Inputs and Outputs Notes
SC-DP1 can play the following discs: DVD-RAM, DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, DVD-R, Video
CD, audio CD, audio CD-R/CD-RW, and MP3/WMA CD.
D/A Converter: This player uses a
54MHz/10-bit video digital-to-analog converter. This high-bit, high sampling D/A
converter helps to reduce digital artifacts to give you a better picture.
Audio D/A Converter:
This unit includes an audio digital-to-analog converter capable of providing
192kHz/24-bit and 96kHz/24-bit resolution. The 192kHz/24-bit and 96kHz/24-bit
capabilities of this unit allow it to play DVD Video discs with 96kHz/24-bit
audio tracks and DVD-Audio discs with sampling rates of 192kHz.
PCM Down Conversion: This
feature allows you to select the maximum sampling frequency of the PCM digital
output. You can select Up to 48kHz, Up to 96kHz, or Up to 192kHz. When Up to
48kHz is selected, signals over 48kHz are converted to 48kHz before being passed
through the digital output. When Up to 96kHz is selected, signals over 96kHz are
converted to 48kHz before being passed through the digital output. When Up to
192kHz is selected, signals up to 192kHz are passed through the digital output.
If the DVD is copy-protected, the digital signal is automatically converted to
48kHz, regardless of the setting.
Progressive Scan Output:
Progressive-scan video has less flicker and fewer motion
artifacts than the traditional interlaced-scanning method, resulting in a
superior picture. To take advantage of this feature, you must have a television
with component video inputs that supports the progressive scanning mode.
The component outputs on this unit can be set to pass either progressive or
is a multi-channel format used for high resolution audio recording. This unit
can decode and play DVD-Audio discs with a sampling rate up to 192kHz with a
24-bit word length.
DVD-Audio recorded with this sampling rate is passed
through the analog outputs only.
MP3/WMA Playback: This unit
will play MP3/WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660
level 1/level2 format. MP3 files with a compression rate from 32-320 kbps and
WMA files with a compression rate from 48-192 kbps are supported. Each disc can
have a maximum of 999 tracks and 99 groups.
unit is not compatible with ID3 tags.
JPEG Disc Playback: This
unit will play JPEG files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660
level 1/level2 format. Exif 2.1 JPEG Baseline files with a resolution between
320 x 240 and 6144 x 4096 are supported. All JPEG files on a disc can be played
back in a slide show. The slide show has an adjustable interval from 0-30
seconds. Each disc can have a maximum of 3000 pictures and 300 groups.
HighMAT Disc Playback:
HighMAT stands for High Performance Media Access Technology. Co-developed by
Panasonic and Microsoft, HighMAT was designed to significantly improve
interoperability for digital media content between PCs and popular electronics
devices such as CD players, car stereos and DVD players. HighMAT is a
digital-media standard that provides a dramatically improved method of storing,
arranging and playing back personal digital photo, music and video collections
on recordable discs such as CD-RW media.
Advanced Surround: When
playing a Dolby Digital disc, this feature allows you to obtain a surround sound
effect from only two speakers. If you are playing a disc with surround
effects recorded on it, the effects are broadened and the sound seems to come
from virtual speakers on either side. You can select "Natural effect",
"Emphasized effect", or Off.
You can choose from the following EQ presets:
adds punch to rock
clarifies higher sounds
for background music
makes vocals more alive
Enhancer: The Dialogue
Enhancer increases the center channel volume (relative to other channels),
making movie dialogue easier to hear and understand.
This feature increases the data density in CD or DVD signals to reproduce even
high-frequency sounds outside the audible range, creating incredible sound
quality. It can also be used in conjunction with compressed formats like MP3 and
WMA to compensate for signal loss, giving you a full, rich sound.
You can choose one of the following picture mode settings:
provides a soft picture with fewer video artifacts
- Cinema 1:
mellows images and enhances detail in dark scenes
- Cinema 2:
sharpens images and enhances detail in dark scenes
- User 1:
allows you to adjust the following settings: contrast,
brightness, sharpness, color, and gamma
- User 2:
allows you to select interlaced or progressive video output
If you want to change the picture quality for movie viewing, you can choose one
of the following settings: Cinema1 or Cinema2. The Cinema1 setting mellows
images and enhances detail in dark scenes, while the Cinema2 setting sharpens
images and also enhances detail in dark scenes.
Variable Zoom Function:
Using this function, you can change the zoom ratio of the picture, so the
picture fills the television screen. You can choose from the following screen
sizes: 4:3 Standard, European Vista (1.66:1), 16:9 Standard, American Vista
(1.85:1), Cinemascope1 (2.35:1), or Cinemascope2 (2.55:1). The screen sizes
increase in width from 4:3 Standard to Cinemascope2 (2.55:1), which is the
Quick Replay allows you to jump back a few seconds during playback just in case
you missed something, or want to see it again.
This function lets you eject a disc part way through a movie, and then resume
watching from the same point later. This information can be stored for up to
to 5 points on a disc can be stored in memory and easily recalled. Markers are
cleared when power is turned off, the source is changed, or the tray is opened.
When playing a karaoke disc, the vocals can be turned off.
This unit does not have a microphone jack.
This unit is equipped with a sleep timer that will automatically turn the unit
off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer can be set to 30, 60, 90,
or 120 minutes.
The play timer allows you to choose an On time, Off time, and playback source.
Once the timer is active, it will operate everyday at the set time.
Each speaker features a 2-3/8" poly cone tweeter and a 4" poly cone
woofer with a rubber surround. The speakers are bi-amped, so each driver is
powered by a dedicated amplifier. Each cabinet has a rear-firing port for
improved bass response. The grilles are light gray cloth and can be removed.
speakers are video-shielded, allowing them to be placed near your television
without causing picture distortion.
