HDMI is an interface that enables the digital transmission of video and audio data with just a single connector.
Using HDMI, the Blu-ray disc player transmits a digital video and audio signal and displays a vivid picture on a
TV having an HDMI input jack.
HDMI connection description
HDMI connector-Supports video and digital audio data (LPCM or Bitstream).
・ HDMI outputs only a pure digital signal to the TV.
・ If your TV does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection),random noise appears on the
screen.
What is the HDCP?
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)is a system for protecting BD/DVD content outputted via
HDMI from being copied. It provides a secure digital link between a video source(PC,DVD.etc)and a display
device (TV, projector. etc). Content is encrypted at the source device to prevent unauthorized copies from being
made.
