Blu-ray Disc Features
Blu-ray Discs 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

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 colour resolution graphics and animation, thereby greatly surpassing the capabilities of DVD-Video.
Unlike DVD, Menus can be accessed during video playback.
Menu sounds
When you highlight or select a menu option on a disc, sounds can be heard such as button clicks or a voice-over
explaining the highlighted menu choice.
Multi-page/PopUp Menus
Unlike DVD-Video, playback is not interrupted each time a new menu
screen is accessed. Due to Blu-ray Disc's ability to preload data from
the disc without interrupting playback, a menu may consist of several
pages.
You can browse through the menu pages or select different menu
paths, 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
colours for the subtitles. Subtitles may also be animated, scrolled or faded in and out.
BD-LIVE
You can use a Blu-ray Disc supporting BD-LIVE through network connection to enjoy various contents provided
by the disc manufacturer.

Do not put a flower vase filled with water or any small metal objects on the Blu-ray Disc Player.
Be careful not to put your hand into the disc tray.
Do not place anything other than the disc in the disc tray.
Exterior interferences such as lightning and static electricity can affect the normal operation of this Blu-ray Disc
Player. If this occurs, turn the Blu-ray Disc Player off and on again with the POWER button, or disconnect and
then reconnect the AC power cord to the AC power outlet. The Blu-ray Disc Player will operate normally.
Be sure to remove the disc and turn off the Blu-ray Disc Player after use.

Do not keep under direct sunlight.
Keep in a cool ventilated area.
Store vertically.
Keep in a clean protection jacket.
If you move your Blu-ray Disc Player suddenly from a cold place to a warm place, condensation may
generate on the operating parts and lens and cause abnormal disc playback. If this occurs, wait for
two hours before connecting the plug to the power outlet. Then insert the disc and try to play back
again.

CONNECTIONS
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 42).
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 42)
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 automatically be 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 44~45)
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.
What is BD Wise?
BD Wise is Samsung's latest inter-connectivity feature.
- 
When you connect Samsung products with BD-Wise to each other via HDMI, the optimum
resolution will be set automatically.

SETUP
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 with 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 Output 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" to Off.
Dynamic Compression
This is only active when a Dolby Digital signal is detected.
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.
Off : You can enjoy the movie with the standard Dynamic
Range.
