BD Touch Connects iPhone to Blu-ray

Posted April 10, 2008 at 4:16pm by iClarified
NetBlenders BD Touch technology enables two-way communication with Apples iPhone and iPod Touch. BD Touch uses the BD Live network connection built into Blu-ray players and the WiFi connection on the iPhone to connect the devices.

The sophisticated UI of the iPhone enables unprecedented user interaction when compared to any other handheld device. BD Touch applications can take advantage of the iPhone's geo location features, 3D sensors and QWERTY keyboard. Video, audio, text, and player commands can be transferred via the connection.

Some implementations of BD Touch will include:
● Pushing digital copies of movies to an iPhone from the Blu-ray disc menu.
● Automatically cataloguing a viewer's Blu-ray disc collection and providing movie suggestions
● Updating and managing a viewer's rental queue
● Displaying trivia and extra information about a movie in sync with the movie's playback
● Turning existing Blu-ray discs into games that use the iPhone as the game controller
● Viewing fan-created content in sync with the disc
