Creating Blu-ray Discs from high-definition image quality movies

You can create Blu-ray Discs that can be played back on Blu-ray Disc playback devices (such as Sony Blu-ray Disc players or the PlayStation 3, etc.).

A. How to create using a computer

With a Windows computer, you can copy movies imported to the computer and create Blu-ray Discs using PlayMemories Home.
Your computer must be able to create Blu-ray Discs.
When you create a Blu-ray Disc for the first time, connect your camera to the computer using a USB cable. The necessary software is automatically added to your computer. (An Internet connection is needed.)

For details on how to create a disc using PlayMemories Home, refer to the Help guide for PlayMemories Home.

B. How to create using a device other than a computer

You can also create Blu-ray Discs using a Blu-ray recorder, etc.
For details, refer to the device's operating instructions.


  • When creating Blu-ray discs using PlayMemories Home from movies recorded in the XAVC S or MP4 movie formats, the image quality is converted to 1920×1080 (60i/50i) and it is not possible to create discs with the original image quality.
    To record movies with the original image quality, copy movies to a computer or an external medium.
  • To create a Blu-ray Disc from movies recorded in the AVCHD movie format with [Record Setting] set to [60p 28M(PS)]/[50p 28M(PS)], you need to use a device that is compliant with AVCHD format Ver. 2.0. The created Blu-ray Disc can be played back only on a device that is compliant with AVCHD format Ver. 2.0.
