Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth
output channels from 2 channel sources. This is
done using an advanced, high-purity matrix
surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without
adding any new sounds or tonal colorations.
x Movie mode
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television
shows and all programs encoded in Dolby
Surround. The result is enhanced sound field
directionality that approaches the quality of
discrete 5.1-channel sound.
Dolby Surround Pro Logic
As one method of decoding Dolby Surround,
Dolby Surround Pro Logic produces four
channels from 2 channel sound. Compared with
the former Dolby Surround system, Dolby
Surround Pro Logic reproduces left-to-right
panning more naturally and localizes sounds
more precisely. To take full advantage of Dolby
Surround Pro Logic, you should have one pair of
surround speakers and a center speaker. The
surround speakers output monaural sound.
Dolby TrueHD is a lossless coding technology
that supports up to 8 channels of multi-channel
surround sound for the next generation of optical
discs. The reproduced sound is true to the
original source bit-for-bit.
Digital audio compression technology
developed by DTS, Inc. This technology
conforms to 5.1-channel surround. This format
includes a stereo rear channel and a discrete
subwoofer channel. DTS provides the same 5.1
discrete channels of high quality digital audio.
The good channel separation is realized due to
the all channel data being recorded discretely
and processed in digitally.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
Developed as an extension to DTS Digital
Surround format. It supports a maximum
sampling frequency of 96 kHz, and 7.1 multi-
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio has a
maximum transmission rate of 6 Mbps, with
DTS-HD Master Audio
DTS-HD Master Audio has a maximum
transmission rate of 24.5 Mbps, and uses
lossless compression, and DTS-HD Master
Audio corresponds to a maximum sampling
frequency of 192 kHz, and maximum of 7.1ch.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
HDMI is an interface that supports both video
and audio on a single digital connection,
allowing you to enjoy high quality digital
picture and sound. The HDMI specification
supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection), a copy protection
technology that incorporates coding technology
for digital video signals.
The Interlace format is the NTSC standard
method for displaying TV images at 30 frames
per second. Each frame is scanned twice -
alternately between the even numbered scanning
lines and then odd numbered scanning lines, at
60 times per second.
LTH (Low to High)
LTH is a recording system that supports organic
pigment type BD-R.
A function of the BD/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 is completely prohibited, violent
scenes are skipped or replaced with other scenes
and so on.
"PhotoTV HD" allows for highly-detailed
pictures, and photo-like expression of subtle
textures and colors. By connecting Sony
"PhotoTV HD" compatible devices using an
HDMI cable, a whole new world of photos can
be enjoyed in breathtaking Full HD quality. For
instance, the delicate texture of the human skin,
flowers, sand and waves can now be displayed
on a large screen in beautiful photo-like quality.
