with a 10-inch flagship topping the list.
The Olin branded line will include two 7-inch swivel screen models and the aforementioned 10-inch model.
The PD03 base model comes with a 270 degree swivel mount screen, plays all major disc formats and has a built-in Dolby decoder. It is locked to Region 4 discs.
The PD04 model adds NTSC playback and DivX, MPEG 4 and Kodak Photo CD compatibility.
Olin’s flagship PD05 uses a 10.2-inch 800 x 400 display and comes with a three-in-one card reader, USB 2.0 port, FM transmitter and in-built analogue TV receiver. It can play all formats, including DivX and Photo CD.
Unlike its lesser siblings, the PD05 also has a zoom in/out function and can speed up for slow down playback. Users can use the ‘virtual keyboard’ function to operate the player and parents can use a parental lock function.
Precise launch dates and prices were unavailable by time of publication.
