About DVD VIDEO software types and
the conversion method
The DVD VIDEO software can be
divided into 2 types:
Film-based software
Film-based software is derived from
film and displays the images at 24
frames per second.
Video-based software
Video-based software is derived from
TV, such as dramas and sitcoms and
displays images at 30 frames or 60
fields per second.
Some DVD VIDEO contains both types
of software. In order for these images to
appear in your TV naturally when the
video output is in progressive format, the
progressive signals need to be converted
to match your DVD VIDEO software.
Note
There would be no image on your TV or the
image is not clear if your setting does not
match your TV or connection.

on for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
On heat buildup
Heat buildup on the unit during operation is
normal and is not cause for alarm.
Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the
cabinet may have become hot.
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
The front speaker is magnetically shielded and
can be installed near a TV. Color irregularity
may still be observed, however on some types
of TV screens. In this situation, turn off the
TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back
on. Place the right speaker on the right side of
the unit and the left speaker on the left side of
the unit. If there is no improvement, move the
speakers far away from the TV.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: If you leave a still video image
or on-screen display image displayed on
your TV for an extended period of time via
this system, you risk permanent damage
to your TV screen. Projection TVs are
especially susceptible to this.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring
powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine,
or alcohol.

Bluetooth wireless
technology
Bluetooth wireless technology is a shortrange wireless technology linking digital
devices, such as personal computers and
digital still cameras. Using the Bluetooth
wireless technology, you can operate the
units involved within a range of about 10
meters.
The Bluetooth wireless technology is
commonly used between two devices,
but a single device can be connected to
multiple devices.
You do not need wires to get connected
as you do with a USB connection, and
you do not need to place the devices face
to face as you do with wireless infrared
technology. You can use the technology
with one Bluetooth device in your bag
or pocket.
Bluetooth wireless technology is a global
standard supported by thousands of
companies. These companies produce
products that meet the global standard.
Supported Bluetooth version and
profiles

84GB
Effective communication range
Bluetooth devices should be used within
approximately 10 meters (unobstructed
distance) of each other. The effective
communication range may become
shorter under the following conditions.
When a person, metal object, wall
or other obstruction is between the
devices with a Bluetooth connection
Locations where a wireless LAN is
installed
Around microwave ovens that are in
use
Locations where other electromagnetic
waves occur
Effects of other devices
Bluetooth devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11b/g) use the same frequency
band (2.4 GHz). When using your
Bluetooth device near a device with
wireless LAN capability, electromagnetic
interference may occur. This could result
in lower data transfer rates, noise, or
inability to connect. If this happens, try
the following remedies:
Try connecting this system and
Bluetooth mobile phone or Bluetooth
device when you are at least 10
meters away from the wireless LAN
equipment.
Turn off the power to the wireless LAN
equipment when using your Bluetooth
device within 10 meters.
Effects on other devices
The radio waves broadcast by this system
may interfere with the operation of some
medical devices. Since this interference
may result in malfunction, always turn
off the power on this system, Bluetooth
mobile phone and Bluetooth device in
the following locations:
In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes,
at gas stations, and any place where
flammable gasses may be present

