The flagship model is BDP-S780 that handles both 2D and 3D playback. BDP-S780 even converts 2D movies to 3D and has Super Bit Mapping and Chroma color processors to ensure better color reproduction and increased detailing, Sony says.

BDP-S780 embraces the internet with access to services such as Netflix, Amazon VOD, Hulu Plus, Pandora, YouTube and Slacker, as well as the new Sony video on demand service, Qriocity. The player also features DLNA with support for video, music and images.

The two smaller BDP-S580 and BDP-S480 players are 3D players and come equipped with DLNA. The cheaper BDP-S380 has no 3D or DLNA, but all four players feature USB.

Lastly, a Quick-start mode and Bravia Internet Video is mentioned for all models, and starting from the BDP-S480 you can use your iPhone or Android smartphone as a remote control.
