ColorStream Pro and Digital Cinema Progressive
ColorStream Pro component video output allows the highest quality signal to be sent from your DVD player to your TV. When this connection is utilized, typical NTSC artifacts (like video noise and dot crawl) are virtually eliminated, resulting in a low-noise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity. 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.
Outstanding Audio
Coaxial and Optical TosLink Digital Audio Outputs send the audio signal to an audio/video receiver in its digital form, allowing access to the Dolby Digital or DTS sound track encoded on the DVD disc. The Dialogue Expansion system (E.A.M.) offers three audio-enhancing modes: NORMAL; 3-D provides virtual surround sound from two-speaker playback systems via Spatializer N-2-2; and DIALOGUE enhances center channel frequencies during playback of Dolby Digital encoded discs via the analog audio outputs. This is perfect for times when you need to keep the volume low, but still want to hear what is being said.
More To See
With the JPEG Viewer you can display your digital photographs (JPEG format) on your TV. An intuitive onscreen display is there to assist you in creating customizes slideshows with a few simple clicks of the DVD player's remote control. The 16x Power Zoom lets you select an area of the picture and zoom in on it. You can also use the Power Zoom to expand letterbox-only films to increase the viewable area onscreen. Enhanced digital processing known as 3D-DNR reduces random noise in DVD images. It does this by comparing the present frame to the previous and succeeding frames. Unmatched information that is above a certain level is identified as video noise and removed. This improves the picture quality of Video CDs, poorly mastered DVD films, and images viewed in Zoom mode.
More To Hear
The SD4900 is capable of playing DVD-Audio and SACD so you can take advantage of this new format that delivers higher resolution audio than standard CDs and expanded multi-channel effects. The MP3 and WMA audio compatibility of this player expands its functionality to include playback of custom music collections encoded in MP3 or WMA digital audio format onto CD-R or CD-RW media. There are also an increasing number of commercially produced discs now available in these formats that you can enjoy on your new DVD player thanks to its additional decoding abilities.

Code free / Region free:
This dvd player is modified to play all region discs. With this dvd player you can play your favorite movies from any country.

PAL playback on NTSC TV:
This is a special feature available on very few DVD players. 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. 

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. Progressive-scan viewing requires an "HDTV-ready" TV.

Yes, for the music lovers. You can record hours of music on one disc and play it in this dvd player. Hundreds of songs can fit on cd-rom in the MP3 format. You can now hook this up to your music system and listen to hours of music all from one disc.

Variable Aspect Ratios
This CODE FREE Progressive scan  DVD PLAYER  will output video in   4:3, letterbox and 16:9 aspect ratios.

Camera Angles
Scenes that make up a movie may be shot from multiple camera angles, each providing a unique perspective of the program. DVD will allow, at the director's discretion, up to nine different camera angles to be recorded on a disc, enabling the viewer to select the angle they desire. This option will add interactivity to movies, sporting events and instructional videos.

High-Bit/High Sampling Video D/A Converter: This player uses a 12-bit/108MHz video D/A converter video digital-to-analog converter, which reduces digital artifacts for a excellent picture.

Scanning Mode Switch: This switch, located on the rear panel, allows you to choose whether the component video output is progressive scan (480p) or interlaced scan (480i). When you position the switch to the "Remote" position, you can choose progressive scan or interlaced scan from the remote control.

Built-In Dolby Digital/DTS Decoding: This unit is equipped with DTS and Dolby Digital decoders.  5.1 multi-channel analog audio outputs are on the rear of the unit and connect to a compatible amplifier/receiver with 5.1 channel inputs. Although multi-channel audio from a DVD-Audio disc can be heard only when this unit's 5.1 channel outputs are connected to a component with 5.1 channel inputs, this unit can be set to down-mix multi-channel audio to stereo audio for playback through a stereo amplifier, TV or other non-multi-channel receiver.

On-Screen Display: The on-screen menu language can be set to English, French, or Spanish. The display works for DVD video discs and audio CDs, letting you perform numerous functions, including track programming.

MP3 Playback: This unit will play MP3 audio recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 format. Although the front panel display will not show file names, the file names can be shown using the on-screen display.  During MP3 playback, rapid forward/reverse playback is not available, tracks cannot be played back in random or programmed order, and the unit does not output a digital audio signal from the digital outputs.

