It also includes a multi-brand TV remote control for one-remote operation of most major brands of TVs.
The DVP-SR500H DVD Upscaling player is intended for consumers who own HDTVs and appreciate quality as near HD as possible but are budget-conscious. This may include families looking for a second DVD player for another room in their home.
Upscaling DVD player via HDMI connection - Upscaling DVD Player (via HDMI; cable sold separately) makes your existing DVDs look better on your HDTV by improving the picture quality to near high definition.
Meets ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency - Many home audio and video devices can use significant power, even when turned off and in standby mode. The DVP-SR500H, however, was built for energy efficiency.
Multi-brand TV remote control - Switching back and forth between remote controls while watching television or a movie is a hassle. The remote control included with the DVP-SR500H allows you to operate most major brands of television and this DVD player.
Multiple format disc playback - View movies and photos and listen to music using this DVD player with multiple format playback. The DVP-SR500H supports DVD/DVD-RW/DVD-R/DVD+RW/DVD+R DL and CD-R/CD-RW discs plays WMA, AAC, LPCM, MPEG (Cyber-shot movie), and JPEG files.
Precision Cinema Progressive technology - Many other DVD players detect image changes at the scan line level; the Sony Precision Cinema Progressive system, however, detects image changes at the pixel level. The picture is more faithful to the source -- whether film or video -- because special algorithms handle the different pixel behavior. The technology also employs separate algorithms to process the moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are virtually free from artifacts.
Precision Drive system - Sony Precision Drive assists in quickly correcting warping and surface layer issues on this DVDs for smooth playback.
Photo TV HD - Bring your photos to life and enjoy highly detailed, Full HD 1920 x 1080p images with the PhotoTV HD mode.
