LG's new Blu-ray player is called BD690 and is packed with features, including a new Media Library feature that supports media files in a range of different formats.

LG highlights the Wi-Fi Direct function, which in essence means that BD690 can connect to other devices with Wi-Fi Direct without a wireless access point involved, for example flat panel TVs.

LG BD690 is a true network player. First and foremost it has DLNA support for video, music, and pictures through a wireless home network. Lastly, BD690 supports internet Apps and come pre-installed with Apps such as YouTube. More will be added later on, LG says.

The 250GB HDD is used for storing movies, music and images in a so-called Media Library that arranges all of your media files. BD690 obviously also supports 3D and smartphone remote controlling.

LG BD690 will be available in March-April 2011. The price has not been disclosed.
