Glossary
DivX
DivX is a popular media technology created by DivX, Inc.
DivX media files contain highly compressed video with
high visual quality that maintains a relatively small file
size.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. This
unit can determine which type has been used, then uses
the most suitable method of progressive output.
RQT8509
Glossary/Safety precautions
Film:
20
Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL discs) or
24 frames per second (NTSC discs). (NTSC discs
recorded at 30 frames per second as well).
Generally appropriate for motion picture films.
Video: Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second (PAL
discs) or 30 frames/60 fields per second (NTSC
discs). Generally appropriate for TV drama
programs or animation.
MPEG4
A compression system for use on mobile devices or a
network, that allows highly efficient recording at a low bit
rate.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of
sound wave (analog signal) samples taken at set periods
into digits (digital encoding). Sampling frequency is the
number of samples taken per second, so larger numbers
mean more faithful reproduction of the original sound.

Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct
sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity, and excessive
vibration. These conditions can damage the cabinet and
other components, thereby shortening the unit’s service
life. Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can
overload the unit and cause a fire. Do not use a DC
power source. Check the source carefully when setting
the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and
not damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can
cause fire or electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place
heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling
the AC mains lead can cause electric shock. Do not
handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the unit. This can
cause electric shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause
electric shock or malfunction. If this occurs, immediately
disconnect the unit from the power supply and contact
your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They
contain flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into
the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is
interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any
other problem that is not covered in these instructions
occurs, disconnect the AC mains lead and contact your
dealer or an authorized service center. Electric shock or
damage to the unit can occur if the unit is repaired,
disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the
power source if it is not to be used for a long time.
