Pioneer has entered the 3D Blu-ray Disc player market in Australia with two new models which will be available from late January.

The BDP-LX54 ($599) and BDP-430 ($499) offers 3D playback as well as advanced networking features.

Viewers can even download an app – iControlAV – to turn their iPhone into a remote control for the devices. 

  iControlAV can also control of many of Pioneer’s recent AV receivers including the SC-LX83, SC-LX-73, VSX-LX53, VSX-1020 and the VSX-920.

The BDP-LX54 and the BDP-430 connect to a home network either with a Ethernet cable connection or wirelessly, if your router is not near your viewing area, with an optional LAN (local area network) adaptor.

This connectivity opens up a gateway of extras through BD Live – a common feature on Blu-ray Discs – including interactive special features and games and even downloadable content.

Viewers also have access YouTube so they watch the latest and most popular videos right their on their display plus access videos, photos and audio contained on a network hard drive or computer

When connected to a 3D display, the Pioneer players provide full 1080p high definition in cinema-like 24 frames per second for life-like detail.

The Pioneer 3D Blu-ray players can also upscale standard definition DVD to near HD quality.
