Some Blu-ray Disc home video products are protected against unauthorized distribution outside their licensed territories by what is known as region encoding.

Region A, Region B or Region C Blu-ray Discs are encoded discs that are playable only on Blu-ray players manufactured for use in the specific region indicated on the player and in its accompanying documentation.

MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and AVCHD are the high-definition, widescreen television encoding formats commonly utilized for these players and discs.
