The VCR features 19-micron heads that match precisely the width of the SP and EP azimuths and read only the signal recorded on each azimuth (not adjoining tracks). The commercial skip feature automatically advances the tape 30-seconds forward, bypassing recorded commercials. The Auto Clock Set function ensures that your VCR never blinks "12:00" again. A special data stream in your local broadcast source (where available) automatically sets the clock display and keeps it accurate--even when time changes to daylight saving and back. Other VCR features include 8-event/1-month programming and auto channel setup.
The DVD player provides the Digital Cinema progressive scan (3:2 inverse pulldown) function, which provides accurate, smooth film reproduction. With the Digital Picture Zoom interactive feature, you can select an area of the picture you want to zoom in on and magnify it. It can also be used to expand letterbox-only films to increase the viewable area on-screen. Other features include a four fast scan options (2x, 4x, 8x, 20x), multi-camera angle selection, 14-bit/108 MHz video digital/analog converter (DAC), 24-Bit/192kHz audio DAC, parental controls, and tri-lingual on-screen menus (English, French, Spanish).
The ColorStream Pro component video output allows the video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped interlaced or progressive scan TV. When utilized with an HD-compatible set, typical NTSC artifacts-like video noise, dot crawl, and flicker-are virtually eliminated, resulting in a low-noise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity. The full range of video and audio connections include includes:
DivX is a compressed digital video format (like MP3) that's based on the MPEG-4 video compression standard. It can reduce the video from a DVD (MPEG-2) to around 10 percent of its original size while still retaining good video and audio quality, enabling you to store several two-hour length movies on burned DVD media.
Component video (also called Y/Pb/Pr) features a three-jack video input, which provides separate connections for luminance (Y), blue color difference (PB) and red color difference (PR). This results in increased bandwidth for color information, resulting in a more accurate picture with clearer color reproduction and less bleeding than you would get with S-Video or composite (RCA yellow video plug) connections. You will need a separate RCA left/right audio cable for sound.
