BD-ROM is a next generation optical disc format in the HD era.
Featuring massive storage capacity of 25 to 50 GB (five times
larger than a DVD) and a high-speed transfer rate of up to 54
Mbps, the format offers not only uncompromised HD quality
, but also enables rich bonus content on a single disc
and HD quality audio up to 8ch, and interactive operability.

24p True Cinema
Movies shot with a film camera consist of 24 frames per second.
Since conventional televisions (both CRT and flat panels)
display frames either at 1/60 or 1/50 second intervals, the 24
frames do not appear at an even pace.
When connected to a TV with 24p capabilities, the player
displays each frame at 1/24 second intervals — the same interval
originally shot with the film camera, thus faithfully reproducing
the original cinema image.
HDMI Control (‘BRAVIA’ Theatre Sync)
‘BRAVIA’ Theatre Sync Function makes operations simple by
connecting Sony components that are compatible with the
HDMI Control function with an HDMI cord (not supplied).
The BD-ROM format supports Java for interactive functions.
“BD-J” offers content providers almost unlimited functionality
when creating interactive BD-ROM titles*.
