About playback of discs recorded in
AVCHD format
This player can play AVCHD format discs.
TM
What is the AVCHD format?
*1
A high-definition specification which utilizes
1080 effective scanning lines and the interlace
system.
*2 A high-definition specification which utilizes
720 effective scanning lines and the progressive
system.
Additional Information
The AVCHD format is a high-definition digital
video camera format used to record SD (standard
definition) or HD (high definition) signals of either
the 1080i specification*1 or the 720p
specification*2 on DVDs, using efficient data
compression coding technology. The MPEG-4
AVC/H.264 format is adopted to compress video
data, and the Dolby Digital or Linear PCM system
is used to compress audio data. The MPEG-4 AVC/
H.264 format is capable of compressing images at
higher efficiency than that of the conventional
image compressing format. The MPEG-4 AVC/
H.264 format enables a high definition (HD) video
signal shot on a digital video camera recorder to be
recorded on DVD discs, in the same way as it would
be for a standard definition (SD) television signal.
b
• Some AVCHD format discs may not play,
depending on the recording condition.
• The AVCHD format disc will not play if it has not
been correctly finalized.

The Licenses for most software are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General
Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share
and change free software--to make sure the software is free for
all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the
Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other program
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software
Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser General
Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of
this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
68
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure
that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software
(and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source
code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software
or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you
can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the
rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get
the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the
software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make
certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for
this free software. If the software is modified by someone else
and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they
have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by
others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect
making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made
it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use
or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND
CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which
contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it
may be distributed under the terms of this General Public
License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such program
or work, and a “work based on the Program” means either the
Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is
to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either
verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without
limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is
addressed as “you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are
not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act
of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the
Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
on the Program (independent of having been made by running
the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program
does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the
Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium,
provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish
on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer
of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any
other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along
with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any
portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the
terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of
these conditions:
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and
separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do
not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate
works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a
whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of
the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose
permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and
thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is
to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the
Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does
not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based
on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you
also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machinereadable source code, which must be distributed under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than
your cost of physically performing source distribution, a
complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding
source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the
offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This
alternative is allowed only for noncommercial
distribution and only if you received the program in
object code or executable form with such an offer, in
accord with Subsection b above.)
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the
Program except as expressly provided under this License.
Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or
distribute the Program is void, and will automatically
terminate your rights under this License. However, parties
who have received copies, or rights, from you under this
License will not have their licenses terminated so long as
such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have
not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works.
These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this
License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the
Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate
your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and
conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
Additional Information
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent
notices stating that you changed the files and the date of
any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish,
that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the
Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at
no charge to all third parties under the terms of this
License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands
interactively when run, you must cause it, when started
running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way,
to print or display an announcement including an
appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no
warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and
that users may redistribute the program under these
conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive
but does not normally print such an announcement, your
work based on the Program is not required to print an
announcement.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work
for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete
source code means all the source code for all modules it
contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the
scripts used to control compilation and installation of the
executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed
(in either source or binary form) with the major components
(compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which
the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
the executable.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based
on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a
license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or
modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions.
You may not impose any further restrictions on the
recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this
License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of
patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to
patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by
court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the
conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the
conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License
and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence
you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a
patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of
the Program by all those who receive copies directly or
indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy
both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable
under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply
in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have
made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent
application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide
if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other
system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is
believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the
Program under this License may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that
distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the
limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or
new versions of the General Public License from time to
time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present
version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or
concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
Program specifies a version number of this License which
applies to it and “any later version”, you have the option of
following the terms and conditions either of that version or of
any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If
the Program does not specify a version number of this License,
you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write
to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the
Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions
for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free
software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software
generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF
CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE
PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE
STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS
AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM
“AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO
THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM
PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE
LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY
COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO
MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE
PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO
YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL,
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY
TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT
LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED
BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE
PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER
PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the
greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is
to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and
change under these terms.
To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at
least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is
found.
<one line to give the program’s name and an idea of what it
does.>

Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place - Suite 330, Boston,
MA 02111-1307, USA.
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and
paper mail.
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like
this when it starts in an interactive mode:
Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY;
for details type ‘show w’. This is free software, and you are
welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; type ‘show
c’ for details.
The hypothetical commands ‘show w’ and ‘show c’ should show
the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course,
the commands you use may be called something other than
‘show w’ and ‘show c’; they could even be mouse-clicks or
menu items--whatever suits your program.
You should also get your employer (if you work as a
programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a “copyright
disclaimer” for the program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter
the names:

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your
program into proprietary programs. If your program is a
subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit
linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what
you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General Public License
instead of this License.

LICENSE
Version 2.1, February 1999
Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of
this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also
counts as the successor of the GNU Library Public License,
version 2, hence the version number 2.1.]

Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General
Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share
and change free software--to make sure the software is free for
all its users.
This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of
the Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to
use it. You can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully
about whether this license or the ordinary General Public
License is the better strategy to use in any particular case, based
on the explanations below.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of
use, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free
software (and charge for this service if you wish); that you
receive source code or can get it if you want it; that you can
change the software and use pieces of it in new free programs;
and that you are informed that you can do these things.
For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
we gave you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can
get the source code. If you link other code with the library, you
must provide complete object files to the recipients, so that they
can relink them with the library after making changes to the
library and recompiling it. And you must show them these terms
so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright
the library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you
legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is
modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should
know that what they have is not the original version, so that the
original author's reputation will not be affected by problems that
might be introduced by others.
Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence
of any free program. We wish to make sure that a company
cannot effectively restrict the users of a free program by
obtaining a restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore,
we insist that any patent license obtained for a version of the
library must be consistent with the full freedom of use specified
in this license.
Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU
Lesser General Public License, applies to certain designated
libraries, and is quite different from the ordinary General Public
License. We use this license for certain libraries in order to
permit linking those libraries into non-free programs.
When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or
using a shared library, the combination of the two is legally
speaking a combined work, a derivative of the original library.
The ordinary General Public License therefore permits such
linking only if the entire combination fits its criteria of freedom.
The Lesser General Public License permits more lax criteria for
linking other code with the library.
We call this license the “Lesser” General Public License because
it does Less to protect the user’s freedom than the ordinary
General Public License. It also provides other free software
developers Less of an advantage over competing non-free
programs. These disadvantages are the reason we use the
ordinary General Public License for many libraries. However,
the Lesser license provides advantages in certain special
circumstances.
In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body
of free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C
Library in non-free programs enables many more people to use
the whole GNU operating system, as well as its variant, the
GNU/Linux operating system.
Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of
the users’ freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that
is linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal
to run that program using a modified version of the Library.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference
between a “work based on the library” and a “work that uses the
library”. The former contains code derived from the library,
whereas the latter must be combined with the library in order to
run.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND
CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
MODIFICATION
0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or
other program which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder or other authorized party saying it may be
distributed under the terms of this Lesser General Public
License (also called “this License”). Each licensee is
addressed as “you”.
Additional Information
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender
these rights. These restrictions translate to certain
responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the library or
if you modify it.
For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it
becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs
must be allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that
a free library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries.
In this case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to
free software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
A “library” means a collection of software functions and/or data
prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application
programs (which use some of those functions and data) to form
executables.
The “Library”, below, refers to any such software library or
work which has been distributed under these terms. A “work
based on the Library” means either the Library or any derivative
work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the
Library or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications
and/or translated straightforwardly into another language.
(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the
term “modification”.)
“Source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work
for making modifications to it. For a library, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus
any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the library.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are
not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act
of running a program using the Library is not restricted, and
output from such a program is covered only if its contents
constitute a work based on the Library (independent of the use
of the Library in a tool for writing it). Whether that is true
depends on what the Library does and what the program that
uses the Library does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the
Library’s complete source code as you receive it, in any
medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately
publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer
to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and
distribute a copy of this License along with the Library.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any
portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the
terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of
these conditions:
,continued
71
a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent
notices stating that you changed the files and the date of
any change.
c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at
no charge to all third parties under the terms of this
License.
d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or
a table of data to be supplied by an application program
that uses the facility, other than as an argument passed
when the facility is invoked, then you must make a good
faith effort to ensure that, in the event an application does
not supply such function or table, the facility still
operates, and performs whatever part of its purpose
remains meaningful.
(For example, a function in a library to compute square roots
has a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
application-supplied function or table used by this function
must be optional: if the application does not supply it, the
square root function must still compute square roots.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.
If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Library, and can be reasonably considered independent and
separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute
them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the
Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to
the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless
of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is
to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Library.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the
Library with the Library (or with a work based on the Library)
on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring
the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General
Public License instead of this License to a given copy of the
Library. To do this, you must alter all the notices that refer to
this License, so that they refer to the ordinary GNU General
Public License, version 2, instead of to this License. (If a
newer version than version 2 of the ordinary GNU General
Public License has appeared, then you can specify that
version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other change
in these notices.
Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies
to all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that
copy.
This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
the Library into a program that is not a library.
4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable
form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that
you accompany it with the complete corresponding machinereadable source code, which must be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily
used for software interchange.
If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy
the source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being
compiled or linked with it, is called a “work that uses the
Library”. Such a work, in isolation, is not a derivative work
of the Library, and therefore falls outside the scope of this
