Analog: Sound that has not been turned
into numbers. Analog sound varies, while
digital sound has specific numerical values.
These jacks send audio through two
channels, the left and right.
Aspect ratio: The ratio of vertical and
horizontal sizes of a displayed image. The
horizontal vs. vertical ratio of
conventional TVs. is 4:3, and that of widescreens is 16:9.
AUDIO OUT Jacks: Jacks on the back
of the DVD System 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 seconds, 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.
Clear voice: It enables the digital sound
processor to extract the voice dynamics
in movie dialog on all 5 surround
channels without compromizing on the
location accuracy and the width of the
surround sound.
Component Video Out Jacks: Jacks
on the back of the DVD System that send
high-quality video to a TV that has
Component Video In jacks (R/G/B,
Y/Pb/Pr, etc.)
Disc menu: A screen display prepared
for allowing selection of images, sounds,
subtitles, multi-angles, etc recorded on a
DVD.
Digital: Sound that has been converted

from Dolby Digital. The formats were
developed by different companies.
MP3: A file format with a sound data
compression system. “MP3” is the
abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts
Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio Layer 3. By
using MP3 format. one CD-R or CD-RW
can contain about 10 times as much data
volume as a regular CD can.
Multichannel: DVD is specified to have
each sound track constitute one sound
field. Multichannel refers to a structure of
sound tracks having three or more
channels.
Parental level: A function of the DVD
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 will be prohibited if the
software’s level is higher than the user-set
level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A
system for converting analog sound signal
to digital signal for later processing, with
no data compression used in conversion.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the
signal recorded on video CDs or SVCDs
for controlling reproduction. By using
menu screens recorded on a Video CD
or SVCD that supports PBC, you can
enjoy interactive-type software as well as
software having a search function.
Plug and Play: After power up, the
system will prompt the user to proceed
with the automatic installation of radio
stations by simply pressing the PLAY
button on the main unit.
Progressive Scan: It displays all the
horizontal lines of a picture at one time,
as a signal frame. This system can convert
the interlaced video from DVD into
progressive format for connection to a
progressive display. It dramatically
increases the vertical resolution. A
progressive-scan TV is needed to receive
progressive scan output from the player.
Region code: A system for allowing
discs to be played back only in the region
designated beforehand. This unit will only
play discs that have compatible region
codes. You can find the region code of
your unit by looking on the product label.
Some discs are compatible with more
than one region (or ALL regions.)
S-Video: Produces a clear picture by
sending separate signals for the luminance
and the color. You can use S-Video only if
your TV has S-Video In jack.
Sampling Frequency: Frequency of
sampling data when analog data is
converted to digital data Sampling
frequency numerically represents how
many time the original analog signal is
sampled per second.
Seating control: It gives the user a
perfect sound and movie experience
anywhere in the room, providing
maximum flexibility and real total
immersion because the user can choose
their preferred seat.
Super Audio CD (SACD): This audio
format is based upon the current CD
standards but includes a greater amount of
information which provides higher quality
sound. There are three types of discs: single
layer, double layer and hybrid discs. The
hybrid disc contains both standard audio
CD and Super Audio CD information.
Surround: A system for creating
realistic three-dimensional sound fields
full of realism by arranging multiple
speakers around the listener.
