Progressive scan: Get great-quality DVD viewing for a great price. The Panasonic DVDS1S lets you enjoy the quality of progressive scanning (480p resolution) when used in combination with an enhanced-definition (480p) or high-definition (720p, 1080i, 1080p) TV. Progressive scanning creates images that are smooth and crisp—like film— without the flickering or motion blur that can occur with non-progressive (interlaced) players. Without an EDTV or HDTV, you can still enjoy regular-quality DVD playback.
Simulated surround sound: For great movie quality, you need great movie sound. The DVDS1S player offers audio enhancements to bring the theater feel to your home. Advanced Surround simulates surround sound, allowing you to take advantage of Dolby Digital. 5.1-channel discs. The player also includes Dialogue Enhancer that boosts spoken audio during noisy scenes, so you won’t miss anything that’s being said.
Multi-format recording and playback: Plays DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-R (dual layer), DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R (dual layer) and DVD+RW as well as CD (CDDA), HDCD, and CD-R/RW (including MP3 and JPEG).
A/V versatility: Cable connections include component video out (Y, PB, PR), S-video out and digital audio out—all the connections you need to enjoy outstanding, progressive-scan DVD.
