Installation

Receiver Location

Locate for comfortable viewing. Avoid placing where sunlight or other bright light (including reflections) will fall on the screen.

Use of some types of fluorescent lighting can reduce remote control transmitter range.

Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent internal component failure. Keep away from areas of excessive heat or moisture.

To insure optimum picture do not position magnetic equipment (motors, fans, other speakers, etc.) nearby.

Optional External Equipment

The Video/Audio connection between components can be made with shielded video and audio cables. For best performance,

Antenna cables should utilize 75 ohm coaxial shielded wire. Cables are available from your dealer or electronic supply store.

Before you purchase any cables, be sure you know what type of output and input connectors your various components require.

Also determine the length of cable you’ll need.

For optimum quality picture

When the LCD is exposed to light from outdoors or lighting fixtures, high-contrast pictures may not be displayed clearly. Turn off florescent lamps near the LCD and place in a location not exposed to outdoor light.

Handling precautions

Hold the disc by the edges so the surface will not be soiled with fingerprints.

Fingerprints, dirt and scratches can cause skipping and distortion.(

Notes:

This TV is equipped with various screen modes. If a screen mode with a different aspect from the broadcast program is selected, image will appear differently. Select the proper screen mode with this in mind.

Be careful when using this TV for commercial purposes or for public use, such as in cafes and hotels, for shrinking and enlarging images by using screen mode switching function (zoom, etc.) may violate copyright laws.

Images displayed on a wide screen TV will be cut off or distorted at the edges, when viewing normal aspect images of 4:3 in ZOOM, JUST or FULL mode. Display in NORMAL mode to view the original image intended by the producer.

The adjusted setting will be kept even when the TV is turned off.

The signals output from the monitor output terminal on the right of the TV are not affected when the screen size and position are adjusted.

Features of DVD on this Product

High picture quality

10 bit video D/A converter

Reproduces fine images faithfully.

An array of picture quality modes yielded by digital processing

Signal deterioration is kept to minimum by processing the data digitally.

This feature can be used to tailor picture quality for DVD playback.

High sound quality

96 kHz/24 bit audio D/A converter

This player enables 96 kHz/24 bit linear PCM signals, the highest specifications in DVD standards, to be reproduced faithfully. To support 96 kHz sampling/24 bit sound, the shaping noise of this multilevel digital sigma type D/A converter is kept flat up to 44 kHz, thus preventing the audio signals from being affected in any way. This means sound is reproduced faithfully.

Advanced Dolby Digital/dts (digital theater systems) 5.1ch

surround decoder (See pages 11 and 62.)

The advanced Dolby Digital /dts 5.1ch surround decoder incorporated in this player comes with speaker mode settings which support the low-range reproduction capability of the speakers, speaker level settings, delay time adjustment*, audio dynamic range suppression, and other features.

* Delay time adjustment is effective only for Dolby Digital DVDs

(center and surround channels).

Dolby Digital/dts (digital theater systems) digital output

(See page 11.)

By connecting a Dolby Digital/dts decoder or an amplifier incorporating a Dolby Digital/dts decoder, you can enjoy high quality digital surround sound from Dolby Digital/dts discs.

This player can store a maximum of 5 positions in memory for convenient access.

Dialogue Enhancer (See pages 43 and 49.)

During playback of Dolby Digital/dts DVDs (2 channel or over) with the dialogue contained in the center channel, this function will boost the sound level of the center channel so that it is easier to hear the dialogue on movie software.

Graphical User Interface (GUl) screen (See page 46.)

By simply pressing the DISPLAY button on the remote control, information on the DVD/Video CD/CD player and disc can be displayed on the TV screen for easy identification. The player’s operations and settings can be easily accessed by operating the joystick on the remote control while monitoring the TV screen.

Note

• Some dts decoders which do not support DVD-dts interface may not work properly with the DVD/Video CD/CD player.

For your reference:

• Dolby Digital is a digital sound compression technique developed by the Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Supporting 5.1channel surround sound, as well as stereo (2-channel) sound, this technique enables a large quantity of sound data to be efficiently recorded on a disc.

• The digital theater systems (dts) is a 5.1-channel surround sound system, which is widely used in movie theatres around the world. It allows the bit rate to be increased in order to provide good sound quality without excessively compressing the data.

• Linear PCM is a signal recording format used in a CD. While a

CD is recorded in 44.1 kHz/16 bit, a DVD is recorded in 48 kHz/16 bit up to 96 kHz/24 bit.

• If you have a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder, you will obtain the full benefit of Pro Logic from the same DVD movies that provide full 5.1-channel Dolby Digital soundtracks, as well as from titles with the Dolby Surround mark.

• The digital audio output connector (optical) converts electrical signals into optical signals and transfers them to an amplifier.

These optical signals are immune from electrical interference, and they also have minimal effect on other equipment.

Caution for the optional/coaxial digital audio output connector:

• Do not connect to the digital audio input of an amplifier that does not have Dolby Digital/dts/MPEG audio decoder.

• If such an amplifier should be connected to the player with “Bitstream” selected at the “2 Dolby digital”, “3 DTS

I/P/B

The MPEG 2 standard adopted for DVD uses the following 3 picture types for the coding of each picture (frame) on the TV screen.

I:I-Picture (Intra coded picture)

This is the standard picture type, and each picture is coded separately.

P:P-Picture (Predictive coded picture)

This picture type is computed on the basis of a past I-Picture or P-Picture.

B:B-Picture (Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture)

This picture type is computed by comparing the previous and subsequent I-Picture or P-Picture. It has the lowest volume of information.

Predict

. . .

I B B P B B . . .

Example: P-Picture

Field

Half of the video information (video signal) in a frame is called a field. With conventional TV systems, a signal frame (a single screen) consists of two fields.

Field still

Only one field (half of the video information) is displayed on the TV screen, so the apparent resolution is low. However, there is no blurring on the screen.

Frame

Individual images in a video or on the TV are called frames.

Frame still

The two fields are displayed, alternately, on the TV screen, so the image is blurry. However, the image quality is better than field images.

How images appear on your TV (aspect ratios of the screen)

The Images on the TV screen depend on the type of software and the TV set.

The images which appear on the TV screen, and what each screen mode is called, depend on the manufacturer of the TV set and type of TV set. Consult the instruction manual provided with your TV set.

Letterbox

Black bands are inserted at the top and bottom of the screen to fill in the gaps where the size of the picture is smaller than the screen.

Pan and scan

Part of the wide-screen picture (either at both sides or one side of the screen) is automatically eliminated so that the picture fills the whole screen.
