Linear PCM Sound
Skip (page 28)
Linear PCM is a signal recording format used for Audio CDs
and on some DVD and Blu-ray discs. The sound on Audio
CDs is recorded at 44.1 kHz with 16 bits. (Sound is recorded
between 48 kHz with 16 bits and 96 kHz with 24 bits on DVD
video discs and between 48 kHz with 16 bits and 192 kHz
with 24 bits on BD video discs.)
This returns to the start of the chapter (or track) being played,
or skips to the next chapter (or track).
MPEG-2
Subtitles (pages 29, 32, 33)
These are the lines of text appearing at the bottom of the
screen which translate or transcribe the dialogue. They are
recorded on many DVD and BD video discs.
MPEG-2 (Moving Picture Experts Group phase 2) is one of
the video data compression schemes, which is adopted for
DVD videos and digital broadcasts worldwide. Some Blu-ray
Discs also use high bitrate MPEG-2.
Time number
Multi Angle (pages 30, 32)
Title number (pages 32, 33)
This is a feature of DVD and BD video discs. In some discs,
the same scene is shot from different angles, and these are
stored in a single disc so you can enjoy playback from each
angle. (This function can be enjoyed if the disc is recorded
with multiple angles.)
These numbers are recorded on DVD and Blu-ray discs.
When a disc contains two or more movies, these movies are
numbered as title 1, title 2, etc.
Multi Audio
In a BD/DVD video, this is the menu for selecting things like
the chapter to be played back and the subtitle language. In
some DVD videos, the top menu may be called the “Title
Menu”.
This is a feature of DVD and BD video discs. This function
makes it possible to record different audio tracks for the
same video, so you can enhance your enjoyment by
switching the audio. (You can enjoy this function with discs
recorded with multiple audio tracks.)

Pop-up menu (page 25)
An enhanced menu operation available on BD video discs.
The pop-up menu appears when POP-UP MENU is pressed
during playback, and can be operated while playback is in
progress.
Progressive format
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately shows
every other line of an image (field) to create one frame, the
Progressive format shows the entire image at once as a
single frame. This means that while the Interlace format can
show 30 frames/60 fields in one second, the Progressive
format can show 60 frames in one second. The overall
picture quality increases and still images, text, and horizontal
lines appear sharper.
Region code (page 7)
Code identifying a geographic region of compatibility for a
BD/DVD.
Remote control code (page 21)
This is the type of the remote control signal for operating
