Chapter number These numbers are recorded on DVD discs A title is sub-divided into many sections, each of which is numbered, and specific parts of video presentations can be searched quickly using these numbers. DVD This refers to a high-density optical disc on which high-quality pictures and sound have been obtained by means of digital signals. incorporation a new video compression technology (MPEG II) and high-density recording technology, DVD enables esthetically pleasing full-motion video to be recorded over long periods of time (for instance, a whole movie can be recorded). DVD has a structure consisting of two 0.6 mm thin discs which are adhered to each other. Since the thinner the disc the higher the density at which the information can be recorded, a DVD disc has a greater capacity than a single 1.2 mm thick disc. Since the two thin discs are adhered to each other, there is the potential to achieve double-sided play sometime in the future for even longer duration play. Playback control (PBC) This is recorded on a Video CD (version2.0). The scenes or information to be viewed (or listened to) can be selected interactively with the TV monitor by looking at the menu shown on the TV monitor. Subtitles This is the appearance of the dialogue at the bottom of the screen which are prerecorded on some DVD discs. Time number This indicates the play time which has elapsed from the start of a disc or a title. It can be used to find a specific scene quickly. (It may not work with some discs.) Title number These numbers are recorded on DVD discs. When a disc contains two or more movies, these movies are numbered as title 1, title2, etc. Track number These numbers are assigned to the tracks which are recorded on Video CDs and CDs. They enable specific tracks to be located quickly. Video CD This contains recordings of pictures and sound whose quality is on a par with that of videotape. This player also supports Video CDs with playback control (version 2.0). 21 For Reference Disc formats supported by this player: For Reference Disc handling and maintenance Care of disc: Do not touch the signal surface.
