Blu-Ray players can now be networked with iPhones and iPod Touches NetBlender recently released an SDK App for the iPhone and iPod touch that allows it to interface with BD Live and Wifi Enabled Blu-Ray Players. It is called BD Touch. When combined with a Blu-Ray authoring application, such as NetBlender’s DoStudio, the app allows an iPhone or iPod Touch to seamlessly connect to a Blu-Ray Player via Wifi, enabling the iPhone or iPod touch to act as a remote, among other things. You can add compressed version of the movie to your collection, control playback from the iPhone or iPod Touch and import certain menu content. Also provided on the iPhone is movie information from the internet, links to more information, a link to the movie in iTunes, and even the ability to play games and other special features directly on the iPhone.

Also, the app is not limited to Blu-Ray to iPhone/iPod Touch communication. You can send movies from your iTunes collection through the iPhone/iPod Touch to the Blu-Ray Player, out onto the big screen. Some compatible Blu-Ray producers include Phillips, Samsung, and Sony, including the Blu-Ray Drive in the Playstation 3.
