This DVD video player from DENON is the first to use the Progressive Converter developed by Silicon Image, ensuring greater accuracy and speed in I/P conversion.

With these advanced video image technologies, the DVD-2800 is able to reproduce high-quality pictures on Progressive-compliant monitors and projectors. The audio circuitry masterfully complements the superior picture quality with its 96-kHz, 24-bit D/A converter, HDCD decoder, and parts strictly selected for high sound quality, providing you with stunning sonic transparency and power. The DVD-2800 also plays MP3 files downloaded from the Internet and other sources. Simply record these files onto a CD-R/RW disc via your computer, then play the disc in the DVD-2800.DVD-2800 can pass below black video via the progressive and the interlaced outputs for correct monitor setup and optimum picture quality.
