Philips DVDR3506 Recorder

With Progressive Scan and 1080p HDMI, the DVDR3506 provides crystal clear pictures from DVDs and from signals received on its built-in SDTV digital receiver.

Progressive Scan component video for optimized image quality
Progressive Scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising the odd lines to the screen first, followed by the field with the even lines, both fields are written at one time. A full image is created instantaneously, using the maximum resolution. At such a speed, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.

1080p HDMI upconverts to high definition for sharper images
1080p HDMI upconversion delivers images that are crystal clear. Movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in true high definition resolution - ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by "p" in "1080p') eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multichannal audio, without conversions to analog - delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.

Dual Media conveniently records on both DVD+R/RW & DVD-R/RW
Philips DVD Recorders support ‘dual media’ recording - the ability to create recordings on DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW discs. Now you can buy any disc and the Philips recorder will always create fully compatible recordings, which can be played by any DVD player.

i.LINK digital input for perfect digital camcorder copies
Also known as IEEE 1394 and FireWire, i.Link carries all audio and video signals via a single cable digitally, with no loss in picture and sound quality. With i.Link digital video input, you can copy your home videos in their original digital picture quality.

Plays DivX, MP3, WMA and JPEG digital camera photos
Play virtually any media format you want - whether they be DivX, MP3s, WMA or JPEGs. Experience the unbeatable convenience of great playability, and the luxury of sharing media files on your TV or home theater system - in the comfort of your living room.

Built-in SDTV Tuner for digital television reception

HDMI digital output for easy connection with only one cable
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. It is a direct digital connection that can carry digital HD video as well as digital multichannel audio. By eliminating the conversion to analog signals it delivers perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise. HDMI is fully backward-compatible with (Digital Video Interface) DVI.
