Support for 3D Video on Blu-ray
Immersive 3D video has been wowing audiences in cinemas around the world. Now you can enjoy the same incredible, you-can-almost-touch-it realism in the comfort of your own living room. With the BD-SP309 and a 3D-compatible TV, you can play 3D video on Blu-ray and enter a new dimension of movies, documentaries, and more.
Home Network Capability
The rear-side Ethernet port on the BD-SP309 lets you connect it to a home network and incorporate a huge array of content into your main entertainment system. The BD-SP309 works as a seamless and convenient conduit for videos, music, and photos stored on your PC or digital media server.
High-Definition Surround Sound from Dolby™ TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ Essential
The BD-SP309’s onboard decoders bring you the lossless, studio-master quality of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Essential for Blu-ray Disc. The player outputs these formats in pure bitstream form via HDMI, meaning nothing is lost from the original recording. If you don’t have an HDMI-compatible receiver, you can still enjoy playback of standard Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel content via the onboard optical digital output.
BD-Live Offers a More Interactive Experience
The BD-SP309’s BD-Live capabilities let you connect directly to the internet and access a variety of up-to-date content, such as movie previews, games, and live peer-to-peer interactions. The BD-Live specification also includes BonusView™ features, such as picture-in-picture. This function lets you view a small video in the corner of the screen while the main feature plays in the background.
Full High-Definition 1080p Video and Compatibility with AVCHD and DivX Plus™ HD
Blu-ray Disc delivers the most vivid and detailed video images ever seen in home theater. A disc played back on the BD-SP309 can be output in full high-definition 1080p at 24 frames per second—the native frame rate for movies. Meanwhile, the BD-SP309 offers compatibility with the increasingly popular DivX Plus HD (MKV) and AVCHD formats, which employ high-compression video codecs. Now you can enjoy big-screen playback of your high-definition movies and video clips recorded on a compatible camcorder.
1080p Upscaling of All DVD Sources
With the BD-SP309, standard DVD sources at various resolutions—576p, 720p, or 1080i—can be upscaled to 1080p for playback on a compatible high-definition display. Played back on a wide-screen display, your DVDs will look more detailed and cinematic than ever.
