The Blu-ray Disc players feature three separate noise reduction circuits for enhanced video performance:

- Mosquito Noise Reduction: reduces random noise along the outline of the images
The BDP-450 features PQLS Bit-stream, the latest version of Pioneer's PQLS jitter reduction technology. By HDMI connection with a compatible AV receiver, the Blu-ray Disc player can transmit not only CD audio and DVD/Blu-ray Disc multichannel sound, but also linear PCM, and bit-stream signals with minimum quality loss, to reproduce realistic sound.*
* Available by connecting with a compatible Pioneer AV receiver.
With dual HDMI output terminals, the audio and video signals can be separately transferred via the main and sub HDMI terminals. The isolation of the audio signals creates pure sound free of interference.
The Blu-ray Disc player work both as a DMP (digital media player) and a DMR (digital media renderer). With the DMP function, it lets you search content in a DMS for playback on the Blu-ray Disc player. If you use it as a DMR, you can stream DMS content for playback on the Bluray Disc player. For example, you can stream a movie from your smartphone functioning as a M-DMS (Mobile DMS), and play it on the Blu-ray Disc player as a DMR.
Files protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) cannot be played. Only play/pause can be controlled during DMR operation. AVCHD contents cannot be played via LAN.
