Glossary
Index
Markings assigned for particular points
to divide a track or a whole disc. By
using indexes you can easily find
particular points you want. There are
two types of index—one is for audio
CDs and the other is for VIDEO CDs.
This player only conforms to the latter
type of index, called “Video Index.”
PBC Playback
Playback using the menus recorded on
VIDEO CDs with PBC functions. You
can enjoy simple interactive operations
using the PBC Playback.
Playback Control (PBC)
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs
(Version 2.0) to control playback.
By using menus recorded on VIDEO
CDs with PBC functions, you can enjoy
playing simple interactive software,
software with search functions, and so
on. When you insert a VIDEO CD with
PBC functions on this player, “PBC”
appears on the display.
Scene
Markings differentiating still pictures,
moving picture or menus recorded on
VIDEO CDs with PBC functions. Each
scene is assigned with a number, called
“Scene Number.”
Track
Markings differentiating pictures or
songs recorded on VIDEO CDs or audio
CDs. Each track is assigned with a
number, called “Track Number.”
VIDEO CD
A compact disc containing moving
pictures. Picture data is compressed to
1/120th of the original data in the
MPEG 1 format (one of the worldwide
standards of digital compression
technologies) and recorded on a disc.
A 12 cm VIDEO CD can reproduce up
to 74 minute’s length of moving
pictures. Audio data is also compressed
so that a VIDEO CD can contain 6 times
as much audio data as an audio CD.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
• Version 1.1: You can play only
moving pictures and sounds.
• Version 2.0: You can play still
pictures and enjoy PBC functions.
