PRODVD-VIDEO: THE MEDIUM OF CHOICE FOR
PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMERS
The professional DVD player provides all the advantages of
DVD-video and more. Additional control devices like for
example touch screens or wired controls can easily be
connected. Next to that the Professional player is featured
with NVRAM memory to store and retrieve results or settings.
This player is the ideal medium for kiosk, training or business
presentation applications.
Video was never like this before! Perfect digital, studio-quali-
ty pictures with truly 3-dimensional digital multichannel
audio. Story sequences viewed on screen from your own
choice of camera angle.
Language barriers are broken down by sound tracks in as
many as eight languages, plus subtitling - if available on disc
- in as many as 32. And whether you watch DVD-Video on
wide-screen or regular TV, you always see it the way it was
meant to be seen.

DIGITAL VIDEO
DVD-Video uses state-of-the-art MPEG2 data compression
technology to register an entire movie on a single 5-inch disc.
DVD's variable bit-rate compression, running at up to 9.8
Mbits/second, captures even the most complex pictures in
their original quality.
The crystal-clear digital pictures have a horizontal resolution
of over 500 lines, with 720 pixels (picture elements) to each
line. This resolution is more than double that of VHS, superior
to Laser Disc, and entirely comparable to the digital masters
made in recording studios.
DVD-Video discs conform to either the PAL or NTSC video
standard. This dual-standard player can play both types and
present them in the best possible way on your multistandard
TV screen.
As the universal video system of the future, DVD-Video offers
optimum viewing on any TV screen.
