Listening

caution

L_G

Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume.

Hearing experts advise against continuous extended play.

If you experience use.

a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue

Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle.

It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.

You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Even if your headphones or earphones are the open-air type designed to let you hear outside sounds, don't turn up the volume so high that you can't hear what's around you.

Sound can be deceiving.

Over time your hearing "comfort level" adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds "normal" can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.

Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level:

• Start your volume control at a low setting.

• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

• Leave it there.

Cautions

• To avoid draining your car battery

Disconnect the Car DC Adaptor from the cigarette lighter after use. The Car DC Adaptor continues to consume some power even if it is not being used, and if a battery pack is attached to this unit, it will start recharging which uses more power.

Do not use the Car DC Adaptor for long periods when the engine is not running.

• Leave some slack in the cord.

• No responsibility will be taken for damage that occurs due to faulty installation.

Glossary

AVCHD

AVCHD is a new format (standard) for high definition video cameras that can be used to record and play high-resolution

HD images.

BD-J

Some BD-Video discs contain Java applications, and these applications are called BD-J. You can enjoy various interactive features in addition to playing normal video.

Bitstream

This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g.,

5.1 channel) before it is decoded into its various channels.

BONUSVlEW (Final Standard Profile)

This is a BD-Video (BD-ROM Profile 1 version 1.1 ) that supports the new functions such as Picture-in-picture and

Secondary Audio, etc.

Dolby Digital

This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby

Laboratories.

Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can also be multi-channel audio.

Dolby Digital Plus

Multi-channel audio and higher audio quality is made possible using Dolby Digital Plus. BD-Video supports up to 7.1 channel output.

Dolby TrueHD

Dolby TrueHD is a very high quality audio format that reproduces the studio master audio. BD-Video supports up to

7.1 channel output.

Down-mixing

This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some discs into fewer channels.

DTS (Digital Theater Systems)

This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are possible.

DTS-HD

DTS-HD is a high-quality, sophisticated audio format used in movie theaters.

Previous DTS Digital Surround-compatible equipment can play DTS-HD as DTS Digital Surround audio.

BD-Video supports up to 7.1 channel output.

DTS-HD High Resolution Audio

This is a signal format achieved by improving the previous

DTS, DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 formats.

It is compatible with sampling frequency 96 kHz/48 kHz. BD-Video supports up to

7.1 channel output.

DTS-HD Master Audio

This is a Iossless audio format and compatible with 96 kHz/

7.1 ch or less. In addition, faithful reproduction of the master audio is enabled using Iossless audio encoding technology.

BD-Video supports up to 7.1 channel output.

Dynamic range

Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion occurs.

Dynamic range compression means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds. This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialog clearly.

Film and video

DVD-Video 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.

Film: Recorded at 24 frames per second. (Recorded at 30 frames per second as well). Generally appropriate for motion picture films.

Video: Recorded at 30 frames/6O fields per second.

Generally appropriate for TV drama programs or animation.

Folder

This is a place on the disc or SD card where groups of data are stored together. Additional folders can be created within folders, and you can make detailed classifications depending on the folder structure.

(_ 27)

Frames and fields

Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see on your television.

Each frame consists of two fields.

Frame Field Field

• A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but picture quality is generally better.

• A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but there is no blurring.

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)

This is a system used for compressing/decoding color still pictures.

If you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras, etc., the data will be compressed to 1/10-1/100 of its original size. The benefit of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the degree of compression.

LPCM (Linear PCM)

This is a type of PCM format.

These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.

MPEG2 (Moving Picture Experts

Group)

A standard for efficiently compressing and expanding color video.

MPEG2 is a compression standard used for DVD and satellite based digital broadcasting.

MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)

An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately one tenth of its size without any significant loss of audio quality.

PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)

This is one format for converting analog audio into digital audio,

Picture-in-picture

This is a function of BD-Video that plays the primary video and secondary video simultaneously.

For instance, the function

is

capable of playing the original movie as the primary video while playing video commentary from the film director on a small screen as a secondary video.

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.
