The AACS copy control license contains so-called sunset provisions for the analog video outputs of licensed Blu-ray players, including the component video outputs.
Section 126.96.36.199 of the Compliance Rules of the AACS license requires that any player manufactured after December 31, 2010 limit Blu-ray playback over analog video outputs to standard definition interlaced modes. However, it provides a one-year grace period for existing products.
Section 188.8.131.52 of the Compliance Rules requires that no player manufactured or sold after December 31, 2013 allow Blu-ray playback over any analog video output.
M300 Players and M500 Players sold by Kaleidescape before December 31, 2011 are able to output video from Blu-ray quality movies in high-definition (1080i) over component video. M300 Players, M500 Players and M700 Disc Vaults sold by Kaleidescape between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013, are able to output video from Blu-ray quality movies in standard definition (480i/576i) over component video.
M300 Players, M500 Players, and M700 Disc Vaults sold by Kaleidescape after December 31, 2013 will not output video from Blu-ray quality movies over analog outputs at all, but instead only from the digital HDMI output with HDCP copy control.
