MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2008) - OPPO Digital (, a renowned leader in up-converting DVD players, today announced that its newly launched DV-983H Universal DVD Player has received the highest recommendation from Secrets of Home Theater and Fidelity, the online source for in-depth home theater reviews. In fact, OPPO's flagship up-converting DVD player earned the first perfect score in the Secrets DVD Player Benchmark™, taking home top marks in more than twenty video decoding and processing tests. The entire review and benchmark results can be found here.

The DV-983H features an HDMI output, 7.1-channel audio and 1080p up-conversion, making standard DVDs look and sound their best on today's large screen, high resolution displays. The player incorporates Anchor Bay's leading video processing technology to generate a clearer, smoother, and true-to-life picture free of artifacts. There's a rich array of features for serious home theater enthusiasts, including aspect ratio conversion, multi-level zooming, special stretch modes, along with source-adaptive, motion-adaptive, and edge-adaptive techniques.

Reviewer Kris Deering stated, "As far as video processing goes, this player is nearly without equal. The ABT-102 solution [from Anchor Bay], combined with the custom Mediatek decoder gives the 983H a level of performance that we've only seen from designs costing a lot more than the 983H... The 983 passed every test we threw at it (and a few more that aren't part of our Benchmark) with flying colors."

"We're excited to receive this distinct honor from the highly respected voices at Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity," said Jason Liao, vice-president of product development at OPPO Digital. "It underscores our mission to develop innovative solutions that change the home theater experience, while pushing the envelope of price/performance."

While the Secrets DVD Player Benchmark™ focused on video processing performance, the DV-983H also offers a compelling audio experience with support for 7.1 channel audio with Dolby Digital Surround EX decoding, DTS Digital Surround, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pro-Logic II, and support for CD, Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio formats. The player features a USB 2.0 interface that lets users play audio and video from a USB device or enjoy a high-resolution photo slide on their large screen television.

The DV-983H is available today for an estimated retail price of $399, and can be ordered directly from OPPO Digital's web site and authorized resellers.
