So, you know how VIZIO was working on switching from being a discount player to wanting to be seen more as a high end manufacturer? Well, looks like they are looking to merge those two together with their VBR100 deck, which they announced today at . Here’s a look at the features of this 2-inch thick Blu-ray player:

  • Video outputs: HDMI (1.3), component, and composite
  • Audio outputs: 7.1 channel analog audio, coax and optical digital audio, and analog stereo (RCA)
  • Dimensions: 17 X 11 X 2”
  • Includes Remote Control (Oh rly??)

In addition, when watching a standard DVD, you can set the player to upconvert to 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, and it has on-board Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA decoders, and that can be output from the unit’s 7.1 analog outputs. You can pick this one up in April for $199.99.
