Glossary
English
Analog audio: Sound that has not been
turned into numbers. Analog sound is
available when you use the AUDIO LEFT/
RIGHT jacks. These red and white jacks send
audio through two channels, the left and
right.
Aspect ratio: Aspect ratio refers to the
length to height ratio of TV. The ratio of a
standard TV is 4:3, while the ratio of a highdefinition or wide TV is 16:9. The letter box
allows you to enjoy a picture with a wider
perspective on a standard 4:3 screen.
AUDIO OUT jacks: Red and white jacks
on the back of this unit that send audio to
another system (TV, Stereo, etc.).
Bit Rate: ��������������������������������
The amount of data used to hold
a given length of music; measured in kilobits
per second, or kbps. Or, the speed at which
you record. Generally, the higher the bit
rate, or the higher the recording speed, the
better the sound quality. However, higher bit
rates use more space on a disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music
piece on a DVD that are smaller than titles.
A title is composed of several chapters. Each
chapter is assigned a chapter number
enabling you to locate the chapter you want.
Composite video (CVBS): A single video
signal commonly used in most consumer
video products.
DivX: The DivX code is a patent-pending,
MPEG-4 based video compression
technology, developed by DivX Networks,
Inc., that can shrink digital video to sizes
small enough to be transported over the
internet, while maintaining high visual quality.
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for
allowing a selection of images, sounds,
subtitles, multi-angles, etc., recorded on a
DVD.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system
developed by Dolby Laboratories containing
up to six channels of digital audio (front left
and right, surround left and right, center and
subwoofer).
EasyLink: Philips EasyLink uses the HDMI
CEC industry standard protocol to share
functionalities between the unit and its
connected devices. This feature is only
available if you connect this unit to a HDMI
CEC compliant TV with a HDMI cable.
HDMI: High-Definition Multimedia Interface
(HDMI) is a high-speed digital interface that
can transmit uncompressed high definition
video and digital multichannel audio. It
delivers perfect picture and sound quality,
completely free from noise. HDMI is fully
backward-compatible with DVI.
As required by the HDMI standard,
connecting to HDMI or DVI products
without HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection) result in no Video or
Audio output.
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection) is a specification that provides a
secure transmission of digital contents
between different devices (to prevent
unauthorized copyright).
JPEG: A very common digital still picture
format. A still-picture data compression
system proposed by the Joint Photographic
Expert Group, which features small decrease
in image quality in spite of its high
compression ratio. Files are recognized by
their file extension ‘JPG or JPEG’.

dvp3962_3982_37_eng1.indd50
2008-05-052:18:00PM
MP3: A file format with a sound data
compression system. ‘MP3’ is the
abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts
Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio Layer3. By
using the MP3 format, one CD-R or CD-RW
can contain about 10 times more data than a
regular CD.
Title: The longest section of a movie or
music feature on DVD. Each title is assigned
a title number, enabling you to locate the
title you want.
Parental Control: A function of the DVD
to limit playback of the disc by the age of the

country. The limitation varies from disc to
disc; when it is activated, playback will be
prohibited if the software’s level is higher
than the user-set level.
WMA: Windows Media™ Audio. Refers to
an audio compression technology developed
by Microsoft Corporation. WMA data can be
encoded by using Windows Media Player
version 9 or Windows Media Player for

PHILIPS LIMITED WARRANTY
NINETY (90) DAY
WARRANTY COVERAGE:
PHILIPS warranty obligation is limited to the terms set forth
below.
WHO IS COVERED:
Philips warrants the product to the original purchaser or the person receiving the product as a gift against defects in materials and
workmanship as based on the date of original purchase
(“Warranty Period”) from an Authorized Dealer. The original
sales receipt showing the product name and the purchase date
from an authorized retailer is considered such proof.
WHAT IS COVERED:
The Philips warranty covers new products if a defect in material
or workmanship occurs and a valid claim is received by Philips
within the Warranty Period. At its option, Philips will either (1)
repair the product at no charge, using new or refurbished
replacement parts, or (2) exchange the product with a product
that is new or which has been manufactured from new, or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent or most
comparable to the original product in Philips current inventory,
or (3) refund the original purchase price of the product.
Philips warrants replacement products or parts provided under
this warranty against defects in materials and workmanship from
the date of the replacement or repair for ninety (90) days or for
the remaining portion of the original product’s warranty,
whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or
part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property
and the replaced item becomes Philips’ property. When a refund
is given, your product becomes Philips’ property.
Note: Any product sold and identified as refurbished or
renewed carries a ninety (90) day limited warranty.
Replacement product can only be sent if all warranty
requirements are met. Failure to follow all requirements
can result in delay.

data, or other information stored on any media contained within
the product, or any non-Philips product or part not covered by
this warranty. Recovery or reinstallation of programs, data or

This warranty does not apply (a) to damage caused by accident,
abuse, misuse, neglect, misapplication, or non-Philips product, (b)

without warranty of any kind by including refurbished Philips
product sold “AS IS” by some retailers.
