Converter: This unit includes an audio digital-to-analog converter

Output: This unit 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.
