The BDP-S570 is a Blu-Ray Player from Sony that is set for a summertime release in 2010. The player aims to offer more than the fundamental functionality expected from a Blu-Ray player beyond only playing movies from discs in full High Definition resolutions. Online connectivity is a focus of the system and it comes ready to connect with a wireless adapter or ethernet connect. Once connected, videos can be streamed through the player without any external devices (such as a computer) from such services as Youtube or Netflix. The player utilizes up-scale technology to increase the quality of these videos, and also standard definition DVDs and CDs, closer to HD quality. Sony also included the option to use an iPhone/iPod as the remote control to the player with a downloadable app, in addition to the prepackaged remote that comes with the system.
