Toshiba SD-V593 Progressive Scan DVD/VCR Combination with HDMI

DVD upconversion via HDMI™ Video Upconversion - 720p/1080i: HDMI™ can support uncompressed digital video up to HDTV resolution. Thus the player makes use of this conduit by up-converting the standard DVD picture resolution of 720p or 1080i. This makes a DVD player with an HDMI™ connection the perfect match for today's digital televisions. And because this conversion is performed in the player, the signal remains free frome excessive digital to analog artifacts.

JPEG Viewer: Enables the display of digital photographs captured in the JPEG format. Simply load the CD with your favorite photos and create custom slide shows with a few simple clicks of the player's remote control.

HD JPEG: HD JPEG will provide the ability to view Megapixel images in their enhanced resolution when using HDMI™ and an HDTV display device

4-Head/19-Micron System: Offers superior slow motion effects over conventional 2 head VCR designs. Toshiba's 19-Micron Heads match precisely the width of the SP and EP azimuths and read only the signal recorded on each azimuth (not adjoining tracks). The benefit is significantly enhanced SLP and EP performance so good, it rivals the quality of tapes recorded in the SP Mode.

Digital Cinema Progressive (3:2 Pulldown): Delivers the smoothest, most film-like images to any progressive scan television, such as an HD-compatible one, and ensures maximum resolution.

VHS Hi-Fi Stereo: Delivers the highest quality stereo sound from tapes recorded with a high fidelity soundtrack. This provides the ability for the internal Dolby® ProLogic II surround sound decoder to reproduce the surround sound content encoded on the tapes.

MTS Stereo/SAP with dbx®: Full broadcast stereo sound quality, plus access to bilingual or secondary audio signals.

WMA & MP3 Playback: Play recordable Compact Discs (CD-R & CD-RW) with music stored in either the Windows Media™ Audio or MP3 file formats can be enjoyed.

Virtual Surround Sound: Provides a simulated surround sound effect when using two stereo speakers. Convenient when playing DVD films with home theaters not equipped with multi-channel playback compatibility.

9-in-2 Card Slot: 9-In-2 Media card playback, will accept Secure Digital™, Mini Secure Digital™, Memory Stick™, Memory Stick Pro™, Memory Stick Duo™, Memory Stick PRO Duo™, XD Picture Card™, Compact Flash® and MultiMediaCard™. For JPEG, WMA and MP3 files.

Commercial Skip: After a program has been recorded, pressing the SKIP button once during playback will automatically advance the tape 30-seconds forward bypassing recorded commercials. Pressing the skip button on the remote again will advance the recorded tape for another 30-seconds for a total of 60-seconds (30 sec x 6 Maximum).

Auto Clock Set: This feature ensures that your VCR never blinks "12:00" again. A special data stream in your local broadcast source (where available) automatically sets the clock display and keeps it accurate—even when time changes to daylight saving and back. Auto Clock Set also provides on-screen displays of each channel’s call letters and ID.

HDMI™ (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): This single cable connection ensures that all signals remain in their pure digital form and secure by use of High Definition Copy Protection (HDCP) regardless of signal output resolution.

ColorStream® Component Video Output: Offers a more than 200% improvement in color compared to an S-Video output jack. These outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped TV. When this connection is utilized, typical NTSC artifacts

Optical TosLink® Digital Audio Outputs: Connects easily to a wide variety of receivers and signal decoders. It is not affected by RF interference.
