With straightforward connectivity to a local network and the internet, the two models open up new content and networking opportunities for users. In adition to an Ethernet port for regular wired integration, the two models can also be connected to a wireless home network via an optional Pioneer wireless LAN adapter.
Equipped with the latest HDMI specification (1.4a 3D), the BDP-LX54 and BDP-430 can be used in tandem with Pioneer's latest 3D capable AV receivers. Users can watch their favourite movies with great richness and detail thanks to each unit's ability to play Blu-ray Discs in 1080p full high-definition at a smooth, cinema-like 24 frames per second, and convert standard DVDs to near HD quality.
Both devices can also unlock additional movie-related content from the web with BD-Live including YouTube videos and playback of audio, video and photo content stored on a compatible network PC or media server.
Pioneer has also provided a free app that transforms a mobile device into a remote control.
When the Blu-ray Disc players are connected to an existing wireless router (via Ethernet or Wireless LAN), Pioneer's iControlAV app allows wireless control of playback and navigation functions. In addition, the iControlAV app integrates advanced and original control for many of Pioneer's recently announced AV receivers: SC-LX83, SC LX73, VSX-LX53, VSX-1020 and VSX-920.
