Inputs and Outputs
unit can play the following discs:
- DVD: 5" or
3", NTSC, "Region 1" or "All Region" discs
- Video CD: 5"
- Audio CD: 5"
- CD-R (MP3, standard CD audio and
Video CD): 5" or 3"
- CD-RW (Standard CD audio only):
5" or 3"
Video D/A Converter: This
player uses a 10-bit/54MHz video digital-to-analog converter, which reduces
digital artifacts for a better picture.
Audio D/A Converter:
This unit includes an audio digital-to-analog converter capable of providing
96kHz/24-bit resolution. To hear the full benefits of the high sampling rate
discs, you must use the analog outputs of this unit; the digital outputs will
not deliver a signal for discs recorded with a sampling rate higher than 48kHz.
Component Video Output:
In addition to the composite and the S-video outputs, this unit is equipped with
a set of component video outputs. When connected to a television with a
component video input, the component video output of this unit will provide
color and detail that is superior to video from composite and S-video outputs.
The component outputs can be set to pass either progressive or interlaced video.
Progressive Scan Output: This
DVD player may be set to output a progressive scan or interlaced video signal
from the component video output. Instead of splitting each video frame into two
sequential fields like interlaced scanning, progressive scanning displays the
entire frame in a single sweep. Where a standard DVD player's 480i output
displays 30 frames (60 fields) per second, a progressive-scan player's 480p
output displays 60 full frames per second. Progressive-scan picture quality is
more film-like, with more fine detail and less flicker. Progressive-scan viewing
requires a TV with a progressive scan compatible component video input.
Play Exchange: While one disc
is playing, you can change any of the other six discs loaded in the player.
The on-screen menu can be set to English, French, or Spanish.
MP3 Playback: This unit will
play MP3 audio recorded onto CD-R (not CD-RW) discs using the ISO 9660 format.
Although the front panel display will not show file names, the file names can be
shown using the on-screen display. During MP3 playback, rapid
forward/reverse playback is not available, tracks cannot be played back in
random or programmed order, and the unit does not output a digital audio signal
from the digital outputs.
Phonic Surround Sound: When
playing a DVD recorded in Dolby Digital with rear channel output, this feature
allows you to obtain a surround sound effect from only two speakers. You may
select one of the following modes: Action, Drama, or Theater and the level of
effect can be adjusted from 1 to 5. Note: This feature only affects the
analog audio outputs.
Zoom: The zoom feature allows
you to double the image size repeatedly up to 1024x (2x,4x,8x...1024x) for a
closer examination of a particular part of the picture. You may move the picture
around the screen while it is enlarged to locate a specific area. You may also
zoom out down to 1/8x, making the picture smaller on the screen.
Multi-Angle Display: This
function allows you to choose the viewing angle of scenes that were shot from a
number of different angles. Note: This function is limited to DVDs
recorded with multiple camera angles.
Function: Displays a small still of the
opening scene of each title/chapter on a DVD or each track on a Video CD and
allows you to access that title by clicking on the still. A maximum of 9 stills
can be displayed at a time.
Function: The Strobe function allows you
to display a series of nine consecutive still pictures. You can advance the
images by pressing the "Play" button while in Strobe mode.
Fine Processor): With
the VFP function, you can adjust the picture character according to the type of
programming, the picture tone, or your personal preferences. There are four
presets: NORMAL, CINEMA, USER 1, and USER 2. NORMAL and CINEMA are factory
presets and cannot be adjusted. USER 1 and USER 2 have the following adjustable
parameters that can be stored:
- Y Delay (controls
the color gap of the screen)
- Gamma (controls the
brightness of neutral tints while maintaining the brightness of dark and
Play: This feature allows you to resume playback of a disc from
the point where you last stopped. The stopping point will be saved even if the
power is turned off.
Repeat Play: The
"Repeat A-B" function allows you to select any portion of a DVD, Video
CD or audio CD and have it repeat until the unit is manually stopped. When
playing a DVD, you can repeat the current title or the current chapter. When
playing a Video CD or an audio CD, you can repeat the current track or the
Random Play: When
playing an audio CD or a Video CD, you can play the tracks in random order.
Program Play: Up to
24 titles or tracks can be programmed and played in any order.
There are four fast-play speeds in both forward and reverse: 2X, 5X, 20X and 60X
the normal speed.
Slow Motion: When playing a DVD
or Video CD, you may move forward through the program being played in one of
four slow motion speeds: 1/32, 1/16, 1/4 or 1/2 the normal speed. When playing a
DVD, you may move backward through the program being played using one of the
same four slow motion speeds.
Lock Function: Restricts playback of DVDs that contain violent
and other types of content, according to the level set by the user. For example,
if a movie containing violent scenes supports the parental lock feature, such
scenes can be cut or replaced with other scenes. You can select a parental
control rating from 0-8, which is protected by a 4-digit password. Discs rated
higher than the selected level are restricted.
Display Dimmer: The unit's
display may be set to one of three brightness levels.

Stream/PCM (used when connecting the unit to a component with both DTS and
Dolby Digital decoding), or Dolby Digital/PCM (used when connecting this
unit to a component with Dolby Digital decoding, but no DTS decoder). Note:
When the unit is playing a DVD recorded in 96kHz, no signal is passed
through the digital outputs.

Logic decoder, or Lo/Ro; which is used when the player is connected to a two
channel stereo amplifier or digital recorder.
