Connecting to a television with 21-pin Scart

terminal

You can also connect with the AV1 terminal on this unit using the

21-pin Scart cable.

If your television is equipped with RGB input capability, by connecting with a fully wired 21-pin Scart cable you can see video using RGB output on this unit.

To output in RGB select “RGB (without component)” from “AV1

Output” in the SETUP menu (

➡page 41).

RGB 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.

Connecting to a VCR with 21-pin Scart terminal

You can also connect with the AV2 terminal on this unit using the

21-pin Scart cable.

To input in RGB select “RGB (Not NTSC)” from “AV2 Input” in the

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.

Foreign matter

Do not let metal objects fall inside the unit. This can cause electric shock or malfunction.

Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from the power supply and contact your dealer.

Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.

Service

Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other problem that is not covered in these instructions occurs, disconnect the AC mains lead and contact your dealer or an authorized service center. Electric shock or damage to the unit can occur if the unit is repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified persons.

Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the power source if it is not to be used for a long time.

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.

When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default audio.

Down-mixing

This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some discs into two channels. 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.

DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)

DPOF is the standard printing format for still picture data taken by a digital camera, etc. It is used for automatic printing at a photo developing store or on your home printer.

Drive

In the instance of this unit, this refers to the disc (DVD), SD card

(SD) and PC card (PC). These perform the reading and writing of data.

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 dialogue clearly.

Film and video

DVD-Videos 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 on this unit.

After finalizing, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer record or edit.

Folder

This is a place on the DVD-RAM or memory card where groups of data are stored together. In the case of this unit, it refers to the place where still pictures (JPEG, TIFF) are stored.

Formatting

Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM recordable on recording equipment.

You can format the DVD-RAM and memory cards 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.

u r

RQT7450

46

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 colour 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.

LPCM (Linear PCM)

These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on

CDs. LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode.

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.

Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture fills the screen.

Letterbox: 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 576 (or 625) interlaced (I) scan lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 576P (or 625P), uses twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are called 480I (or 525I) and 480P (or 525P) respectively.

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.

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.

TIFF (Tag Image File Format)

This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures.

A common format for storing high quality images on digital cameras and other devices.

Thumbnail

This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display multiple pictures in the form of a list.

VBR (Variable bitrate)

This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate according to video signal.
