BDR-S13UBK has achieved further evolution of fundamental performance in addition to improving writing speed and accuracy, improving dust resistance and quiet performance by maximizing Pioneer’s BD drive technology and know-how. This is the culmination of years of refinements in ease of use, reliability and stability for the long-loved Pioneer BD Drive. BDR-S13UBK also has performance features such as the Custom Eco function available through the Pioneer BDR-S13UBK Drive Utility. Custom Eco helps reduce the device’s power consumption. Pioneer’s excellence in optical disc technology delivers quiet operation, high reliability and superior quality. As to software, CyberLink Media Suite 10 for Windows OS is available for download free of charge.
The latest version of PureRead 4+ featuring unique algorithms
When read errors caused by scratches or fingerprints occur when importing (ripping) audio CDs, using this function allows for automatic detection of the disc state, adjustment of the read method using an original algorithm, and then re-reading of the disc. This minimizes error data interpolation.
Compatible with high-speed M-DISC writing for long-term data archiving
This product is compatible with M-DISC optical media for archiving, developed by US-based Millenniata Inc. It now also supports 6x writing on M-DISC (BD) SL and M-DISC (DVD).
High-quality front design
The simple design of smoked acrylic with a hairline finish from which blue light seems to emerge is accented with metallic lines, for an appearance that projects superior quality.
Unique honeycomb construction and cooling structure
This product features a unique honeycomb structure that increases the rigidity of the housing and minimizes unnecessary vibration. It also commutes airflow generated within the housing by the rotation of the disc, circulating it effectively to alleviate the temperature increase in the pickup and disc surface that occurs when the disc is rotated for extended periods or at high speed.
Custom Eco function helps reduce the drive’s power consumption
If the drive does not receive any commands (instructions for operation) from the PC for a specified period, this function will reduce the drive’s power consumption, such as by stopping the disc from rotating or reducing the disc rotation speed. Shortening this specified period will make the drive enter the power saving mode earlier.
6×1 BD-R Writing and BDXL™ Support
Up to 16×1 writing on BD-R SL discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs, and 8x writing on BD-R TL discs and BDXL support （BD-R XL：Triple Layer 100GB、BD-R XL：Quadruple Layer 128GB、BD-RE XL：Triple Layer 100GB).
Equipped with Pioneer’s Optimal Write Strategy Prediction Algorithm, which provides stable writing even on discs without write strategy
The drive automatically predicts the optimal write strategy even on discs without write strategy, which is then used for writing. The function provides stable writing.
Easy Setting function with Drive Utility
Equipped with an Easy Setting function to allow you to set one of four modes according to the intended use.
- Entertainment Mode is suitable for enjoying movies and music. It enhances quietness and makes the tray open quietly when playing back BD/DVD or music CDs.
- High-performance Mode, which emphasizes reading and writing speed
- Quality Mode, which emphasizes reading and writing quality
- Eco Mode, which reduces maximum power consumption
Peak Power Reducer
This power saving mode enables the drive to suppress power consumption at peak operation. It keeps stable operation in case of drop in power supply.
Disc Resonance Stabilizer improves writing accuracy
Disc Resonance Stabilizer utilizes airflow from disc rotation to reduce disc vibration and increase writing accuracy. High speed disc rotation causes disc warping due to resonant vibration. This results in unstable writing quality, especially in the outer areas. The Disc Resonance Stabilizer, designed projection on the top chassis, reduces such errors. By narrowing the interspace between the disc and the top panel, the air flow caused by the high rotation presses and prevents the disc from warping, thereby reducing reading and writing errors. With this feature, stable operation is maintained by handling the three patterns of disc resonant vibration that occur during operation.
High-performance sound dampening, dust resisting, and heat dissipating mechanisms
This product is built with Pioneer’s own honeycomb pattern, used in audio component products and the silence tray. Noise is reduced by controlling the air currents created by the spinning disc. This also controls local temperature rises in the pick-up and disc surface that occur during high-speed or extended disc rotation.
Improved belt for more stable tray loading operation
The belt used for the tray loading part has been improved to reduce the effect of dust and dirt on the tray loading operation. In our test, resistance to the impact of dust and dirt on tray loading is about 1.8 times that of the previous model.
Ultra HD Blu-ray compatible, with playback software included
Ultra HD Blu-ray offers 4K resolution as well as richer color tones, for more realistic images.
*Playback of Ultra HD Blu-ray requires a CPU that supports Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) technology. Intel SGX has been removed from Intel 11th generation and newer CPUs, and support for SGX may be removed on new versions of Intel drivers or utility programs such as Intel SGX and Intel Management Engine drivers and firmware in the future. Such changes could cause these platforms to lose support for Ultra HD Blu-ray movie disc playback.
