■ RGB
This refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green (G), and blue (B) and also the method of producing video that uses them. By
dividing the video signal into the three colours for transmission, noise is reduced for even higher quality images.
■ Q Link functions
Q Link offers a range of convenient functions (For further details ➔ page 41). Make sure to connect a fully wired 21-pin Scart cable to the
television if using the Q Link function.
The following systems from other manufacturers have similar function to Q Link from Panasonic. For details, refer to your television’s operating
instructions or consult your dealer.

Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM compatible recorders and discs.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels for stereo output. It is useful when you
want to listen to the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through
your television’s speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this
unit can then only output the front two channels.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression
means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds.
This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialog clearly.

Film and video
DVD-Video are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
For PAL
Film is 25 frames per second.
Video is 50 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
For NTSC
Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film generally
being 24 frames per second.
Video is 60 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalize
DVD-R, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format) or +R on this unit.
After finalizing, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer
record or edit. You can record after formatting although it becomes
play-only after finalizing, when you use DVD-RW.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format DVD-RAM or DVD-RW (only as DVD-Video format)
on this unit.
Formatting erases irrevocably all contents.
Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see
on your television. Each frame consists of two fields.
+
=
Frame
Field
Field
• A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
• A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding color still pictures.
If you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras etc.,
the data will be compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The
feature of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering
the degree of compression.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to
approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of
audio quality. You can play MP3 you have recorded onto CD-R and
CD-RW.

Pan & Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images
often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of
picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50i · 50p, 525 (480)/60i · 60p
input terminals are progressive compatible.
Pan& Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)
Progressive/Interlace
The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (i) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625p (or 576p), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 525i (or 480i) and 525p (or 480p) respectively.
Q Link
This function works only if the unit is connected via a fully wired 21pin Scart cable to a TV featuring the Q Link or similar function.
Q Link offers the following functions:
• Download from the TV
When you connect the unit to a TV, the station list data is
automatically copied from the TV to the unit, and the TV stations
are assigned to the programme positions on the unit in the same
order as on the TV.
• Direct TV Recording
By simply pressing [* DIRECT TV REC], you can at once record
the same programme that you are watching on the TV.
• TV/DVD Auto On
Even if the TV and the unit are off (standby mode), pressing [q]
(PLAY), [DIRECT NAVIGATOR, TOP MENU], [ShowView] or
[PROG/CHECK] automatically turns on both the TV and the unit.
If the TV is off (standby mode) and the unit is on, when you press
[FUNCTIONS] or [q] (PLAY), or insert the disc [except DVD-RAM,
DVD-R, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format) and +R], the TV
automatically is turned on.
• DVD Auto Standby
When you turn the TV off, the unit is turned off as well. However,
this function works in the stop mode.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display
multiple pictures in the form of a list.

VPS (Video Programme System)/PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
VPS or PDC is a very convenient system which records exactly from beginning to end of the TV programmes set in timer recording, even if the
actual broadcasting time differs from the scheduled time due to delayed start or extension of the programme duration. Also, if a programme is
interrupted, for example, some special news is inserted, the recording will be paused automatically and resumed when the programme continues.
Depending on the signals sent from the TV stations, the VPS/PDC system may not work properly even when “VPS/PDC” has been set to “ON”.
Please check with the broadcasters in your area for details.
• In the case of VPS/PDC recording, use the correct time (VPS/PDC time) for recording the TV programmes.
Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when the recording time is not the correct time (VPS/PDC time).
VPS/PDC recording is not performed when the time (VPS/PDC time) is incorrect, even if only by one minute. To find out the correct time (VPS/
PDC time), consult Teletext, a newspaper or magazine, or other source.
• If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings overlap (regardless of whether they are VPS/PDC controlled), the recording that starts first
always has priority, and the recording of the later programme will start only after the first timer recording has finished.
• When the VPS/PDC signal drops out because the broadcast signal is weak, or when a TV station does not transmit a regular VPS/PDC signal,
the timer recording will be performed in the normal mode (without VPS/PDC) even if it was programmed for VPS/PDC.
In this case, even if the timer recording is performed, whatever has been programmed will not be cancelled at that particular time but at 4 a.m.
two days later.
• The start times of scheduled programmes listed in the newspaper or magazine may be changed at a later date. Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when
programming a programme whose start time has been subsequently changed. Particular care must be taken in this respect with SHOWVIEW
programming since “VPS/PDC” is automatically set to “ON” in some countries (➔ below).
• If a programme listed in a newspaper or magazine has two SHOWVIEW numbers, use the SHOWVIEW number for VPS/PDC if you wish to proceed
with VPS/PDC recording using SHOWVIEW programming.
• The default settings for “VPS/PDC” differ depending on the country concerned. Refer to the following table.

Safety precautions
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit
and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC
mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.
