BD Touch 2.0: Blu-ray Application For BlackBerry Coming Soon

bdtouch Looks like NetBlender is planning on bringing a Blu-ray application for BlackBerry out soon. It will let you interact with your Blu-ray player over Wi-Fi from your BlackBerry. Blu-ray has promised extra features from the get-go but has failed to deliver. Until now all they have offered is better quality video which most people don’t even have a TV capable of viewing. Blu-ray live did promise to bring some extra features and BD Touch seems to be one of them.

NOTE: The main issue I see with BD Touch is that it is coming from a third party so studio’s and device makers will have to build their functionality into their players or their discs from what I can tell. You also would need a Profile 2.0 player which right now only includes the PS3… So this may be more of a dream.

Features include:

  • Transfer media from Blu-ray player to handheld device
  • Remote control – control movie playback using handheld device
  • Keyboard – use handheld device keyboard to enter data to player
  • Create games based on title that interact with handheld device
  • Multiple handheld devices can integrate with a single BD disc
  • simultaneously – multi-player games!

BD Touch enables movie studios to extend their content to a variety of entertainment platforms that compliment each other by taking advantage of each platform’s strengths.

  • Provides keyboard-like input device
  • Devices automatically connect
  • Two-way high speed data transfer
  • Self contained library for content creators to use in their BD-J Titles
  • Small footprint, so it works 100% of the time
  • Utilizes industry standards to continually grow as new BD technologies are introduced
  • Well-defined API allows developers and content creators to work independently to build robust interactive mobile applications

Easy Implementation and Connection

  • Easy to implement onto a BD-J Blu-ray Title or Blu-ray Player. BD Touch requires a BD-Live (Profile 2.0) Blu-ray Player, a wireless router on the network, a wi-fi enabled device supporting J2ME, and BD Touch installed!

  1. This brings the sort of core reusable functionality that BD 2.0 promised! Finally! Now studios have a tool do all these things without having to code it all themselves.
    Can’t wait to see what comes next.

  2. This looks like a cool app. Getting a PS3 soon, so I’m excited to try it out on my Bold.
