The world’s largest online store Amazon.com has started to take pre-orders on Samsung BD-C6900 Blu-ray player. This is the first time when a stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray player is available for pre-order.

Samsung BD-C6900 is fully compliant with Blu-ray 3D standard and also features Internet@TV suite with applications like Blockbuster, Netflix, Picasa, Pandora, VUDU, Twitter and so on. The player also sports integrated Wi-Fi and is fully-compliant with Blu-ray profile 2.0. Amazon.com charges $399 for the player.

The Blu-ray 3D specification calls for encoding 3D video using the Multiview Video Coding (MVC) codec, an extension to the ITU-T H.264 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) codec currently supported by all Blu-ray disc players. MPEG4-MVC compresses both left and right eye views with a typical 50% overhead compared to equivalent 2D content, according to BDA; and can provide full 1080p resolution backward compatibility with current 2D Blu-ray disc players. The specification also incorporates enhanced graphic features for 3D. These features provide a new experience for users, enabling navigation using 3D graphic menus and displaying 3D subtitles positioned in 3D video.

Blu-ray 3D technology requires a high-definition television with 120Hz or 240Hz refresh rate along with active shutter glasses. Earlier this week Samsung announced mass production of panels for stereoscopic 3D HDTVs.
