Inputs and Outputs Notes
Disc Compatibility: This unit can play the following types of discs:
DVD-Video and audio CD. In addition, this unit is compatible with CD-R, CD-RW,
DVD-R, and DVD-RW discs, as well as MP3, WMA, and JPEG files recorded on CD-R,
CD-RW or CD-ROM discs. According to the manufacturer, this unit can also play
DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, although compatibility with these discs is not mentioned
in the manual.
Dual Discrete Video Circuit:
The DVD-1910 uses dual 10-bit 54 MHz video D/A converters to ensure highly
accurate playback of delicate, low-level video signals and give you a vivid
picture that is faithful in every detail. One D/A converter is used to process
Progressive signals and one is used for Interlaced signals to eliminate mutual
interference between the two types of signals.
Audio D/A Converter:
This unit has dual 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters.
Digital Audio Output Capabilities:
You can select an LPCM output setting of On or Off. When On is selected and
you are playing a DVD recorded in 96kHz, the signal is down converted to
48kHz/16-bit before it is passed through the digital outputs. When Off is
selected and the unit is playing a non-copy-protected DVD recorded in 96kHz, a
96kHz/24-bit signal passes through the digital outputs. If the DVD is
copy-protected, the digital signal is automatically down converted.
Progressive Scan Output With
Faroudja's DCDi: This unit has a progressive scan output featuring
Faroudja's patented Directional Correlational Deinterlacing (DCDi). This
technology applies new motion adaptive deinterlacing that prevents the
introduction of motion artifacts and jagged edges from video signals that
originated from video cameras (such as with sporting events, live camera feeds
and music videos). The result is a sharper, noise-free picture with finer
details. Video images are displayed with optimum naturalness and color
reproduction with less flicker and fewer motion artifacts than traditional
interlaced scanned pictures.
2 MB Buffer Memory: This unit
is equipped with a 2 MB buffer memory to ensure that both picture and sound are
played without interruption when the DVD disc shifts from layer 1 to layer 2, or
in the rare event of a pickup dropout.
Video Scaler: This unit
features a built-in high quality video scaler that is capable of outputting
video signals in a variety of customizable HD formats. You can select in the
setup menu to output the image from the DVI-D connector as 480p, 720p, or 1080i.
MP3/WMA Playback: This unit
will play MP3/WMA files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO
9660 level 1/level 2 or Joliet formats. 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 255 folders and 512 files.
JPEG Disc Playback: This unit
will play JPEG files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO
9660 level 1/level 2 or Joliet formats. JPEG files with a resolution between 32
x 32 and 6300 x 5100 are supported. All JPEG files on a disc can be played back
in a slide show. The slide show has a fixed interval of 5 seconds. During slide
show playback, you can rotate an image 90-degrees clockwise or counterclockwise.
In addition, you have access to the following features: random, program, and
repeat playback. Each disc can have a maximum of 255 folders and 512 images.
Virtual Surround simulates multi-channel surround sound using only two speakers.
You can choose one of the following modes: 1 (natural effect), 2 (emphasized
effect), or Off.
Picture Zooming: During play,
when you press the Zoom button on the remote control, you can enlarge the
picture by 2x or 4x. You can then use the cursor buttons to move the enlarged
viewing area up, down, to the left, or to the right.
Markers: Up to 10
points on a DVD or CD can be stored in memory and easily recalled. Markers are
automatically cleared when the power is turned off or when the tray is opened.
Function: The Resume function allows the player to remember the point
where you stopped play as long as the unit is on. Playback will resume from the
point stored in memory. The stopping point is cleared if the tray is opened or
the stop button is pressed a second time.
Auto Power-Off: If the unit is
in stop mode for approximately 35 minutes, it will automatically switch to
Dimmer: You can choose from the
following display brightness settings: Bright, Dim, or Auto. In Auto mode, the
display dims only during playback.
Black Level Control: This
feature allows you to make dark portions of the video brighter.
Inputs and Outputs Notes
DVI-D Output: The DVD-1910 has
a 24-pin DVI-D jack for connecting a compatible TV or monitor. Using the setup