License.
72
However, linking a “work that uses the Library” with the Library
creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because
it contains portions of the Library), rather than a “work that uses
the library”. The executable is therefore covered by this License.
Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
When a “work that uses the Library” uses material from a header
file that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may
be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code
is not. Whether this is true is especially significant if the work
can be linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a
library. The threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined
by law.
If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
structure layouts and assessors, and small macros and small
inline functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the
object file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a
derivative work. (Executables containing this object code plus
portions of the Library will still fall under Section 6.)
Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section
6. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section
6, whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also
combine or link a “work that uses the Library” with the
Library to produce a work containing portions of the Library,
and distribute that work under terms of your choice, provided
that the terms permit modification of the work for the
customer’s own use and reverse engineering for debugging
such modifications.
You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that
the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
covered by this License. You must supply a copy of this License.
If the work during execution displays copyright notices, you
must include the copyright notice for the Library among them,
as well as a reference directing the user to the copy of this
License. Also, you must do one of these things:
a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
machine-readable source code for the Library including
whatever changes were used in the work (which must be
distributed under Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the
work is an executable linked with the Library, with the
complete machine-readable “work that uses the Library”,
as object code and/or source code, so that the user can
modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
executable containing the modified Library. (It is
understood that the user who changes the contents of
definitions files in the Library will not necessarily be able
to recompile the application to use the modified
definitions.)
b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with
the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at
run time a copy of the library already present on the user's
computer system, rather than copying library functions
into the executable, and (2) will operate properly with a
modified version of the library, if the user installs one, as
long as the modified version is interface-compatible with
the version that the work was made with.
c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
least three years, to give the same user the materials
specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
than the cost of performing this distribution.
d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to
copy from a designated place, offer equivalent access to
copy the above specified materials from the same place.
e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
For an executable, the required form of the “work that uses the
Library” must include any data and utility programs needed for
reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special
exception, the materials to be distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on)
of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
component itself accompanies the executable.
It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means
you cannot use both them and the Library together in an
executable that you distribute.
7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
Library side-by-side in a single library together with other
library facilities not covered by this License, and distribute
such a combined library, provided that the separate
distribution of the work based on the Library and of the other
library facilities is otherwise permitted, and provided that
you do these two things:
a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same
work based on the Library, uncombined with any other
library facilities. This must be distributed under the terms
of the Sections above.
b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the
fact that part of it is a work based on the Library, and
explaining where to find the accompanying uncombined
form of the same work.
9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have
not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Library or its derivative works.
These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this
License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Library
(or any work based on the Library), you indicate your
acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and
conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Library
or works based on it.
10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on
the Library), the recipient automatically receives a license
from the original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or
modify the Library subject to these terms and conditions.
You may not impose any further restrictions on the
recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with
this License.
11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of
patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to
patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by
court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the
conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the
conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License
and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence
you may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a
patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of
the Library by all those who receive copies directly or
indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy
both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
distribution of the Library.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable
under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply, and the section as a whole is intended to apply
in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have
made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent
application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide
if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other
system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the
Library under this License may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that
distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the
limitation as if written in the body of this License.
13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or
new versions of the Lesser General Public License from time
to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the
present version, but may differ in detail to address new
problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
Library specifies a version number of this License which applies
to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the
terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version
published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does
not specify a license version number, you may choose any
version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible
with these, write to the author to ask for permission. For
software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be
guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all
derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
Additional Information
8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
distribute the Library except as expressly provided under this
License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense,
link with, or distribute the Library is void, and will
automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from
you under this License will not have their licenses terminated
so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is
believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF
CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE
LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE
STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS
AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY
“AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO
THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE LIBRARY
PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
CORRECTION.
16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE
LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY
COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO
MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE
LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO
YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL,
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY
TO USE THE LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT
LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED
BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE
LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
SOFTWARE), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER
PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest
possible use to the public, we recommend making it free
software that everyone can redistribute and change. You can do
so by permitting redistribution under these terms (or,
alternatively, under the terms of the ordinary General Public
License).

