Handling discs


Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.

Do not scratch the disc’s signal surface or let it get dirty.

Do not load more than one disc into the player at a time.

Do not glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ballpoint pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc.

Storing discs

Always store discs in their cases, and place the cases vertically, avoiding places exposed to high temperature or humidity, direct sunlight or extremely low temperatures.

Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc.

Cleaning discs

It may not be possible to play the disc if there are fingerprints or dust on it. In this case, using a cleaning cloth, etc., to wipe the disc gently from the center toward the outer edge. Do not use a dirty cleaning cloth.

Aspect ratio

The ratio of a TV screen’s width to its height. Conventional TVs have an aspect ratio of 4:3, while high definition (HD) and widescreen TVs have an aspect ratio of 16:9.

Audio language

Multiple audio tracks, for example the original sound and the dubbed sound, can be recorded on BD-ROM or DVD-Video discs. Up to 32 languages (32 audio tracks) can be recorded on BD-ROM discs, up to 8 languages (8 audio tracks) on DVD-Video discs, so you can select the desired language when watching the disc.

AVCHD (Advanced Video Codec High


The AVCHD is a high definition (HD) digital video camera recorder format recording high-definition onto certain media by using highly efficient codec technologies.


With BD-ROMs, it is possible to use Java applications to create highly interactive titles, for example including games.


Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals. Also do not use record spray or antistatic agents.

For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth.

Specially shaped discs

Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexagonal, etc.) cannot be used on this player. Never use such discs, as they will damage the player.

Condensation on discs

If the disc is moved suddenly from a cold place into a warm room (in winter, for example), water droplets (condensation) may form on the disc surface. Discs will not play properly if there is condensation on them. Carefully wipe off the water droplets from the disc surface before using the disc.

Of the BD format, the Audio Visual Format Specifications for HD digital broadcast recording is referred to as BDAV on this player and in this operating instructions.


Of the BD format, the Audio Visual Format Specifications designed for pre-packaged high definition (HD) movie contents is referred to as BDMV on this player and in this operating instructions.

Component video output

This video output terminal provides clearer pictures when connected to a TV equipped with component inputs. Component video signals consist of three signals, Y, P B and P R .

Composite video output

Signals mixing the luminance signal (Y) and the color signal (C) so they can be transferred on a single cord are output from this terminal.

Deep Color

This is one of the capabilities of HDMI™. The players supporting

Deep Color can transmit a video signal with a color bit depth of greater than 8 bits per color component. Subtle color gradations can be reproduced when connected to a TV that supports Deep



DivX is a media technology developed by DivX, Inc. DivX media files include moving picture data.

Dolby Digital

Dolby Digital is an audio format to record the sound in up to 5.1 channels with a fraction of the amount of data as compared to linear

PCM audio signals.

Dolby Digital Plus

Dolby Digital Plus is an audio format for high-definition media. Built on Dolby Digital, it combines the efficiency and flexibility to provide high quality multi-channel audio. With BD-ROMs, up to 7.1 channels of digital sound can be recorded.

Dolby TrueHD

Dolby TrueHD is an audio format using lossless coding. With BD-

ROMs, up to 8 channels can be recorded at 96 kHz/24 bits, or up to

6 channels at 192 kHz/24 bits.


A technology for protecting copyrighted digital data. Digitized movies, images and music retain the same quality even when they are copied or transferred repeatedly. DRM is a technology for restricting the distribution or playback of such digital data without the authorization of the copyright holder.

DTS Digital Surround

DTS Digital Surround is an audio format to record 48 kHz/24 bits audio signals in 5.1 channels.

DTS-HD High Resolution Audio

DTS-HD High Resolution Audio is an audio format using lossy coding. It can record 7.1 channels at 96 kHz/24 bits.

DTS-HD Master Audio

DTS-HD Master Audio is an audio format using lossless coding.

With BD-ROMs, 7.1 channels can be recorded at 96 kHz/24 bits, or

5.1 channels at 192 kHz/24 bits.

Dynamic range

This refers to the difference between the maximum and minimum level of the sound. The dynamic range is measured in units of decibels (dB).

When the dynamic range is compressed (Audio DRC), the minimum signal level is increased and the maximum signal level decreased.

This way, the volume of loud sounds such as explosions is reduced, while the sounds with a low level, such as human voices, are easier to listen to.

Frames and fields

A frame is the unit for one of the still pictures which compose motion pictures. One frame consists of a picture of odd lines and a picture of even lines called fields in video signal with interlaced scan method (576i, 1080i, etc.).

HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content


A technology for protecting copyrights that encrypts digital video signals.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia


A digital interface standard for next-generation TVs expanding the

DVI (Digital Video Interface) terminal used for example for computer displays. It allows transfer of non-compressed digital video and audio signals (Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, DTS-

HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTS Digital

Surround, MPEG-2 AAC, linear PCM, etc.) with a single connector.

Interactive audio

The audio signals recorded in the titles of BD-ROMs. They include for example the clicking sound made when the menu screen is operated.

Interlaced scan

With this method, one picture is displayed by scanning it twice. The odd lines are displayed in the first pass, the even lines are displayed in the second, to form a single picture (frame). Interlaced scan is indicated in this player and operating instructions by an “i” after the resolution value (for example, 576i).

Linear PCM

This is referred as the audio signals that are not compressed, frequently used for DVD-Video discs containing musicals or music concerts. This can also be indicated “48 kHz/16 bit”, “96 kHz”, etc.

MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group)

The name of a family of standards used to encode video and audio signals in a digital compressed format. The video encoding standards include MPEG-1 Video, MPEG-2 Video, MPEG-4 Visual,

MPEG-4 AVC, etc. The audio encoding standards include MPEG-1

Audio, MPEG-2 Audio, MPEG-2 AAC, etc.

Multi angle

Up to 9 camera angles can be recorded simultaneously on BD-ROM or DVD-Video discs, letting you watch the same scene from different angles.

Parental Lock

Playback of the contents of some BD-ROM or DVD-Video discs can be restricted, for example for discs containing scenes of violence.

With BD-ROM discs, an age restriction can be set to restrict playback. Playing DVD-Video title can be restricted by setting the parental lock level.

Picture-in-Picture (P-in-P)

This is a function for superimposing a sub video on the main video.

Some BD-ROMs include secondary video, which can be superimposed on the primary video.

Progressive scan

With this method, one picture is consisted of a single picture, without dividing it in two pictures. Progressive scan provides clear pictures with no flicker, in particular for still pictures that contain much text, graphics, or horizontal lines. Progressive scan is indicated in this player and operating instructions by a “p” after the resolution value (for example, 576p).

Region number

A number assigned to Blu-ray Disc Players, BD-ROM and DVD-

Video discs according to the region in which they are sold. A disc can be played if the region numbers indicated on the disc include the number set for the player or if “ALL” is indicated.

S-Video output

An output terminal for transmitting separate luminance (Y) and color (C) signals over a single cord. It offers clearer pictures than the composite video output.

Secondary audio

Some BD-ROMs include sub audio streams mixed with the main audio. These sub audio streams are called “secondary audio”. On some discs this secondary audio is recorded as the audio for the secondary video.

Secondary video

Some BD-ROMs include sub videos superimposed on the main videos using the Picture-in-Picture function. These sub videos are called “secondary video”.

Subtitle language

This refers to the language of the subtitles often used on movies. Up to 255 languages (255 types of subtitles) can be recorded on BD-

ROM discs, 32 languages (32 types of subtitles) on DVD-Video discs, so you can select the desired subtitle when watching the disc.
