Toshiba DVD/DVR Digital Media Server - SDH400
Technology & Benefits
DVD and TiVo Technology
Super ColorStream Pro? Component Video Outputs
These outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped progressive scan TV. When this connection is utilized with today's HD-compatible sets, typical NTSC artifacts?like video noise, dot crawl, and flicker?are virtually eliminated, resulting in a low-noise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity. A special digital filter enables four times oversampling of the Y, Pr, and Pb signals while the 54mHz video clock speed processes the entire video signal, extending the resolution to 540 lines.
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.

Video Black Level Expansion and PLUGE
Grayscale in video is measured and tracked on a scale of 0 (black) to 100 (white) IRE units. In NTSC video we have traditionally assigned the 7.5 IRE value as being the black cutoff in a picture. The EXPANDED mode in the "Video Black Level Setting" menu enables Toshiba DVD players to output a 0 IRE signal for richer, deeper black tones in every image.
(E.A.M.) Enhanced Audio Mode
This feature includes three modes: NORMAL (off mode), 3-D (virtual surround sound enhancement from multichannel content), and DIALOGUE Expander (which enhances center channel [dialogue] frequencies during playback of multichannel content). Benefit of DIALOGUE: Great for ?late night? listening when volume levels are low but dialogue intellibibility is of concern.
181-Channel NTSC Tuner
For easy off-air recording and Auto Channel setup.
Power Picture Zoom
This interactive feature allows you to select an area of the picture you want to zoom in on and magnify it. Enhanced digital processing during moving video or freeze-frame playback produces superior color fidelity and resolution, even when you're zoomed in. Also can be used to expand letterbox-only films to increase the viewable area on-screen.
