That can be controlled from your phone
Pioneer has shipped its first 3D-capable Blu-ray players which can be controlled from your phone. The BDP-430 and two Pioneer Elite models, the BDP-41FD and BDP-43FD are all shipping with HDMI 1.4a output and support for the Blu-ray 3D format.

Like many blu-ray players the gear will upconvert video from standard definition sources to 1080p with Pioneer’s PureCinema image processing technology. What is cool is that all three can be connected to wired or wireless home networks to access online content, and can be controlled from any wifi device such as a phone.

All three models feature a “Continue Mode” feature that enables users to pick up a Blu-ray movie right where they left off and an optional AS-WL200 wireless adapter enables folks to tap into home Wi-Fi networks to access content elsewhere on the network, streaming services like Pandora, YouTube, and Netflix, along with firmware updates and BD-Live content. For Pioneer fans, the models also feature Pioneer’s Precision Quartz Lock System for syncing audio between Pioneer components, like an A/V receiver.

The BDP-430 is available for a suggested price of $299. The BDP-41FD, which has an RS-232 port for integration with home automation systems, will hit the shops for $399. The BDP43FD has an “armoured” chassis and better components for a suggested price of $499.
