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 7.1 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: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on
your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will
not play. The HT-E5400 is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc
uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized
recording of copyrighted material.
Firmware/Software Upgrade: 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. The unit's Software Upgrade menu allows you
to upgrade the system's software & firmware for these performance improvements &
additional services. You can upgrade in four ways; Internet, USB, Disc, or
Note: The tested Samsung Blu-ray Home Theater System contained
firmware version 2011/12/23_001002 (as of 3/29/2012). There was an immediate
firmware version update available (2011/12/23_001005). Visit the

approximately 12.5 seconds, and takes approximately 26.5 seconds for a Blu-ray
disc to begin playback.
Note: The Start Up/Play Back Time tests were started
with the Blu-ray player initially turned off & in standby mode. The Start Up
Time test was stopped when the player's Home Menu screen appeared. The Play
Back Time test was stopped when the Blu-ray disc began playback.
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.
HDMI ver.1.4: The Samsung Blu-ray Home Theater System is
equipped with single HDMI (v.1.4) output and dual HDMI (v.1.4) inputs. HDMI
simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio all in one cable.
- HDMI Out: The HDMI output resolution can be set to
480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p when playing a DVD or Blu-ray Disc; also
1080/24p when playing a compatible BD. The player's HDMI output supports 3D
- Dual HDMI Inputs: The two HDMI inputs on the rear-panel
of the Blu-ray player let you increase the number of HDMI-compatible devices
you can connect to your TV. The player will pass video (up to 1080P) and
audio (up to 7.1ch) from the HDMI 1/2 inputs to the HDMI output.
Composite Video Output: The HT-E5400 also features a single composite video output. The composite
video output resolution is always 480i when playing Blu-ray Disc or DVD.
1080/24p: Movies are typically filmed at 24 frames per
second and some Blu-ray Discs use the same frame rate. If your TV will accept a
1080/24p signal, the built-in Blu-ray Home Theater System can pass the signal in its native
form, without converting the video.
DVD Upscaling via HDMI: When connected to your TV using the
HDMI output, the HT-E5400 scales the output of a standard DVD signal (480i) to 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. The unit also supports 480p
and 480i output if your television is not HD-compatible.

- 2D-3D: When you play 2D video content, you can convert 2D into 3D
video. Two-dimensional 1080p video content output as 1080p 3D. All other 2D
video signals are output at 720p 3D. Smart Hub 2D content cannot be
converted to 3D.

116") of your TV, so that the Blu-ray Home Theater System can adjust the image according to the
screen size and display an optimal 3D image.
TV Aspect: You can adjust the video output of the HT-E5400
to match the screen-type of your television. You can choose from 4:3 Letter-Box,
