Blu-ray Disc Optical Disc Expertise
For more than 30 years, Pioneer has maintained a leading position in optical disc technology, most recently represented by its highly respected Blu-ray Disc products. This reputation is reinforced in its new BDP-V6000, one of the world’s first professional Blu-ray Disc players. The BDP-V6000 supports high definition Blu-ray Disc as well as standard definition DVD media playback in both NTSC and PAL formats to provide flexible, reliable playback of domestic and international customer content in demanding applications. Additionally, the player offers a host of features that make it ideal for seamless operation including:

Expanding High Definition Playback & Control
While Blu-ray Disc continues to deliver the best optical disc HD performance for professional A/V system integration, Pioneer expands its Pro Video line-up to provide the market with a powerful HD video file system product option, the HD-V9000.* Pioneer’s new HD-V9000 provides four advanced control options including, stand-alone operation, RS-232C control, IP addressable embedded web server and the HD-Pilot PC software program that offers integrators network access for remote content updates, playlist revisions, management of player settings and performance monitoring.

The new HD-V9000 is a solid state storage device utilizing SD/SDHC memory cards (SD Specification Ver. 2.00) to ensure improved reliability and flexibility for a variety of high end professional venues and applications. Since SD cards are removable, the new video file player has expandable storage capacity to maintain its advanced performance well into the future. Although product specifications have not yet been finalized, Pioneer anticipates that the HD-V9000 will provide professional users and system integrators with the following key features:

The Pioneer BDP-V6000 Professional Blu-ray Disc player is expected to begin shipping in September 2009 while the Pioneer HD-V9000 HD Professional HD Video player is expected to be available in the 1st quarter of 2010. Pricing for both units is to be announced.

Pioneer went on to introduce the first DVD writer for video authoring use in 1997, the first DVD recorder as a VCR replacement in 1999, the first DVD/CD writer for home computer users in 2001 and the first Blu-ray Disc writer in 2006.
