Product Specifications

Sony combined a wealth of popular features to create the DVPS360, their most affordable DVD player. Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS output produce the ultimate surround sound experience, and Sony's exclusive SmoothScan SmoothSlow picture search modes allow for distortion-free images when searching for specific scenes. DTS Compatibility allows the DVD player to pickup and output DTS (Digital Theater System) 5.1 channel audio signals for decoding by DTS-decoding receivers. The sound of DTS is three-dimensional with a wide dynamic range and a minimum of compression artifacts. Sony's second-generation transport design includes Active Tilt Control, a Dynamic Focus system and an Advanced DSP Servo system for superb tracking of disc imperfections. Also has High-Speed Stepping Motor for fast track and chapter access. 96 kHz/24-bit Audio D/A Converter maximizes DVD and CD audio performance capability, providing smoother, less digitized transitions, and richer sonic texture. When using the DVD player with only two front speakers, Virtual Surround Sound technology creates a surround-sound effect by incorporating a portion of the center-surround information into the left and right stereo signals. DVP-S360 uses a 32-bit RISC microprocessor for superior scan quality in Frame Advance, Slow Motion (at 1/10 and 1/5 speed) and High-Speed Search (at 2X, 10X and 30X speed) - all in forward and reverse. A refinement of SmoothScan processing allows for enhanced slow speed performance in forward and reverse. CD Text Function displays song and album titles on TV screen and on Front Panel Display.
