PAL playback on NTSC TV:

Most other region free players will play back all region discs but if the disc is Pal you will not be able to play it on a normal American (NTSC) TV. This dvd player will play any disc on an NTSC (American) TV. Unlike many DVD players with a built in converter, this DVD player will not stretch Pal widescreen DVD movies when playing on an NTSC TV.
True hardware Progressive Scan:
The dvd player has true progressive scan which provides best picture quality into a HDTV. Also has 3/2 Pull Down. Also provides excellent picture quality on a regular non HDTV. Uses a high end hardware progressive scan chip. This DVD player may be set to output a progressive scan or interlaced video signal from component video output. Instead of splitting each video frame into two sequential fields like interlaced scan, progressive scan displays the entire frame in a single sweep. Where a standard DVD player's 480i output displays 30 frames (60 fields) per second, a progressive-scan player's 480p output displays 60 full frames per second. Progressive-scan picture quality is more film-like, with more fine detail and less flicker.
