Pioneer's new DVD players with HDMI outputs and video up-conversion allow viewers to watch and listen to DVDs with exceptional audio and video resolution. It also makes set-up and connection to the rest of A/V components much easier since everything can be connected through a single cable. DivX® Playback All the new Pioneer DVD players allow playback of DivX® files burned on a CD-R/RW/ROM disc. DivX® is a popular media technology including compressed digital video which ensures a high compression rate and fast transfer speed without appreciably compromising the picture quality. What's more, the DV-696AV-S is an official DivX® Ultra Certified product. This means the unit lets you enjoy DivX® files with interactive features like DVD Video - including menus, selectable subtitle languages/audio tracks, and so on. Dual PureCinema Progressive Scan Dual progressive scan, the advanced version of the Pioneer's trademark technology, enables the DVD players to provide smooth, natural, film-like images free of bothersome artefacts like jagged edges on moving objects.