Glossary
Album
Section of a music or picture piece on
a DATA CD or DATA DVD containing
MP3 audio tracks, JPEG image files.
Chapter
Subdivision of a title on a DVD VIDEO.
A title is composed of several chapters.
Dolby Digital
This sound format for movie theaters is
more advanced than Dolby Surround
Pro Logic. In this format, the surround
speakers output stereo sound with
an expanded frequency range and a
subwoofer channel for deep bass is
independently provided. This format is
also called “5.1” because the subwoofer
channel is counted as 0.1 channel (since
it functions only when a deep bass effect
is needed). All six channels in this format
are recorded separately to realize superior
channel separation. Furthermore, since
all the signals are processed digitally, less
signal degradation occurs.
DTS
Digital audio compression technology
that the Digital Theater Systems, Inc.
developed. This technology conforms
to 5.1-channel surround. The surround
channel is stereo and there is discrete
subwoofer channel in this format. DTS
provides the same 5.1 discrete channels
of high quality digital audio. The good
channel separation is realized because the
all channel data is recorded discrete and
processed in digital.
86GB
DVD VIDEO
A disc that contains up to 8 hours of
moving pictures even though its diameter
is the same as an AUDIO CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and
single-sided DVD VIDEO, at 4.7 GB
(Giga Byte), is 7 times that of an AUDIO
CD. Furthermore, the data capacity of a
dual-layer and single-sided DVD VIDEO
is 8.5 GB, a single-layer and double-sided
DVD VIDEO 9.4 GB, and a dual-layer
and double-sided DVD VIDEO 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2
format, one of the worldwide standards
for digital compression technology. The
picture data is compressed to about 1/40
of its original size. The DVD VIDEO
also uses variable rate coding technology
that changes the data to be allocated
according to the status of the picture.
The audio data is recorded in Dolby
Digital as well as in PCM, allowing you to
enjoy more realistic audio presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions
such as the multi-angle, multilingual, and
Parental Control functions are provided
with the DVD VIDEO.
DVD-RW
A DVD-RW is a recordable and
rewritable disc that is the same size as
a DVD VIDEO. The DVD-RW has two
different modes: VR mode and Video
mode. DVD-RWs created in Video
mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO, while discs created in VR (Video
Recording) mode allow the contents to
be programmed or edited.
DVD+RW
A DVD+RW (plus RW) is a recordable
and rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a
recording format that is comparable to
the DVD VIDEO format.
File
A JPEG image file recorded on a DATA
CD or DATA DVD. (“File” is an exclusive
definition for this system.) A single file
consists of a single image.
Film based software, Video based
software
Multilingual function
Several languages for the sound or
subtitles in a picture are recorded on
some DVD VIDEOs.
Parental Control
A function of the DVD VIDEO 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
is completely prohibited, violent scenes
are skipped or replaced with other scenes
and so on.
Playback Control (PBC)
Interlace format (Interlaced scanning)
Progressive format (sequential
scanning)
The Interlace format is the NTSC
standard method for displaying TV
images at 30 frames per second. Each
frame is scanned twice-alternately
between the even numbered scanning
lines and then odd numbered scanning
lines, at 60 times per second.
Multi-angle function
Various angles, or viewpoints of the video
camera, for a scene are recorded on some
DVD VIDEOs.
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version
2.0) to control playback. By using menu
screens recorded on VIDEO CDs with
PBC functions, you can enjoy playing
simple interactive programs, programs
with search functions, and so on.
In contrast to the Interlace format,
the progressive format can reproduce
50  60 frames per second by
reproducing all scanning lines (525
lines for the NTSC system, 625 lines
for PAL system). The overall picture
quality increases and still images, text
and horizontal lines appear sharper. This
format is compatible with the 525 or 625
progressive format.
Continued

Additional Information
DVD VIDEOs can be classified as Film
based or Video based software. Film
based DVD VIDEOs contain the same
images (24 frames per second) that are
shown at movie theaters. Video based
DVD VIDEOs, such as television dramas
or sitcoms, displays images at 30 frames
(or 60 fields) per second.
87GB
Region Code
This system is used to protect copyrights.
A region code is allocated on each DVD
system or DVD VIDEO according to
the sales region. Each region code is
shown on the unit as well as on the disc
packaging. The system can play back
the discs that match its region code. The
system can also play back discs with the
“
” mark. Even when the region code
is not shown on the DVD VIDEO, the
region limit may still be activated.
Scene
On a VIDEO CD with PBC functions,
the menu screens, moving pictures and
still pictures are divided into sections
called “scenes.”
Title
The longest section of a picture or a
music piece on a DVD VIDEO; a movie,
etc., for a picture piece on video software,
or the entire album in audio software.
Track
Section of a picture or a music piece on
a VIDEO CD, CD, or MP3. An album is
composed of several tracks (MP3 only).
88GB
VIDEO CD
A compact disc that contains moving
pictures.
The picture data uses the MPEG 1
format, one of the worldwide standards
for digital compression technology. The
picture data is compressed to about 1/140
of its original size. Consequently, a 12 cm
VIDEO CD can contain up to 74 minutes
of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio
data.
Sounds outside the range of human
hearing are compressed while the
sounds we can hear are not compressed.
VIDEO CDs can hold 6 times the audio
information of conventional AUDIO
CDs.
There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs.
Version 1.1: You can play back only
moving pictures and sounds.
Version 2.0: You can play back highresolution still pictures and enjoy PBC
functions.
This system conforms to both versions.
