Message Text: Pioneer will release later this month in Japan the BDR-WFS05J, a portable BD /DVD/CD burner that can wirelessly stream Blu-ray disc video to a computer.

The drive features a dock with a wireless LAN connectivity, allowing users to connect to a LAN PC within the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n range (2.4HGz/5GHz) and stream BD video or burn data stored on the remote PC without any cable connection. Of course, a fast IEEE 802.11n (300Mbps) Wi-Fi connection is a better choice for a better streaming experience.

The drive can be directly to your LAN's router is either a "station mode" or an "Access Point Mode". During BD playback, the access point mode maintains a transmission at 70Mbps.

For CD or DVD video and audio transmission, the station mode can be used.

The drive's dock is powered by an AC adapter. Of course, the dock can be also used as a wireless NAS device, with an external USB HDD or a USB flash drive connected to the dock.

Beyond the wireless connectivity, the BDR-WFS05J shares the same specifications with Pioneer's BDR-XS05J BD burner. The slot-loading drive can write BD-R SL/DL and BD-R LtH discs at up to 6X, BDXL (TL/QL) at 4X, and BD-RE discs at 2X. For DVDs, the drive burns them at 8x, and CDs at 24X. Blu-ray discs are read at speeds of up to 6X, DVDs at 8X, and CDs at 24X. Bundled software include Cyberlink PowerDVD 10, PowerDirector 10, PowerProducer 5, Power2Go 7, InstantBurn 5, PowerBackup 2, LabelPrint 2, and MediaShow 6.

Compatible Windows XP/Vista/7/8 (OS support coming with a firmware update), , the drive will retail in Japan for about 25,000 yen ($252.2).
