New Blu-ray Devices To Limit Analog Video Outputs To SD Interlace Modes


All the AACS licensed Blu-ray players and recorders that manufactured after December 31, 2010 shall limit analog video outputs for Decrypted AACS Content to SD Interlace Modes only.

This is part of the "Analog Sunset" rules, which describe the sunset of all analog outputs in devices and are part of the AACS is the copy protection scheme used by Blu-Ray devices.

The Advanced Access Content System Licensing Administrator (AACS LA) is responsible for the development of specifications to manage content stored on next-generation optical media used on PCs and CE devices. According to the 'AACS Final Adopter Agreement' documents, any licensed Blu-ray player manufactured after December 31, 2010 shall limit analog video outputs for Decrypted AACS Content to SD Interlace Modes only (i.e., composite video, s-video, 480i component video and 576i video).

Specifically, commercial Blu-ray disc titles stored in BD-ROM discs and protected digitally broadcasted content recorder and stored in BD-R/RE and DVD-R/RAM (AVREC) media will be available through a device's analogue video outputs in SD Interlace Modes only.

The Blu-ray devices that have been already released before the 31st of December will continue to output HD video through their analog video outputs.

Starting from January 2014, all the Blu-ray devices will not feature any analog video outputs at all, according to the AACS licensing agreement.

Panasonic's "DMR-BZT900" Blu-ray DIGA recorder that will be released in February 2011, as well as Sharp's, Sony's and Toshiba's new BD recorders and players will also conform to the AACS rules.
