The BD-P1500 will support all the latest Blu-ray technologies including BD Java, Profile 1.1 and BD-Live straight out of the box.

Resolutions up to 1080p 24 Fs / 60 Fs will be supported while piped through an HDMI 1.3 port with CEC for expanded color delivery and easy home theater control. Upconversion of DVDs will also go up to 1080p resolution.

On the audio side, Samsung is building in support for Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD, with DTS-HD coming via a firmware update later in the year.
