The future of home entertainment is here, and with the Sony BDP-S480 3D Blu-ray Disc Player you can enjoy all it has to offer. By that we're talking about full HD 1080p 3D visuals, network functionality with online streaming and privileged BD Live movie extras, and the capability to wirelessly stream your movies, photos and music from a PC. You can even kick back and control everything from your favorite spot with your iPad, iPhone, or compatible Android phone.

The Blu-ray format is capable of producing stunning, high definition images, as Blu-ray discs can hold up to five times as much as DVDs. As a full HD 1080p player, the BDP-S480 is capable of producing clear, crisp HD video on your HDTV. 24p True Cinema technology also enhances your cinema experience -- since most films were mastered at 24 frames per second, they're played back in the same way for high quality imaging. IP (interlaced to progressive) noise reduction cleans up images from your interlaced sources like DVDs, so they'll take on a more Blu-ray like picture quality.

But this player goes beyond disc-based media: you can stream internet content from Sony's proprietary BRAVIA platform and see movie extras like filmmaker chats and interactive quizzes when you pair it with an adapter and your home internet connection. Your new BDP-S480 also supports Gracenote Metadada Service, so you can see additional movie information or search across internet apps to find related entertainment. You can see movies from Netflix (subscription-based), create customized radio stations with Pandora and entertain yourself with internet videos from YouTube to transform your living room into a gateway for multimedia entertainment. Or, just stream from your PC to play your personal collection of music, movies and photos.

If you have Sony HomeShare network speakers, you can stream music wirelessly to other rooms of your house from a CD or services like Qriocity or Pandora with thanks to its PartyStreaming capability. For next generation A/V entertainment with 3D and full HD 1080p support as well as movie extras and online streaming, the BDP-S480 makes a superb choice. With a quick load and start time, you can start enjoying all this right away. To top it off, its high-gloss black finish offers a sleek presence next to your HDTV.

Home Entertainment: In 3D
Experience your favorite entertainment in the next dimension, 3D. This player is capable of delivering high resolution 3D video for realistic, immersive 3D imaging when used with a 3D HDTV or home theater projector, 3D ready cable and 3D glasses. The BDP-S480 has what you need to take your movies to the next level, and even supports 3D video streaming from a camcorder.
Full HD 1080p
In addition to support for 3D, this disc player is capable of producing crisp, clear full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) video -- far beyond that of the DVD format. That means you can take advantage of the ultra-high resolution of your HDTV and get all the detail encoded in your favorite Blu-ray films for the full visual experience.
24p True Cinema
Enjoy your movies in true cinematic quality with this feature. 24p True Cinema technology displays films at their intended 24 fps (frames per second), which is the way movies are shot and mastered.
Wi-Fi Ready
With the use of the Sony UWA-BR100 Wi-Fi adapter (sold separately) and an in-home broadband internet connection, you can take advantage of all the streaming capabilities of this exceptional player. After you connect them, the fun begins.
Internet Video Streaming
Using your broadband internet connection and a Wi-Fi adapter, you can instantly stream content from a huge selection of online movies, videos, TV programs, music and sports from applications like Netflix (subscription-based), YouTube, HuluPlus and Pandora.
IP Noise Reduction
While not all of us have a huge collection of Blu-ray discs, DVDs are still great for watching classic films and new releases alike. With this player, a built-in interlaced-to-progressive noise reduction function makes sure you get crisp, clear images on your HDTV when you're watching interlaced source materials like DVDs or internet videos.
Mobile Device Control
After downloading the free "media remote" app to your iPhone, iPad or compatible Android phone from the App Store or Android Marketplace, you're all set to control the BDP-S480 from your mobile device. Basic remote functions and a full Qwerty keyboard provide optimum convenience, and you can even search YouTube or Wikipedia for additional information about whatever movie you're watching at the click of a button.
Dual USB Ports
This unit features not one, but two USB ports, one in the front and one in the back. Using the front connection, you can hook up your digital camera or camcorder and display high definition video and pictures on your HDTV or projector. You can even display a slideshow with music from files on a CD or USB flash memory stick.
Gracenote ID Service
This metadata service gives you access to more information about the movies you are watching and allows search functionality across certain internet apps like YouTube and Qriocity, so you can enhance your entertainment experience with detailed information instantly.
Multi-Room Audio With PartyStreaming
Using your wireless 802.11 home network, you can wirelessly stream music throughout your home to compatible Sony HomeShare network speakers SA-NS400 and SA-NS300 (sold separately). When listening to content from a CD or services like Qriocity, Pandora, Slacker, vTuner or NPR, you can distribute it to any room of your house.
DLNA Certified
This disc player features a DLNA (Digital Living Alliance Network) certification -- meaning you can wirelessly connect to your PC to stream music, videos and photos to your new Blu-ray disc player.
BRAVIA Sync lets you enjoy the convenience of one remote control to operate and control all your compatible home entertainment devices. It utilizes the HDMI CEC function to easily turn on and control your compatible HDMI-connected components without having to use multiple remote controls
Quick Loading
Featuring a quick loading and quick starting tray, this disc player doesn't make you wait to watch your favorites. Just pop in your DVD or Blu-ray disc and start enjoying it right away.
Sleek Presence
In addition to its A/V offerings, this disc player features a slimline form that matches to look of your HDTV. The high-gloss black finish adds sophistication to any setup.
