Optimum disc playability : ensuring excellent picture quality

Philips components and modules for the various

CD applications have always enjoyed an excellent reputation in the market place for super disc playability - the ability to play discs which may be scratched, soiled or not fully according to the standard specification. This position has been underlined by tests showing the superior performance of the various Philips players, as well as by the positive experiences of millions of individual consumers around the world.

Constantly improving performance

As the penetration of the CD system has increased, and new applications like CD-ROM and Video CD have become commonplace,

Philips Components - as the CD technology inventor and as one of the major suppliers of CD player modules in the industry - has constantly improved the performance of its products.

One of the ways in which this benefits users is by optimum disc playability. This is an important parameter for CD players other than CD Audio, and especially for the Video CD applications, because any loss of data from the disc will at best cause disturbances in the reproduced picture, and at worst can cause the player to lose track so that disc playing fails.

Presenting Super Error Correction

To ensure consistently good results when playing

Video CD discs of all quality grades and conditions, Philips has introduced further improvements in the system's playability. These developments together are called Super Error

Correction, a proprietary Philips technology optimizing the system's ability to handle less-thanperfect discs with the minimum disturbance to normal playing.

By effectively eliminating virtually all errors arising under normal playing conditions, Super Error

Correction ensures that the picture quality as seen by the user is independent of disc play. The video encoding and processing during mastering of the disc, and the MPEG-1 decoding and video encoding in the signal processing stages, are now the only limiting factors for picture quality.

General Information

IMPORTANT:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE VOLTAGE

SELECTOR LOCATED AT THE REAR

OF THIS SYSTEM IS PRESET AT 220V

FROM THE FACTORY.

FOR COUNTRIES THAT OPERATE AT

110-127V, PLEASE ADJUST TO 110-127V

BEFORE YOU SWITCH ON THE

SYSTEM.

The type plate (which contains the serial

number) is located at the rear of the player.

Recording is permissible if copyright or

other rights of third parties are not infringed.

Environmental Information

All unnecessary packaging has been omitted. We have tried to make the packaging easy to separate into three materials: cardboard (box), polystyrene foam (buffer) and polyethylene (bags, protective foam sheet).

Your system consists of materials which can be recycled and reused if disassembled by a specialized company. Please observe the local regulations regarding the disposal of packaging materials, exhausted batteries and old equipment.

Supplied Accessories

– Remote control

– Batteries (two AA size) for remote control

– AM loop antenna

– FM wire antenna

– AC power cord

– One Video cinch cable

Safety Information

¶ Before operating the player, check that the operating voltage indicated on the typeplate (or the voltage indication beside the voltage selector) of your player is identical with the voltage of your local power supply. If not, please consult your dealer. The typeplate is located at the rear of your player.

¶ When the player is switched on, do not move it around.

¶ Place the player on a solid base (e.g. a cabinet).

¶ Place the player in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent internal heat build-up in your player. Allow at least 10 cm (4 inches) clearance from the rear and the top of the unit and 5 cm (2 inches) from the each side.

¶ Do not expose the player to excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources.

¶ Under no circumstances should you repair the player yourself, as this will invalidate the warranty!

¶ If the player is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lens of the disc unit inside the player. Should this occur, the CD player will not operate normally. Leave the power on for about one hour with no disc in the player until normal playback is possible.

¶ Electrostatic discharge may cause unexpected problems. See whether these problems disappear if you unplug the AC power cord and plug it in again after a few seconds.

To disconnect the player from the power

supply completely, remove the AC power plug from the wall socket.
