DVD Glossary
Bitstream: This is the digital form of multiple channel audio data before it is decoded into its
various channels.
Dolby Digital: A technology developed by Dolby Laboratories that allows audio (mono up
through 5.1 channels) to be conveniently transmitted, stored and reproduced in high fidelity.
Dolby Digital is used in many movie theatres, digital television programs, DVDs and video
games around the world.
DTS Digital Surround: This surround system is used in many movie theatres around
the world. 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 equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion occurs.
Field: One frame is made up of 2 fields.
A regular television shows these fields one after the other to create frames.
Field still: A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the information of a frame still so
picture quality is lower.
Frame: Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving picture. There are
about 25/30 frames shown each second.
Frame still: A still is shown when you pause a moving picture. A frame still is made up of
2 alternating fields, so the picture may appear blurred, but overall quality is high.
Letterbox: When a rectangular picture is displayed on a normal TV, with black bands top
and bottom.
Optical digital audio lead: Electronic signals are converted to optical signals for output
to an amplifier. This reduces noise caused by electronic interference.
Pan&Scan: Expands a 16:9 widescreen picture to fill a 4:3 normal TV screen. The edges of
the picture are cut off, but there are no black bands or distortion to the picture.
PCM (pulse code modulation): PCM is the digital method used when recording music CDs.
DVDs have a greater volume so they use linear PCM, which has a higher sampling rate.
Playback control: If a Video CD has “playback control“ written on it or its jacket, it means that
particular scenes or information can be selected for viewing interactively on the television,
using the menu screen. This unit can playback Video CDs with playback control.
Title/Chapter: DVD’s are divided up into large sections, titles and smaller sections, chapters.
The numbers allocated to these sections are called title numbers and chapter numbers.
Track: Video CDs and CDs are divided up into sections called tracks, and the numbers
allocated to these sections are called track numbers.
TV-screen formats: TVs have 2 different formats 4:3 (normal) or 16:9 (widescreen).

SUPER Long Play: The Super Long play (EP mode) gives you the possibility to record three times longer
than in Standard Play mode (SP). You can record up to 720 minutes = 12 hours on a 240 minutes cassette.
Jet Rewind: The Panasonic VCRs are equipped with a Jet Rewind Drive. To rewind a E180 cassette
it will take only 60 seconds. For convenient winding and searching, the tape transportation speeding up
extremely fast and is stopping softly in very short time.
Q Link: With an Euro AV connection and with the Q Link function the VCR is able to communicate with the TV:
copying automatically the tuning positions of the TV
after finishing the playback, the VCR will switchautomatically into Standby mode if you switch of the TV
one touch on DIRECT TV REC and the VCR will record the film you are watching on the TV
if you insert a tape into your VCR, the TV in Standby mode will be switched automatically on.
External Link: With External Link the timer recording from the Satellite- or Digital Receiver is now very
simple. Set your programme in the receiver and switch your VCR with the External Link function into the
Standby mode and in the stated time the recording will start automatically.
NTSC Playback: In Europe colour system PAL is mainly used, but some other country using NTSC
colour format. With the NTSC Playback function of the VCR you can watch a NTSC VHS tape
(for example: from overseas) on your PAL TV.
REC/OTR: When you want to record manually you can easily set the recording time
to 30, 60, 120, 180 or 240 minutes, only by pressing the REC/OTR button repeatedly.
The selected recording time will be displayed.
VPS/PDC: Some stations broadcasting this signal to control the start and stop time of a timer recorded
programme. The VCR can interpret this signal to record correctly the beginning and end of the film also
if the broadcasting time is shifted (for example if a live show is running longer than scheduled).
ShowView: The ShowView numbers make it extremely easy to set the VCR for timer recording.
Only by typing the numeric code (for example out of the TV magazine) and the VCR will translate this
number into the timer recording data. After the data are confirmed (by pressing the TIMER REC button)
the recording is already programmed.
