First 1080p DVD player?

Seems like the Marantz DV9600 DVD player is the first to deliver 1080p high definition video signal. There are a few HD projectors on the market that could make a good team with this one like Fujitsu LPF-D711 ( The Marantz player also converts the DVD standard images into 720p and 1080(i or p; doesn't say) HD quality which is pretty interesting.
Only 2100$ (ouch!)
