Sony DVPNS725P

Sony's Resolution

Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive Technology detects image changes at the pixel level, rather than the scan line level of many DVD players. The picture from this Sony system is more faithful to the source, whether film or video, because separate, optimized algorithms are used to handle the differing pixel behavior. Separate algorithms are also used to process the moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are free from motion artifacts. The Full 3-2 reverse conversion is far more accurate than the more common, inexpensive "frame memory" designs found in lesser players. On two out of every five video frames, these simpler systems will combine information from different film frames which results in blurred movement. Sony's 3-2 reverse conversion process preserves the integrity of the original film frames for images that are clearer and more accurate to the original film. That means what you see on your screen at home is even more like what you would see on the big screen.

A Conversion Experience & Overcoming Limitations

You'll be singing the praises of Sony's dedicated 12-bit, 108MHz D/A (digital/analog) converter the first time you watch a movie on this amazing DVD player. The digital to analog converter produces several times the fine gradations in the luminance (Y) channel and twice the fine gradations in each of the color channels. So, you get beautiful rendition of colors and gray scale from the deepest black to the brightest highlights. Sony DVD players have a solid reputation for their ability to play discs that are warped, dusty or otherwise less than perfect. Now, with the Precision Drive 2 system, Sony players can track even better. The system uses dynamic tilt compensation to give you the best performance from every disc you play. This improved mechanism is simpler, faster and able to correct for an even wider range of disc imperfections.

Block Noise Reduction

One characteristic limitation of DVD's MPEG compression system is "block noise". This is the tendency of delicately shaded picture areas to be rendered as solid rectangles of color. Instead of a continuous contour of color fading softly into shadow on the cheek of an actress, you see subtle blocks of approximately correct color. Sony controls the problem on the vertical axis with Block Noise Reduction. Because the player knows where the block borders are, it identifies and suppresses block noise. The result is a smoother, more delicately shaded and more lifelike image. Other image enhancing circuitry includes the Digital Video Enhancer that improves contrast and picture detail while also controlling unwanted artifacts that degrade picture quality. Digital Video Equalization provides factory preset and adjustable settings that you can use to digitally adjust your DVD player for optimum video quality.

This Machine Remembers

The world doesn't stop just because you want to watch a movie. That's why we have "pause" buttons. Sometimes you need more than a brief pause and when you do make it back to your movie, you don't remember where you left off. The multi-disc resume feature in this intelligent DVD player stores the point where you stopped the disc (for up to 6 discs) and resumes playback at that point the next time you put the disc in your player. The custom parental control also has memory for up to 40 discs, allowing parents to "block" certain DVDs from being viewed by those who don't have the necessary clearance. Sony's SmoothScan and SmoothSlow modes give you remarkably clean playback in slow motion and scan speeds.

We Have You Virtually Surrounded

Even if you don't have surround speakers, TV Virtual Surround modes can generate a convincing surround sound effect. You can choose from several different modes that match your program material and situation. These sound modes are all optimized for use with your television's built-in speakers.

Included With Purchase

Remote control, AA Battery x 2, AV cable.
