Pioneer BDP-440 overview

  • 1Description

If you have a collection of international movies and you don't want to settle for second-class picture quality or sound, the BDP-440 Blu-ray 3D Disc Player from Pioneer could be just what you're looking for. This disc player features playback for Blu-ray discs marked for any region in the world, and DVDs from any region when used with a multi-system TV. It's also compatible with worldwide voltage standards. So whether you're watching foreign releases of movies from the comfort of your couch, or you're venturing across the globe, you can still sit back to enjoy your collection.

Of course, the BDP-440 can provide crystal-clear full HD 1080p resolution, so it can output some of the most stunning imagery available today. If you have a few 3D Blu-ray discs, it can play those, too. Not to mention, it's great for rocking out, as well -- it also plays CDs, DVD-Audio discs and SACDs. The BDP-440 can process most Dolby and DTS audio formats usually found on Blu-ray discs or DVDs, including the lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. This disc player features an HDMI output, 2 USB ports, and 1 Ethernet jack.

But that's not all -- you can connect the BDP-440 to a broadband Internet connection using an optional Wi-Fi adapter (AS-WL300). This opens the door to network features like BD-Live, YouTube, Picasa, and playback from your PC or network media server (including FLAC audio files). And for those who have an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, there's an added perk for you. Simply download a free app from the App Store, and you can kick back and control everything from your favorite portable Apple device.

This disc player also features Pioneer's latest version of PQLS jitter reduction technology, as well as Stream Smoother Link and Sound Retreiver that are available when paired with a compatible Pioneer A/V receiver. With worldwide compatibility, easy connections to your other A/V components, and a glossy piano black finish, the BDP-440 makes a rewarding addition to any setup.

Please note! This disc player is not supported by a manufacturer warranty. To support it, B&H backs it with a 90-day warranty.

x.v.Color (also known as xvYCC or Extended-gamut YCC) is a color space that supports 1.8 times as many colors as the RGB color space. The result is that you see greens, reds and blues far deeper than previously possible
Deep Color (36-bit)
Deep Color ensures that all color transitions and gradients are reproduced with the highest level of precision. It enables increased contrast ratio, eliminates on-screen color banding (for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between colors) and can represent many times more shades of gray between black and white. So what you see is as natural and lifelike as possible
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
DTS-HD Master Audio is an extension to the original DTS audio format. It delivers up to 7.1 channels of sound at 24-bit depth resolution. DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is selected as an optional surround sound format for Blu-ray Disc with constant bit rates up to respectively 6Mbps and 3Mbps. It is supposed to be an alternative for DTS-HD Master Audio where disc space may not allow it
DTS-HD Master Audio Essential
DTS-HD Master Audio Essential provides the same quality high-end sound offered by DTS-HD Master Audio, and is a full Master Audio feature set for Blu-ray Disc, with the exception of DTS ES Matrix and NEO 6. Although DTS-HD Master Audio Essential does not currently support DTS | 96 /24, DTS ES, ES Matrix, and DTS NEO 6, for standard DVD discs, it offers DTS backwards compatibility, allowing you to enjoy DVDs in high quality DTS Digital Surround
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Digital Plus is a digital audio compression scheme developed specifically for Blu-ray Disc. It is a development of the earlier Dolby Digital system.

Extra features mean not only stunning soundtracks but also additional language tracks on one disc
