Introduction
Entertainment for the new millennium
DVD-Video
DVD-VIDEO DISC
Video was never like this before! Digital video discs provide
perfect digital, studio-quality pictures; three dimensional digital,
multi-channel audio; story sequences screened from your
choice of camera angle; sound tracks in as many as eight
languages; and up to 32 subtitles (if available on disc). Whether
you watch DVD-Video on wide-screen or regular TV, you
always see it the way it was meant to be.
Digital video
DVD-Video uses state-of-the-art MPEG2 data compression
technology to register an entire movie on a single 5-inch disc.
DVD’s variable bitrate compression, running at up to 9.8 Mbits/
second, captures even the most complex pictures in their
original quality.
The crystal-clear digital pictures have a horizontal resolution of
over 500 lines, with 720 pixels (picture elements) to each line.
This resolution is more than double that of VHS, superior to
Laser Disc, and entirely comparable with digital masters made
in recording studios.
DVD-Video discs conform to either the PAL or NTSC video
standard. This player can play both PAL and NTSC discs,
presenting them in the best possible way on your multistandard TV screen.
As the universal video system of the future, DVD-Video offers
optimal pictures on any TV screen.

You will recognize DVD-Video discs by the logo shown on left.
Depending on the material on the disc (a movie, video clips, a
drama series, etc.) the disc may have one or more Titles. Each
Title may have one or more Chapters. To make playback easy
and convenient, your player lets you select Titles and playback
Chapters.
Video CD
You will recognize Video CDs by the logo shown at left.
Depending on the material on the disc (a movie, video clips, a
drama series, etc.) the disc may have one or more tracks.
Tracks may have one or more indexes, as indicated on the disc
case. To make playback easy and convenient, your player lets
you select tracks and indexes.
Super VCD
Introduction
Your DVD-Video player will play digital video discs conforming
to the universal DVD-Video standard. With it, you will be able
to enjoy full-length movies with true cinema picture quality, as
well as stereo or multi-channel sound (depending on the disc
and your playback setup). The unique features of DVD-Video,
such as selection of sound track, subtitle languages and different
camera angles (again depending on the disc), are all included.
What’s more, Child Lock lets you decide which discs your
children will be able to see.
In addition to DVD-Video discs, you will be able to play all
Video CDs and Audio CDs (including finalized CD Recordable
and CD Rewritable).
You will find the On-Screen Display, player display, and remote
control make the player easy to use. This manual provides all
the information you will need, so read on!

Component video connection achieves high fidelity in reproducing colors
(better performance than S-video connection), separating video signal into
luminance (Y, terminal color-coded as green), and color difference (PB, blue/PR,
red). Use commercially available coaxial cables. Receiver (and TV) with
component input is required. Observe the color of each jack when
connecting. If your receiver does not have component output jacks,
connecting this DVD player’s component output directly to your TV’s
component input can reproduce better video image.
Note
• Do not connect this DVD player’s COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks to
component video input jacks special for HD (High-Definition) TV.
S-Video terminal <B>
S (separate) video connection achieves a clearer picture than composite
video connection by separating color and luminance when transmitting
signals. Use commercially available S-video cable. Receiver (and TV) with

Use RCA video cable supplied with this DVD player when connecting this
DVD player to a TV.
