About Discs

Blu-ray Disc

– with over 5 times the amount of content possible with
current DVDs, particularly well suited for high definition
feature films with extended levels of interactive features
Pristine picture quality with the capability for full high
definition 1920 x 1080p resolution
Best audio possible with uncompressed surround sound
(higher quality than even theatre audio)
Broadest industry support – ensuring more choice for
consumers in the marketplace
Hardware products will be backward compatible with
DVDs, allowing continued enjoyment of existing DVD
libraries.
Disc Durability – new breakthroughs in hard coating
technologies gives Blu-ray Discs the strongest resistance
to scratches and finger prints on a disc the same size as
existing CDs and DVDs (i.e. no cartridge is required).

BD/DVD Video operations and functions may be different from
the explanations in this manual and some operations may be
prohibited due to disc manufacturer's settings.

playback of a disc, follow the operating procedure displayed.
The audio component of a DVD video recorded at 96 kHz (Linear

not be possible depending on the disc.
"Finalise" refers to a recorder processing a recorded disc so that it
will play in other DVD players/recorders as well as this player. Only
