P.SCAN(Progressive Scan) Function
Unlike a regular Interlace Scan in which two fields of picture information are alternated to
create the entire picture (odd scan lines, then even scan lines), Progressive Scan uses one
field of information (all lines displayed in one pass) to create a clear and detailed picture
without visible scan lines.
down for a minimum of 1 second.
• The previous mode is indicated in the display first, followed by the selected mode in about a second.
What is Progressive (or Non-Interlaced) Scanning?
Interlaced Scan (1 FRAME = 2 FIELDS)
In interlaced-scan video, a frame consists of two
interlaced fields (odd and even), where each field
contains every other horizontal line in the frame.
The odd field of alternating lines is displayed first, and
then the even field is displayed to fill in the alternating
gaps left by the odd field to form a single frame.
One frame, displayed every 1/30th of a second, contains
two interfaced fields, thus a total of 60 fields are
displayed every 1/60th of a second.
The interlaced scanning method is intended for capturing
a still object.
Note
Progressive Scan (FULL FRAME)
The progressive scanning method scans one full frame of
video consecutively down the screen, line by line.
As opposed to the interlaced scanning process, where a
video image is drawn in a series of passes, you get an
entire image drawn at one time.
The progressive scanning method is desirable for dealing
with moving objects. A camera that has the ability to
capture moving objects is called a "full frame shutter
camera".
• This function works only on TVs equipped with component video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) that support Progressive
Video. (It does not work on TVs with conventional component inputs, i.e., non-progressive scan TVs.)
• Depending on the brand and model of your TV, this function may not work.
16
CONNECTIONS
While the player is in the Stop mode, hold the P.SCAN button down for longer
than 1 second.
• The selection switches back and forth between "P.SCAN" and "I.SCAN" each time the button is held

What is Dolby Virtual Speaker?
In a battle scene from your favorite sci-fi movie, the action is all around you. When the enemy creeps up from behind in
a video game, you look over your shoulder before he strikes. Listening to music, you're right there on stage with the
performers, or surrounded by the audience at a live concert event.
Are these sensations being produced by a complicated home theater system with speakers all around you? No, they're
coming from a PC, TV set, or DVD player with Dolby Virtual Speaker technology playing over just two speakers.
That's right: with Dolby Virtual Speaker technology, as few as two speakers, placed in front of you in a typical stereo
setup, actually sound like the five separate speakers in a full-bore home theater system. You can enjoy DVD movies
with all the exciting effects intended by their directors and sound mixers. Gaming takes on a thrilling new third
dimension. Even with stereo music, CDs, MP3 files, and TV shows you'll hear convincing, realistic surround sound.
Dolby Virtual Speaker technology is a next-generation process that reproduces the complex sonic cues necessary to
locate precisely where sounds are coming from. Previous virtual technologies communicated only a portion of these
critical cues. But Dolby Virtual Speaker technology has the power to convince your ears that you are literally
surrounded by sonic activity!
At home, on the go, or at your desk, whenever a multispeaker playback system is unavailable or inappropriate, Dolby
Virtual Speaker is your ticket to a rich, involving, true-to-life surround sound experience.
DVS technology enables true-to-life 5.1 surround sound from both multichannel and stereo programs over as few as
two speakers, allowing multichannel programs to be heard as their producers intended. Its uniquely powerful, nextgeneration signal processing convincingly portrays the sound of properly placed surround speakers, making it ideal for
use in PCs, DVD players, and TV sets. As a result, all viewing, listening, and gaming activities are transformed into
realistic surround-sound experiences without the added expense and complexity of a traditional surround system.
