disc if the first session is recorded in AUDIO
CD format.
This system can play back Multi Session
discs when an MP3 file, a JPEG image file,
a DivX video file or an MPEG4 video file is
contained in the first session. Any subsequent
MP3 files, JPEG image files, DivX video
files or MPEG4 video files recorded in later
sessions can also be played back.
The transferred music is limited to private
use only. Use of the music beyond this limit
requires permission of the copyright holders.

Glossary
Auto Pause
An automatic pause according to the
signal encoded on the disc while playing
a VIDEO CD. If the CD/DVD player
does not resume playback for a long time,
perform resume playback manually.
Chapter
Subdivision of a title on a DVD VIDEO.
A title is composed of several chapters.
DivX®
Digital video technology created by
DivX, Inc. Videos encoded with DivX
technology are among the highest quality
with a relatively small file size.
Dolby Digital
This movie theater sound format is
more advanced than Dolby Surround
Pro Logic. In this format, the surround
speakers output stereo sound with
an expanded frequency range and a
subwoofer channel for deep bass is
independently provided. This format is
also called “5.1” because the subwoofer
channel is counted as 0.1 channel (since
it functions only when a deep bass effect
is needed). All six channels in this format
are recorded separately for superior
channel separation. Furthermore, since
all the signals are processed digitally, less
signal degradation occurs.
140GB
“Dolby Digital Karaoke” format
(DVD VIDEO only)
The Dolby Digital format, which
reproduces surround sound using
5 channels, can also contain the
“Dolby Digital Karaoke” format
which is specialized for Karaoke. In
the “Dolby Digital Karaoke” format
discs, guide melody and guide vocal
tracks are recorded in addition to the
accompaniment. You can select guide
vocal when Karaoke mode is turned on.
DTS
Digital audio compression technology
developed by DTS, Inc. This technology
conforms to 2-channel surround. The
surround channel is stereo and there
is discrete subwoofer channel in this
format. DTS provides the same 2 discrete
channels of high quality digital audio.
The good channel separation is realized
because the all channel data is recorded
discrete and processed in digital.
DVD VIDEO
DVD-RW
A DVD-RW is a recordable and
rewritable disc that is the same size as
a DVD VIDEO. The DVD-RW has two
different modes: VR mode and Video
mode. DVD-RWs created in Video
mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO, while discs created in VR (Video
Recording) mode allow the contents to
be programmed or edited.
DVD+RW
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable
and rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a
recording format that is comparable to
the DVD VIDEO format.
File
Audio file (MP3/WMA/AAC file), JPEG
image file, DivX and MPEG4 video file
(MHC-GZR33Di only) recorded on a
DATA CD, DATA DVD or USB device.
(“File” is an exclusive definition for this
system.)
Film based software, Video based
software
DVD VIDEOs can be classified as Film
based or Video based software. Film
based DVD VIDEOs contain the same
images (24 frames per second) that are
shown at movie theaters. Video based
DVD VIDEOs, such as television dramas
or sitcoms, display images at 30 frames
(or 60 fields) per second.
Folder
Section of a music or picture piece on a
DATA CD, DATA DVD or USB device
containing MP3 files, JPEG image files,
DivX and MPEG4 video files (MHCGZR33Di only).
Continued

Additional Information
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of
moving pictures even though its diameter
is the same as an AUDIO CD. The data
capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD VIDEO, at 4.7 GB (Giga
Byte), is 7 times that of an AUDIO CD.
Furthermore, the data capacity of a duallayer and single-sided DVD VIDEO is
8.5 GB, a single-layer and double-sided
DVD VIDEO 9.4 GB, and a dual-layer
and double-sided DVD VIDEO 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2
format, one of the worldwide standards
for digital compression technology. The
picture data is compressed to about 1/40
of its original size. The DVD VIDEO
also uses variable rate coding technology
that changes the data to be allocated
according to the status of the picture.
The audio data is recorded in Dolby
Digital as well as in PCM, allowing you to
enjoy more realistic audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided
with the DVD VIDEO.
141GB
Interlace format (Interlaced scanning)
The Interlace format is the NTSC
standard method for displaying TV
images at 30 frames per second. Each
frame is scanned twice-alternately
between the even numbered scanning
lines and then odd numbered scanning
lines, at 60 times per second.
Menu Playback
Playback using the menu screens
recorded on VIDEO CDs with PBC
functions. You can enjoy simple
interactive software using the menu
playback function.
Multi-angle function
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video
camera, for a scene are recorded on some
DVD VIDEOs.
Multilingual function
Several languages for the sound or
subtitles in a picture are recorded on
some DVD VIDEOs.
Multi Session
This is a recording method that enables
adding of data using the Track-At-Once
method. Conventional CDs begin at a
CD control area called the Lead-in and
end at an area called Lead-out. A Multi
Session disc is a disc having multiple
sessions, with each segment from Lead-in
to Lead-out regarded as a single session.
142GB
Parental Control
A function of the DVD VIDEO to limit
playback of the disc by the age of the
users according to the limitation level in
each country. The limitation varies from
disc to disc; when it is activated, playback
is completely prohibited, violent scenes
are skipped or replaced with other scenes
and so on.
Playback Control (PBC)
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version
2.0) to control playback. By using menu
screens recorded on VIDEO CDs with
PBC functions, you can enjoy playing
simple interactive programs, programs
with search functions, and so on.
Progressive format (sequential
scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the
progressive format can reproduce 50 
60 frames per second by reproducing all
scanning lines (525 lines for the NTSC
system, 625 lines for PAL system). The
overall picture quality increases and still
images, text and horizontal lines appear
sharper. This format is compatible with
the 525 or 625 progressive format.
Region Code
This system is used to protect copyrights.
A region code is allocated on each DVD
system or DVD VIDEO according to
the sales region. Each region code is
shown on the unit as well as on the disc
packaging. The system can play back
the discs that match its region code. The
system can also play back discs with the
“
” mark. Even when the region code
is not shown on the DVD VIDEO, the
region limit may still be activated.
Scene
On a VIDEO CD with PBC functions,
the menu screens, moving pictures and
still pictures are divided into sections
called “scenes.”
Title
The longest section of a picture or a
music piece on a DVD VIDEO; a movie,
etc., for a picture piece on video software,
or the entire album in audio software.
Track
A compact disc that contains moving
pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1
format, one of the worldwide standards
for digital compression technology. The
picture data is compressed to about 1/140
of its original size. Consequently, a 12 cm
VIDEO CD can contain up to 74 minutes
of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio
data.
Sounds outside the range of human
hearing are compressed while the
sounds we can hear are not compressed.
VIDEO CDs can hold 6 times the audio
information of conventional AUDIO
CDs.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
Version 1.1: You can play back only
moving pictures and sounds.
Version 2.0: You can play back highresolution still pictures and enjoy PBC
functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
