Toshiba's SD-6980 offers high-resolution, vibrant video for your DVDs and great sound for your collection of music. Plus, this player has a versatile front-panel memory card slot for viewing your images on TV, with virtually any memory card.
The SD-6980 uses sophisticated processing to upconvert standard DVD video to detailed, near-High-Definition images. These crystal-clear signals are compatible with any TV equipped with a digital video input. In addition to your CDs and MP3s, you can enjoy high-resolution audio from DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD (SACD) discs.
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) - is the first industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video connection. HDMI provides the best interface between a DVD player and compatible products, such as a digital television (DTV). When matched with a compatible TV, this single interconnecting cable combines: Multi-channel audio, uncompressed digital video, intercommunication between devices and simple control Protocols. This single cable connection ensures that all signals remain in their pure digital form and secure by use of High Definition Copy Protection (HDCP) regardless of signal output resolution.
Upconversion to 720p/1080i Resolution - HDMI can support uncompressed digital video up to HDTV level resolution. Thus, the player makes use of this conduit by up-converting the standard DVD picture resolution to nearly HDTV quality with output resolutions of 720p or 1080i. This makes a DVD player with an HDMI connection the perfect match for today's digital televisions. And because this conversion is performed in the player, the signal remains free from excessive digital-to-analog conversion artifacts.
DiVx Home Theater Certified - allows playback of DivX, AVI, and MPEG4 compressed files downloaded from the internet to a personal computer and stored on a CD-R/-RW.
HD JPEG - Thanks to a specialize chipset (MPEG Decoder and Scaler) and the HDMI interface with an HDTV display, Megapixel JPEG images are displayed in their enhanced resolution, versus the image compression that takes place with component interfaces.
DVD-Audio Multi-Channel Playback - Enjoy playback of DVDAudio titles encoded with higher resolution audio than standard CDs and expanded multi-channel effects. Sampling rates can be as high as 24-Bit/192kHz capturing every nuance of the recorded performance. This 'total immersion' experience can include text (song lyrics), still pictures (slide show), and moving visuals (music video).
Super Audio CD Multi-Channel Playback - Offers playback of SA-CD discs recorded using Direct Stream Digital (DSD) encoding technology. The frequency response delivered by DSD is almost five times greater than that delivered by a normal CD. And, up to 70-80 minutes of both stereo and multi-channel DSD content can be encoded on a disc. Enjoy a dynamic range of 120dB compared to 96dB on CD for an exciting audio experience.
5.1 Channel Output with Bass Management - Onboard decoding of Dolby Digital, DVD-Audio, and SA-CD content with control of independent channel parameters including control for bass reproduction. Use this feature to customize the player's multi-channel audio output to your particular home theater design.
