BLU-RAY/HD DVD PLAYER
New High-Definition DVD Formats Deliver 1080p Video But Only with the Right Connection.
New Blue-ray Disc™ and HD DVD™ players have multiple video connections, but only one can deliver
stunning 1080p video. To watch your new HD DVD and Blu-ray discs in the highest possible resolution,
you need to use an HDMI™ connection.
HDMI Version 1.3 is also the ultimate connection for surround sound. It supports the newest
high-resolution surround sound formats, including Dolby® True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio™.
• HDMI is the best digital audio/video connection available today, supporting ultimate 1080p video
with stunning 12-bit color and lossless 5.1/7.1 surround sound. If your AV receiver doesn’t feature
HDMI, use its component video connections.
- Component video supports 720p/1080i high definition video and 480p enhanced definition video,
also referred to as progressive scan.
- For 5.1/7.1 surround sound without HDMI, use your components’ fiber optic or digital
coax connections.
