Based on Pioneer’s long-standing expertise as an innovator in optical disc technology, the latest Blu-ray Disc player features outstanding playability for almost any format or disc, even for scratched or soiled ones. Experience a spectacular view with 4K/24p upscaling, and convenience with Quick/Slow View with Audio. You can listen to WAV/FLAC/ALAC/DSD Hi-Res Audio files, watch YouTube videos with the “Send to TV” feature, or share smartphone videos, photos, apps, or games on TV via Miracast™. With the BDP-180 you always have the best sort of entertainment. The 4K upscaler scales full HD content from Blu-ray discs (1080/24p) for compatible televisions in high-resolution and ultra-HD, and creates breathtaking home cinema evenings. Watch your favourite content from your mobile devices on the television screen without any problems. With Wi-Fi Direct and Miracast you don’t even need a router to do this, the connection works simply, wirelessly and directly. Watch YouTube videos directly on your television screen via the BDP 180. Or use it as a fully-equipped network player and access videos and music in all of the most popular formats from local servers and computers, with support for high-resolution FLAC files, DSD and HD multi-channel sound. The 3D Blu-ray disc player also provides a USB front input, supports the reproduction of SACDs and, with a sound retriever link and a stream smoother link, guarantees better picture and sound quality together with compatible Pioneer multi-channel receivers. Via the “Quick view with sound” and “Slow view with sound” functions Blu-ray discs and DVD films can be played faster or slower, without the sound level, and thus the sound characteristics, being changed. The specially-developed, iControlAV5 app, which is available free of charge, also controls the BDP-180 in a very convenient and comprehensive manner via Smartphone or Tablet computer.
