Viewing images on a TV
Connecting to a high definition TV
Images recorded with HD (high definition) image quality are played back with HD (high
definition) image quality. Images recorded with SD (standard definition) image quality are
played back with SD (standard definition) image quality.
When connecting with the component A/V cable (sold separately)
If you connect only component video plugs, audio signals are not output. Connect the white
and red plugs to output audio signals.
The output settings switches automatically according to the images played back. Therefore,
the image may be distorted when switching the mode on the connected TV.
If you record movies in HD (high definition) image quality [1920 × 1080 30P], [1280 ×
720 60P], or [1280 × 720 30P] while connecting the camera to high definition TV with a
component cable, the image output to the TV is shown in SD image quality.
When connecting to your TV via a VCR
Connect your camera to the LINE IN input on the VCR using the A/V connecting cable. Set
the input selector on the VCR to LINE (VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, etc.).
When your TV is monaural (When your TV has only one audio input jack)
Connect the yellow plug of the A/V connecting cable to the video input jack and connect the
white (left channel) or red (right channel) plug to the audio input jack of your TV or VCR.