To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library.
It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most
effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file
should have at least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where
the full notice is found.
6. Redistributions of any form whatsoever must retain the

BD-RE (page 59)
Glossary
AACS
“Advanced Access Content System” is a
specification for managing digital
entertainment contents stored on the next
generation of prerecorded and recorded
optical media. The specification enables
consumers to enjoy digital entertainment
content, including high-definition content.
AVCHD (page 61)
*1
A high definition specification that utilizes 1080
effective scanning lines and the interlace format.
*2 A high definition specification that utilizes 720
effective scanning lines and the progressive
format.
BD-J application
The BD-ROM format supports Java for
interactive functions.
“BD-J” offers content providers almost
unlimited functionality when creating
interactive BD-ROM titles.
BD-R (page 59)
BD-R (Blu-ray Disc Recordable) is a
recordable, write-once Blu-ray Disc,
available in the same capacities as the BD
below. Since contents can be recorded and
cannot be overwritten, a BD-R can be used to
archive valuable data or storing and
distributing video material.
BD-ROM (page 59)
BD-ROMs (Blu-ray Disc Read-Only
Memory) are commercially produced discs
and are available in the same capacities as the
BD below. Other than conventional movie
and video contents, these discs have
enhanced features such as interactive content,
menu operations using pop-up menus,
selection of subtitle display, and slideshow.
Although a BD-ROM may contain any form
of data, most BD-ROM discs will contain
movies in High Definition format, for
playback on Blu-ray Disc/DVD players.
Blu-ray Disc (BD) (page 59)
A disc format developed for recording/
playing high-definition (HD) video (for
HDTV, etc.), and for storing large amounts of
data. A single layer Blu-ray Disc holds up to
25 GB, and a dual-layer Blu-ray Disc holds
up to 50 GB of data.
Additional Information
The AVCHD format is a high definition
digital video camera format used to record
SD (standard definition) or HD (high
definition) signals of either the 1080i
specification*1 or the 720p specification*2 on
DVDs, using efficient data compression
coding technology. The MPEG-4 AVC/
H.264 format is adopted to compress video
data, and the Dolby Digital or Linear PCM is
used to compress audio data. The MPEG-4
AVC/H.264 format is capable of
compressing images at higher efficiency than
that of the conventional image compression
format. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format
enables a high definition (HD) video signal
shot on a digital video camera recorder to be
recorded on DVDs in the same way as for a
standard definition (SD) television signal.
BD-RE (Blu-ray Disc Rewritable) is a
recordable and rewritable Blu-ray Disc,
available in the same capacities as the BD
below. The re-recordable feature makes
extensive editing and time-shifting
applications possible.
Deep Color (page 44)
These are video signals for which the color
depth of signals passing through an HDMI
jack have been enhanced. With a Non-Deep
Color-compatible player, the number of
colors 1 pixel can express is 24 bits
(16,777,216 colors). However, with a Deep
Color-compatible player, 1 pixel can express
more bits, such as 36 bits. With more bits, the
gradation of color depth can be expressed
more finely, and continuous color changes
will be displayed more smoothly.
Dolby Digital Plus (page 63)
Developed as an extension to Dolby Digital,
the audio coding technology supports 7.1
multi-channel surround sound.
Dolby TrueHD (page 63)
Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding
technology that supports up to 8 channels of
multi-channel surround sound for the next
generation optical discs. The reproduced
sound is true to the original source bit-for-bit.
,continued

DTS-HD High Resolution Audio (page 63)
x.v.Color (page 44)
Developed as an extension to DTS Digital
Surround format. It supports a maximum
sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multichannel surround.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a
maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with
lossy compression (Lossy).
x.v.Color is a familiar term for the xvYCC
standard proposed by Sony.
xvYCC is an international standard for color
space in video.
This standard can express a wider color range
than the currently used broadcast standard.
24p True Cinema (page 43)
DTS-HD Master Audio (page 63)
DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum
transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps, and uses
lossless compression (Lossless), and DTSHD Master Audio corresponds to a maximum
sampling frequency of 192 kHz, and
maximum of 7.1ch.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface) (page 15)
HDMI is an interface that supports both video
and audio on a single digital connection. The
HDMI connection carries standard- to highdefinition video signals and multi-channel
audio signals to AV components such as
HDMI equipped TVs, in digital form without
degradation.
The HDMI specification supports HDCP
(High-bandwidth Digital Contents
Protection), a copy protection technology for
digital entertainment contents for HDMI.
LTH (Low to High) (page 60)
LTH is a recording system that supports
organic pigment type BD-R.
PhotoTV HD (page 38)
“PhotoTV HD” allows for a highly-detailed
pictures, and photo-like expression of subtle
textures and colors. By connecting Sony
“PhotoTV HD” compatible devices using an
HDMI cable, whole new world of photos can
be enjoyed in breathtaking Full HD quality.
For instance, the delicate texture of the
human skin, flowers, sand and waves can
now be displayed on a large screen in
beautiful photo-like quality.
Pop-up menu (page 32)
An enhanced menu operation available on
BD-ROMs. The pop-up menu appears when
POP UP/MENU is pressed during playback,
and can be operated while playback is in
progress.

Movies shot with a film camera consist of 24
frames per second.
Since conventional televisions (both CRT
and flat panels) display frames either at 1/60
or 1/50 second intervals, the 24 frames do not
appear at an even pace.
When connected to a TV with 24p
capabilities, the player displays each frame at
1/24 second intervals — the same interval
originally shot with the film camera, thus
faithfully reproducing the original cinema
image.
