Pioneer Announces a New Elite 3D Blu-ray Player

Posted Mon Sep 17, 2012 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The new 3D player packs Qdeo video processing and playback for DVD-Audio and SACDs.

The BDP-62FD is the latest Blu-ray player to join Pioneer's Elite line, and it comes equipped with a few features that earn it the title. For starters, Pioneer has given their new player Marvell Qdeo video processing, which will give you better video quality whether you're watching a Blu-ray or upscaling from SD.

Pioneer's new Blu-ray player has a few connectivity options as well. If you're the kind of person that has both a projector and a TV set up, you'll be happy to know that dual HDMI outputs are included to accommodate. The player also sports an Ethernet port for streaming of Netflix, Pandora and YouTube. Unfortunately, there's no Wi-Fi built in, so you'll have to pick up the adapter separately if you'd like to go wireless.

Finally, the BDP-62FD is equipped with different control options, including IP, RS-232, and via the iControlAV2012 smartphone app.

You'll be able to pick up the BDP-62FD later this month at a price of $399.
