Iron Man first on Blu-ray to support iPhones, iPods

updated 01:00 pm EDT, Fri October 3, 2008

Iron Man & iPhone/iPod

An upcoming Blu-ray disc will be the first of its sort to support iPhones and iPods, a report claims. The French release of Iron Man is expected to support NetBlender's BD Touch technology, which lets users interact with movies when both the player and the disc are compatible. Through a supporting iPhone app called Remote Haxey, French owners of Iron Man should be able to access trailers, play an original game, and use their handheld as a form of remote, much in the way that Apple's Remote utility controls iTunes.

BD Touch requires a Blu-ray player with support for BD Live, which in turn is a component of the Profile 2.0 standard. The French version of Iron Man is due on November 5th; it should improve on the recent American release in several other ways, including the ability to reposition subtitles and create their own edit.
