Pioneer announced the BDP-140, Elite BDP-52FD and Elite BDP-53FD Blu-ray 3D players, each of which feature improved load times, wireless capability (AS-WL300 required), and audio and video streaming from Pandora, YouTube and NetFlix. Additional features include high definition audio and video playback from both USB and DLNA sources.

Built with a focus on high-quality audio and video reproduction, the new players offer pristine 1080p picture as well as 3D video output with the latest HDMI 1.4a, allowing for passage of the high data transfer rate required by the Blu-ray 3D format. Additionally, all three models can up convert standard definition video sources to 1080p resolution for optimum image processing that delivers clear, sharp images with reduced image noise. Additionally, 36-Bit Deep Color support with compatible content and displays features smooth gradation steps with more accurate color precision and adds to overall high-quality color reproduction.

Each model also supports the latest high-quality audio formats including DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD and Super Audio CD. Pioneer-exclusive technologies also improve the audio experience, a critical component to completing a fully immersive 3D experience. The Elite models offer Precision Quartz Lock System (PQLS) Bit-Stream Multi-channel for jitter-free reproduction of Blu-ray Disc, DVD-Video/Audio, Super Audio CD and CD content. When paired with a compatible Pioneer A/V receiver, PQLS precisely syncs the audio signals between the components for a true-to-life listening experience.

The Elite models feature superior build quality and Pioneer's new Sound Retriever Link and Stream Smoother Link features. These two new features detect the bit rate of both audio and video content and if necessary will send a command to a compatible Pioneer receiver to activate the Sound Retriever or Stream Smoother feature. The Sound Retriever feature enhances compressed audio files by restoring critical data lost during the compression process, while Stream Smoother enhances compressed video files to reduce compression noise and establish more detailed, finer images. The Stream Smoother technology is especially helpful with low bit-rate video sources originally intended for viewing on small screens such as smartphones.

The BDP-140 combines 3D playback with advanced networking features, superior audio performance, control with iPod/iPhone/iPad, Quick Response and support for SACD, BD-Live, MP3, DivX Plus HD, YouTube, and DLNA. Plus it will upconvert DVD video to near HD-quality.

The Elite BDP-52FD adds an RS-232 port for custom installation access and control.

The Elite BDP-53FD provides an extra HDMI output, Layered Chassis Construction and further enhances video quality by integrating the Marvell Qdeo video processor. Pioneer's QDEO implementation allows for greater picture quality adjustments and enhanced up-scaling of lower bit-rate video content.

For convenient control of the home theater system, Pioneer's free iControlAV2 App turns various smartphones and tablets into fully functioning remote controls for the new Blu-ray 3D players. When the players are connected via Ethernet to a wireless router, the app allows users to control basic functions of the players. Pioneer's iControlAV2 App is available for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and for select Android devices.
