DVD Player

Instant Streaming Content
Some devices can connect to the internet for instant streaming content. This feature allows you to receive instant access to different media sources such as Netflix, YouTube, Blockbuster On Demand and more when connected to the network. For more information on the specific content and what they offer, please see the product description.
WiFi Capable
This feature allows devices to download new software updates, stream video content through various services, or connect with BD-Live features wirelessly when connected with a compatible wireless link.
BD-Live
This is an expanded feature in a Blu-ray player that allows the viewer extended online features such as internet chats, and games or even downloadable features like quizzes and even movie trailors.
Digital Noise Reduction

This means that the device is able to reduce more noise with the help of a digital processor.

It is a system that tries to filter out “digital noise”, aka picture distortion. This distortion can occur for many different reasons. Anything from the very power used to operate the device to the lights (LED) on the front of the player itself.

x.v. Color
A new color space that allows compatible units to view up to 1.8 times as many colors as sRGB (the previous standard that began in 1996)
3:2 Pulldown

This means that the devices will enhance the framerate of older videos to play smoothly on the display set.

Film is usually shot in 24 frames per second with 2 fields per frame. One field for the even lines, and one for the odd. The standard NTSC broadcast is 30 frames per second. To achieve this frames have to be created to sustain a smooth image. So out of every 4 frames, a 5th frame is created by combining opposite fields of consecutive frames, in turn creating a new frame so the outcome will be 30 frames from 24.

Example:
AA|BB|CC|DD to AA|BB|BC|CD|DD

24p Playback
This means that the device will allow the media to play at it's original recorded framerate. It is a feature that allows the video image to be transferred as it was originally recorded, at 24 frames per second. This feature ensures that you will be watching “movie theater” quality without any “judder” that would occur with some 3:2 pulldown.
