HIGH SOUND AND PICTURE QUALITY
Noise shaped Video™ and DCDi Progressive Scanning
This technology, from Analog Devices, uses oversampling and advanced techniques such as multi-bit sigma-delta processing and bit-shuffling to improve converter performance by moving converter noise to an area of the spectrum where it can be removed by an analog filter. This improves the accuracy of signal representation, allowing images to be displayed at much higher resolutions. Other advanced technologies used to maximize image quality are Faroudja DCDi Processing, Motion Adaptive Noise Reduction, Cross Color Supression, Aspect Ratio Conversion and TrueLife Enhancer.
216 MHz/12-Bit Video DAC
This new high performance video DAC ensures superior image quality with all video sources.
HIGH SOUND QUALITY
Exceptionally Good sound Quality
This model delivers sound quality that is superior even to some more expensive players. It uses a high performance 192kHz/24-bit audio DACs.
Audio Direct Mode
Selecting the Audio Direct mode cuts the video circuitry out of the signal path, so there is no chance of it affecting the sound quality. The front panel illumination is also turned off to prevent noise interference from the LCD.
This player provides Bass Management processing and a subwoofer/bass management output terminal. Bass management is important for DVD Audio and Super Audio CD multichannel playback, as it properly routes the bass frequencies for best performance from a multi-speaker home theater system. With normal 2-channel (stereo) CDs, the bass frequencies are routed to the subwoofer, so you can enjoy "2.1" channel sound with more powerful bass.
An RS-232C interface is provided so this player can be controlled via computer in a custom installation.
On-Screen Display with GUI (Graphical User Interface)
This model makes operation extremely simple by displaying a variety of clearly understandable GUI menus right on the TV or monitor screen. It's easy to select and adjust any desired function with the remote control.
Three Wide Screen Modes
Three modes can be selected for optimum viewing on widescreen monitors via HDMI output: Non-Linear Stretch, Pillar Box and Zoom. Non-Linear Stretch helps minimize distortion of a 4:3 picture by trimming the top and bottom to make it closer to a 16:9 picture.
HDMI® (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio / video interface. Providing an interface between any source (such as a set-top box or AV receiver) and an audio / video monitor (such as a digital television), HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high-definition video as well as multichannel digital audio using a single cable. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. When used in combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), HDMI provides a secure audio / video interface that meets the security requirements of content providers and system operators.

DVD-Audio is an extension of the highly popular DVD format, distinguished by its capability to deliver high quality multi-channel audio capability previously unavailable in traditional packaged audio media.
Super Audio CD
DVD players that support Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100 kHz and a dynamic range over 120 dB across the audible frequency range – some 64 times higher resolution than CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just can’t hear on a normal CD.
DCDi TM (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing)
Invented and patented by Faroudja, Directional Correlational De interlacing (DCDi), virtually alleviates jagged oblique lines that appear when standard interlaced video is viewed on progressive scan displays, enabling the reproduction of beautiful, natural-looking moving images.
This technology, from Analog Devices, uses oversampling and advanced techniques such as multi-bit sigma-delta processing and bitshuffling to improve converter performance by moving converter noise to an area of the spectrum where it can be removed by an analog filter. This improves the accuracy of signal representation, allowing images to be displayed at much higher resolutions.
The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby® Pro Logic® offering: 1) Full frequency response in all channels (3 Hz — 20 kHz), 2) discrete surround channels, and 3) a separate track for bass, only, called the Low-Frequency Effects channel.
DTS Digital Surround™
DTS Digital Surround™ was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a multichannel digital sound track. This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (front left and right, center, surround left and right and subwoofer low frequency effect channels for a total of 5.1-channels).
DivX is the video compression codec developed by DivX Networks and based on the MPEG-4 compression format. Its balance of high video quality and low bit rate has made it very popular and quickly established it as the best home video format thus far. The ability to play it on newer DVD models continues to add to its popularity as DivX Networks advances its support to many new household products. This compression technology has the potential for expanding the ways we view video media in much the way MP3 has given us many new ways to listen to music.
DVD Players equipped with Video CD capabilities will be able to play video and sound media that has been compressed together using the MPEG 1 standard, and recorded onto a CD disc.
