Disc Compatibility: The Samsung HW-D7000 integrated AV
receiver/Blu-ray player is compatible with many disc types.
|Blu-ray||BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE|
|DVD||DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R,
|CD||CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW|
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 HW-D7000 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 AV receiver/Blu-ray
player 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 HW-D7000 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
you control the types of Blu-ray Discs/DVDs that your family watches. There are
up to 8 ratings levels on a disc. The rating levels are protected by a customer
user 4-digit password.
Video Inputs/Outputs: The Samsung HW-D7000 is

4 composite video inputs (3 rear/1 front) and 1 composite video output. The
composite video output resolution is always 480i when playing Blu-ray Disc
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 player can pass the signal in its native
form, without converting the video.
Video Up-conversion: When connected to your TV using the
HDMI output, the HW-D7000 scales the output of a standard DVD signal or a
connected analog device to HD 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. The unit also supports 480p
and 480i output if your television is not HD-compatible.
