Progressive-Scan DVD Player


Progressive-Scan DVD Player with Multi-Format Playback, High Definition (1080i/720p) Up-Conversion, and HDMI Output


One Cable Carries High-Quality Digital Audio and Video
If you have even a moderately complicated home theater setup, you probably have a pile of tangled cables on the floor behind it. Imagine replacing all those cables with a single cable that carries both digital video and audio at the same time. With the new HDMI standard, that's exactly what you get. HDMI carries high-quality digital video and audio over the same thin cable, allowing you to run one cable from your DVD player to an HDMI-compatible TV or home theater receiver.

High Definition (1080i/720p) Up-Conversion with HDMI—Upgrade Your DVDs
When connected to an HDMI-compatible TV via an HDMI cable, this DVD player can up-convert the DVD content that youre watching to 720p or 1080i resolution (depending on your TVs display capability) so you can enjoy beautiful, high-quality imagery in high definition.

Super Multi-Format Playback—Play Almost Anything
Incredibly versatile and format friendly, this DVD player can play back just about any DVD or CD you can throw at it. Specifically, it can play back the following disc formats: DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-R1 (including dual layer), DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R (including dual layer), DVD+RW, CD, CD-DA, HDCD, and CD-R/RW2 (including MP33,, and WMA4).

Film-Like Image Quality
The goal of any playback device should be accurate reproduction of the original content. In the case of DVDs, most of that content is film-based. Utilizing advanced progressive scan5 playback techniques and very accurate MPEG video decoders, this DVD player provides an image that faithfully represents the image you see at your favorite movie theater.

Digital Recordings Sound Like the Original Performance
When compressed digital audio such as MP3s and movie soundtracks is created, higher frequencies are lost due to limited frequency response. Most of these frequencies can't be heard by human ears, but their presence conveys subtle nuances. When they're missing in a digital recording, it doesn't quite sound the same as the live performance. Our multi re-master feature examines the audio signal and helps compensate for these lost frequencies, providing sound quality closer to the original performance.
