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 54 mbps. Blu-ray Disc 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, or 1080p 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 TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master
Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, 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 NAD T 567 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 Updates: 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. Occasionally, NAD may release updated firmware
for this unit that may add or improve the way a feature operates. These updates
are available free of charge. This unit is capable of checking the firmware
automatically when connected to the Internet via broadband connection.
Note: The tested NAD T 567 Blu-ray player contained
firmware version BD.8.62.320 (as of 1/12/2012). Visit theNAD website
for the latest firmware/software updates.
AVCHD: AVCHD (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) is a high definition digital
video format used to record high definition or standard definition video, using
an efficient data compression coding technology. The format is designed to
compress video and audio (Dolby Digital or Linear PCM) data, enabling a high
definition video signal shot on a digital camcorder and recorded on DVD disc
to be played back on the T 567. The player supports AVCHD playback from DVD-R/RW
and DVD+R/RW discs.
Still-Image Playback: The T 567 will also playback JPEG, GIF,
and PNG still image files written to a BD-R/RE, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, or CD-R/RW
disc. The total number of files and folders should not exceed 2,000.
DivX HD File Playback: The T 567 supports playback of DivX
HD video files recorded on BD-R/RE, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs. This
unit supports DivX HD image sizes up to 1920 x 1080 and up to 2,000 files/folders.
MP3/WMA/AAC Playback: The T 567 can play MP3/WMA/AAC music
files recorded on to BD-R/RE, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and CD-R/RW discs. This unit
will support up to 2,000 MP3/WMA/AAC music files/folders per disc.
12-Bit/148MHz Video DAC: he NAD T 567 Blu-ray disc player
employs a 12-bit/148MHz video DAC for high-quality, high-definition video.
Video Outputs: The NAD T 567 Blu-ray disc player is fitted
with two video outputs; HDMI & Component.
- HDMI Output: The NAD T 567 features a single HDMI output for
HD video and audio signal transmission. The HDMI output supports 480p, 720p, 1080i,
1080p and 1080p/24 resolutions. Standard definition DVD signals (480p) are scaled
and output at the specified resolution via HDMI.
- Component Video Output: The T 567 features one component video
output, capable of 480i, 480p, 720p, or 1080i output for unprotected media. The
component video output only supports 480i/480p for protected media. Standard definition DVD signals
(480p) cannot be scaled to 720p or 1080i and output via component video.
Note: This Blu-ray player does not contain a composite video or
1080/24p Output: The T 567 includes a 1080/24p HDMI output
to faithfully reproduce film images recorded on a Blu-ray disc. When connected
to a 1080/24p display, you can enjoy remarkable video performance of Blu-ray
which brings out the full character of film material.
HDMI Upscaling: The 480p resolution of a standard DVD can be scaled
to 720p, 1080i, or 1080p and output via the HDMI jack. The player's component
video output jack does not support upscaling.
3D-Ready: The NAD T 567 lets you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc
movies in full HD 1080p.
Note: 3D viewing requires compatible 3D content,
3D-ready HDTV, 3D emitter & glasses, and a high-speed HDMI cable (supporting
at least 10.2 Gbps) connection.
xvYCC: xvYCC color space reproduces a greater range of color
than before, showing almost all of the colors that the human eye can detect.
Deep Color: The HDMI output supports Deep Color, increasing
the number of bits available for transmission, meaning more colors. This results
in much greater color fidelity, smooth tonal transitions, and ultra-fine gradations
between colors. It also enables many times more shades of gray, for higher contrast
TV Aspect: Set the aspect ratio to match the connected
- 16:9 Original: a 4:3 signal is displayed
in its original form on a 16:9 TV with black bars on the sides
- 16:9 Full: a 4:3 signal is linearly stretched
to fill the 16:9 screen
- 4:3 Letter Box: a 16:9 signal is displayed
in its original form on a 4:3 TV with black bars on the top and
- 4:3 Pan&Scan: the 16:9 signal fills a
4:3 screen, automatically shifting horizontally with the action;
the portion of the picture that doesn't fit isn't displayed
Last Scene Memory: This function allows you to resume playback
from the point at which the last video disc was stopped, even if the power to unit
is turned off or the disc is removed. Last Scene Memory function for a previous
disc is erased once a different disc is played.
Picture Mode: Various settings can be manually adjusted in
the Picture Mode - Contrast, Brightness, Color, Sharpness, and Noise Reduction.
Zoom: During playback (or pause) the picture can be enlarged
using the Zoom feature; the enlarged window is moved using the cursor buttons.
Digital Audio Formats: The Blu-ray player's HDMI output is
capable of multi-channel bitstream (Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD,
Dolby Digital, and DTS) and multi-channel LPCM output. The optical and coaxial
digital outputs pass either Dolby Digital or DTS bitstream, or 2-channel PCM.
The T 567 can also decode the digital soundtrack internally (Dolby Digital Plus,
Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, Dolby Digital, or DTS) and pass it as a multi-channel PCM
signal through the HDMI output.
