12-bit/108 MHz video processing for sharp, natural images
12-bit Video DAC is a superior Digital-to-Analogue Converter that preserves every detail of the authentic picture quality. It shows subtle shades and smoother graduation of colours, resulting in a more vibrant and natural picture. The limitations of the standard 10-bit DAC become particularly apparent when it is used with large screens and projectors.
192 kHz/24-bit audio DAC enhances analogue sound input
192 kHz sampling enables you to have an accurate representation of the original sound curves. Together with a 24-bit resolution, more information is captured from the original analogue sound wave form, giving a much richer audio reproduction.
Plays CD, (S) VCD, DVD, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW
Play virtually any disc you want - whether it be a CD, (S)VCD, DVD, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW or DVD-RW. Experience unbeatable flexibility and the convenience of playing all your discs on one device.
Plays MP3, WMA and JPEG digital camera photos
Play MP3s, WMA and JPEGs, and experience the convenience of sharing media files on your TV or home theatre system - in the comfort of your living room.
Progressive Scan component video for optimised image quality
Progressive Scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising the odd lines to the screen first, followed by the field with the even lines, it writes both fields at the same time. A full image is created instantaneously, using the maximum resolution. At such a speed, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.
