HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video connection. HDMI provides the best interface between a DVD player and compatible products, such as a digital television (DTV). HDMI can support uncompressed digital video up to HDTV level resolution. Thus, the player makes use of this conduit by up-converting the standard DVD picture resolution to nearly HDTV-quality with output resolutions of 720p or 1080i. This makes a DVD player with an HDMI connection the perfect match for today's digital televisions. And because this conversion is performed in the player, the signal remains free from excessive digital-to-analog conversion artifacts. These outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped progressive scan TV. 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. Provides smoother, clearer picture from discs encoded at 24 frames per second. Especially useful for highly detailed or fast-moving images.

The multi-format DVD player is compatible with a wide range of disc formats, including DVD movie, CD audio, DVD-R/RW, CD-R/RW, VCD, and SVCD. Additionally, it will also play MP3 and WMA digital audio files burned to disc and display JPEG photo slideshows. You'll be able to view JPEG images directly from your digital camera's memory card, via the 7-in-2 media card slot, which is compatible with Secure Digital (SD), Mini SD, MultiMedia (MMC), Memory Stick (Standard, Pro, Duo, Pro Duo), CompactFlash, and XD Picture cards. It also offers an integrated digital AM/FM radio tuner with a total of 50 presets.

The VCR features 19-micron heads that Heads match precisely the width of the SP and EP azimuths and read only the signal recorded on each azimuth (not adjoining tracks). The benefit is significantly enhanced SLP and EP performance so good, it rivals the quality of tapes recorded in the SP Mode. 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 SP and EP recording speeds, 8 event/1 year 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.

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. It also offers an HDMI connection for video up-conversion to high-definition 720p/1080i video formats. The full video and audio jack pack includes:

Tech Talk
HDMI -- HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
