DVD Region Protection Coding (RPC):
The RPC feature is supported on DVD players and is used with DVD-video discs (such as movies). Currently,
the motionpicture industry has divided the worldinto different regions or zones thatcorrespond to the regional
markets intowhich the motion picture industry releasesmovies. Simply put, RPC codes are placedon movies
marketed throughout the world,based on the region of the world inwhich they are being sold. These
RPCcodes help control and prevent piratingof new movies into other motion pictureregions prior to their true
releasedates within those markets.
The DVD-ROM drive supports RPCphase II. In the RPC-2 mode, the localcode can be changed by users.
RPC-2is selected by default for the DVD-ROM drive.
You can change the region code up tofive times via an MPEG application.
Please contact your dealer or local SAMSUNG representative if you wish tochange the local code more than
fivetimes.
