About Disc Contents

BD Video
Enjoy Final Standard Profile (BD-ROM Profile ver. 1.1) functions
(Page 25), such as picture-in-picture.
The available functions differ depending on the disc.
This is a new function of BD-Video that plays the primary video
and secondary video simultaneously.
For instance, the function is capable of playing the original movie
as the primary video while playing video commentary from the film
director on a small screen as a secondary video.
Title, Chapter and Track
Blu-ray discs and DVDs are divided into "Titles" and "Chapters".
If the disc has more than one movie on it, each movie would be a
separate "Title". "Chapters", on the other hand, are subdivisions of
titles. (See Example 1.)
Audio CDs are divided into "Tracks". You can think of a "Track" as
one tune on an Audio CD. (See Example 2.)
Example 1: Blu-ray disc or DVD
