Blu-ray Disc Player
Player Features
Supports a Variety of Disc Types
Supports Blu-ray (BD-ROM, BD-RE, BD-R), DVD Video, DVD-RW/-R (V mode and finalized only) discs and Audio
CD.
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI reduces picture noise by allowing a pure digital video/audio signal path from the player to your TV.
DivX Certification
DivX® is a digital video format created by DivX, Inc. This is an official DivX Certified or DivX Ultra
Certified device that plays DivX video.
Blu-ray Disc Features
Blu-ray Discs can store 25 GB (single layer) or 50 GB (dual layer) on a single sided disc - about 5 to 10 times the
capacity of a DVD. Blu-ray Discs also support the highest quality HD video available in the industry - Large capacity
means no compromise on video quality. Furthermore, a Blu-ray Disc has the same familiar size and look as a DVD.
* 
The following Blu-ray Disc features are disc dependant and will vary.
Appearance and navigation of features will also vary from disc to disc.
Not all discs will have the features described below.
Video highlights
The BD-ROM format supports three highly advanced video codecs, including AVC, VC-1, and MPEG-2.
HD video resolutions are also available:
1920 x 1080 High Definition
1280 x 720 High Definition
For High-Definition Playback
To view high-definition contents on a Blu-ray Disc, an HDTV (High Definition Television) is required.
Some Blu-ray Discs may require using the
player's HDMI OUT to view high-definition
content. The ability to view high-definition content
on Blu-ray Discs may be limited depending on
the resolution of your TV.
Graphic planes
Two individual, full HD resolution (1920x1080)
video layers are available, on top of the HD video
layer.
One layer is assigned to video-related graphics
(like subtitles), and the other layer is assigned to
interactive elements, such as buttons or menus. Various wipes, fades and scroll effects may be available on both
layers.

Menu graphics
Support full color resolution graphics and animation, thereby greatly surpassing the capabilities of DVD-Video.
Unlike DVD, Menus can be accessed during video playback.

while the audio and video continues playing in the background.
Interactivity
Certain Blu-ray Discs may contain Animated menus and Trivia games.
User Browsable Slideshows
With Blu-ray Discs, you can browse through various still pictures while the audio remains playing.
Subtitles
Depending on what is contained on the Blu-ray Disc, you may be able to select different font styles, sizes and colors
for the subtitles. Subtitles may also be animated, scrolled or faded in and out.

HDMI Auto Detection Function
The player's video output will automatically change to HDMI output resolution when connecting an HDMI cable
while power is on (see page 39).
Depending on your TV, certain HDMI output resolutions may not work.
Please refer to the user's manual of your TV.
If an HDMI cable is connected from the player to a TV, the Blu-ray Disc Player’s output is set to HDMI output
resolution automatically within 10 seconds.
If Component and HDMI are both connected, HDMI mode is automatically selected. (See page 39)
When you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output
resolution will be automatically set to the highest provided by the TV.
If you connect a Samsung TV to the Blu-ray Disc Player using an HDMI cable, the player can be easily operated
using the TV remote control. (This is only available with Samsung TVs that support the Anynet+ feature.) (See
pages 40~41)
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
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.
Why does Samsung use HDMI?
Analog TVs require an analog video/audio signal. However, when playing a Blu-ray Disc/DVD, the data
transmitted to a TV is digital. Therefore either a digital-to-analog converter (in the Blu-ray Disc Player)
or an analog-to-digital converter (in the TV) is required. During this conversion, the picture quality is
degraded due to noise and signal loss. HDMI technology is superior because it requires no D/A
conversion and is a pure digital signal from the player to your TV.
What is the HDCP?
HDCP (High-band width Digital Content Protection) is a system for protecting Blu-ray Disc/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.
What is Anynet+?
Anynet+ is a convenient function that offers linked operation of this unit through Samsung TVs with the
Anynet+ feature.
- 
If your Samsung TV has an logo, then it supports the Anynet+ function.
-
If you turn on the player and insert a disc, the player will start playing the disc, and the TV will turn on
automatically and switch to HDMI mode.
- 
If you turn on the player and press the Play button with a disc already inserted,the TV will
immediately turn on and switch to HDMI mode.

changed to HDMI mode automatically (see page 39).
Depending on your TV, certain HDMI output resolutions may not work.
Please refer to the user's manual of your TV.
If an HDMI-DVI cable is plugged into the TV, the Blu-ray Disc Player’s output resolution is set to HDMI
automatically within 10 seconds.
If Component and HDMI are both connected, HDMI mode is automatically selected. (See page 39)
When you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output

You will enjoy high quality images with accurate color reproduction. Component video separates the picture
element into black and white(Y), blue(Pb), red(Pr) signals to present clear and clean images. (Audio signals are
delivered through the audio output.)
Using Component video cables (not included) , connect the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT terminals on the rear of
the Blu-ray Disc Player to the COMPONENT IN terminals of your TV.

the remote control and select COMPONENT as the external source of the TV.
Depending on the manufacturer, the component terminals on your TV may be marked “R-Y, B-Y, Y” or “Cr,
Cb, Y” instead of “Pr, Pb, Y”. The number and position of terminals may vary depending on the TV set. Please
refer to the user's manual of your TV.
You can select from a variety of resolution settings for Blu-ray Discs such as 1080i, 720p, 576p/480p and
576i/480i, depending on the disc type. (See page 39)
The actual resolution may differ from the setting in the SETUP menu if both Component and HDMI cables are
connected. The resolution may also be different depending on the disc. (See page 39)
In DVD playback, if both HDMI and Component jacks are connected and you select the Component mode, the
Display Setup menu will show the output resolution as 1080p. The resolution is actually 576i/480i.

If you have selected a LPCM soundtrack on a disc, the output will automatically be set to PCM.
Be sure to select the correct Digital Output or you will hear no sound or a loud noise.
If the HDMI device (Receiver, TV) is not compatible with compressed formats (Dolby digital, DTS), the audio
signal outputs as PCM.
Secondary and Effect audio will not be heard w ith regular DVDs.
Some Blu-ray Discs do not have Secondary and Effect audio.
This Digital Output setup does not effect the analog (L/R) audio or HDMI audio output to your TV. It effects the
optical and HDMI audio output when connected to a receiver.
When the player outputs HD audio bitstream(Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio) from the Optical jack to
an HDMI 1.3 receiver, only 2 channel PCM audio will be heard.
If you play MPEG audio soundtracks, audio signal outputs PCM regardless of Digital Ouptut Selections(PCM or
Bitstream).
PCM Down Sampling
On : Select this when the Amplifier connected to the player
is not 96KHz compatible. 96KHz signals will be down
converted to 48KHz
Off : Select this when the Amplifier connected to the player
is 96KHz compatible. Signals will be output without any
changes.
Even when PCM Down Sampling is set to Off, some discs will only output downsampled audio through the
optical digital outputs.
HDMI
If your TV is not compatible with compressed multi-channel formats (Dolby Digital, DTS), the unit may
output PCM 2ch downmixed audio even though you set Bitstream(either Re-encode or Audiophile) on
your setup menu.
If your TV is not compatible with PCM sampling rates over 48kHz, the unit may output 48kHz
downsampled PCM audio even though you set "PCM Down Sampling" as "Off".
Dynamic Compression
This is only active when a Dolby Digital signal is detected.
Off : You can enjoy the movie with the standard Dynamic
Range.
On : When Movie soundtracks are played at low volume or
from smaller speakers, the system can apply appropriate
compression to make low-level content more intelligible
and prevent dramatic passages from getting too loud.