JPEG Digital Still Playback: This DVD player will playback JPEG digital still files that are on CD-R or CD-RW discs. Like MP3 files, the CD-R and CD-RW discs must be recorded using the ISO 9660 format. While viewing JPEG digital stills, you can zoom in or out on an image, or present them in a slide show fashion. Note: This unit will only recognize baseline JPEG files, which is the format used by digital cameras, camcorders, the web, etc. If you have a disc that contains both MP3 and JPEG files, you have to choose which files you want to work with by going into the menu select and choosing either "MP3" or "JPEG". 

3D Phonic Surround Sound: When playing a Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Digital disc, this feature allows you to obtain a surround sound effect from only two speakers. You may select one of the following modes: Action, Drama, or Theater.

Zoom: The zoom feature allows you to increase or decrease the image size. Each time the zoom button is pressed, the picture sized is doubled (Zoom +) or halved (Zoom --). You may move the picture around the screen while it is enlarged to locate a specific area. You may also zoom in to 1024x or zoom out to 1/8x.

Multi-Angle Display: This function allows you to choose the viewing angle of scenes, which were shot from a number of different angles. Note: This function is limited to DVDs recorded with multiple camera angles.

Digest Function: The Digest function allows the unit to display the opening scene of each title or chapter on a DVD disc, or the opening scene of each track on a Video CD. It will display up to nine chapters at a time.

Video Fine Processor [VFP]: You can adjust the picture character according to the type of programming, picture tone, or personal preferences. There are four presets: NORMAL, CINEMA, USER 1, and USER 2. NORMAL and CINEMA are factory presets and cannot be adjusted. USER 1 and USER 2 have the following adjustable parameters that can be stored:

  • Gamma (Controls the brightness of neutral tints while maintaining the brightness of dark and bright portions)
  • Brightness
  • Contrast
  • Saturation (Controls the color depth of the screen)
  • Tint
  • Sharpness
  • Y Delay (Controls the color gap of the screen)

Speaker Setup: The Speaker Setting page of the menu allows you to indicate the configuration of your speaker system. Normally you would indicate "5.1 CH" when connecting this unit to a 5.1 channel receiver or amplifier. You can, however, fine tune the settings by selecting the "Expert" mode. In the Expert mode, you can set the size, delay and level of the subwoofer and the front, rear and center speakers.

One Touch Replay: During playback of a DVD-Video disc, you can press the Play button to repeat the previous 10 seconds of the current scene or chapter. This is helpful if you miss a line of dialog or lyric from a song and want a quick way to repeat a short section.

Disc Resume/Resume Play: This feature allows you to resume playback of a disc from the point where you last stopped. The stopping point will be saved even if the power is turned off. When activated, the Disc Resume memory can store the resume point for up to 30 discs.

Repeat Play: The "Repeat A-B" function allows you to select any portion of a DVD, Video CD or Audio CD and have it repeat until the unit is manually stopped. When playing a DVD, you can repeat the current title or the current chapter. When playing a Video CD or an Audio CD, you can repeat the current track or the entire disc.

Fast Search: There are five fast-play speeds in both forward and reverse: 2X, 5X, 10X, 20X and 60X the normal speed.

Parental Lock: This function restricts playback of DVD Video discs which contain violent and other types of content, according to the level set by the user. For example, if a movie containing violent scenes supports the parental lock feature, such scenes can be cut or replaced with other scenes. You can select a parental control rating from 0-8, which is protected by a 4-digit password. Discs rated higher than the selected level are restricted.

Digital Audio Output: You can select what kind of signal is passed through the unit's digital outputs. You can select PCM only, Stream/PCM (used when connecting the unit to a component with both DTS and Dolby Digital decoding) or Dolby Digital/PCM (used when connecting this unit to a component with Dolby Digital decoding, but no DTS decoder).

Screen Saver: The unit's screen saver protects against screen burnout by darkening the picture after a static picture is displayed for approximately 5 minutes. This function can be turned on or off through the menu.

Auto Standby: The unit will go into standby mode when it is not being operated or it is sitting in stop mode for a selectable amount of time. You can choose 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or turn the Auto Standby mode off.
