Blu-ray Disc Overview: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a new
high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality
HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is
up to 40 mbps. Blu-ray Discs and players offer several advantages over the
standard DVD format:
- Better Picture Quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true
high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 1080/24p
resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't
provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD
player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed
picture, with deeper, richer colors.
- Better Sound Quality: In addition to the same
multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and
DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and
uncompressed 5.1 channel PCM.
- Greater Storage Capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's
superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of
Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of
data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray
Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or
23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel
audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with
- Backward Compatible: To ensure backward-compatibility
with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser
mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a
conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.
Note: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new
disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for
you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update
the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available
for downloading from the Internet.
DivX: The Samsung HT-D6730W supports DivX
(v.3.11/4.x/5.1/6.0)playback from DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs. The unit supports
DivX video with a resolution up to 1920 x 1080 pixels.
JPEG Playback: The Samsung integrated Blu-ray disc/receiver supports playback of JPEG still image files recorded onto a CD-R/RW,
DVD-or RW. JPEG images can be displayed as a slide show. Individual still images
can be zoomed (up to 4x) or rotated (clockwise/counter-clockwise).
MP3/WMA Playback: The HT-D6730W supports MP3 (up to 320 kbps)
and WMA (5-384 kbps) audio file playback from CD-R/RW and DVD-R/RW discs. The
player provides Playlist, Repeat (Track/All), and Shuffle playback functions for
MP3/WMA audio files.
Parental Lock: The Parental Lock function works in
conjunction with Blu-ray Disc/DVDs that have been assigned a rating which helps

up to 8 ratings levels on a disc. The rating levels are protected by a customer
user 4-digit password.

playing a DVD or Blu-ray Disc, and also 1080/24p when playing a compatible BD.
- Component Video Output: The Samsung Blu-ray
disc/receiver features a single component video output. When playing Blu-ray
the resolution can be set to 480i, 480p, 720p, or 1080i; when playing DVD
the resolution can be set to 480i or 480p.
- Composite Video Output: The Blu-ray

1080/24p signal, the built-in Blu-ray player can pass the signal in its native
form, without converting the video.
