of its high compression ratio.
MP3: A file format with a sound data compression
system. “MP3” is the abbreviation of Motion Picture
Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. By using
MP3 format. one CD-R or CD-RW can contain about

track constitute one sound field. Multichannel refers to
a structure of sound tracks having three or more
channels.
Parental control: A function of the DVD 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

the user-set level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A system for
converting analog sound signal to digital signal for later
processing, with no data compression used in
conversion.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a

regions).
S-Video: Produces a clear picture by sending
separate signals for the luminance and the color. You
can use S-Video only if your TV has S- video In jack.
Sampling Frequency: Frequency of sampling data
when analog data is converted to digital data Sampling
frequency numerically represents how many time the
original analog signal is sampled per second.
Seating control: It gives the user a perfect sound
and movie experience anywhere in the room, providing
maximum flexibility and real total immersion because
the user can choose their preferred seat.
Surround: A system for creating realistic threedimensional sound fields full of realism by arranging
