Pioneer’s latest range of 3D Blu-ray players will now feature iOS support, where they include the BDP-430, Elite BDP-41FD and BDP-43FD. Of course, another shared function would be HDMI 1.4a connectivity that delivers stereoscopic 3D capability alongside 36-bit color support – this happens only when the source and the TV support it. In addition, you will get Pioneer’s very own iControlAV iOS app which is available for free over at the App Store, letting iPhone and iPod users control their player over a local network – albeit requiring a firmware update beforehand. All three models will also support a new continuous mode which remembers just where the movie last stopped, playing from that position the next time around. With an Ethernet jack, you can also access Netflix, Pandora and YouTube without the need for a computer. Depending on the model of your choice, prices start from $299 and goes all the way to $499 – not too expensive even for Christmas, right?
