Get Sharper, Clearer Pictures with HDMI 1080p Upscaling
Be impressed with this Philips DVD player with HDMI digital video and audio connection. Step into another home entertainment arena as you immerse yourself in High Definition video (720p/1080i/1080p).
Feast your eyes on images that are razor sharp and a match for reality. An intelligent algorithm, CinemaPlus goes right down to each pixel in each frame, analysing it before optimising sharpness and colour stability. The results are obvious - you get to see more details, pictures become crystal clear and everything looks superbly natural. Movie nights will never be the same again.
HDMI 1080p upscaling 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 multi-channel audio, without conversions to analogue - delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.
