Initial IDM-1731 7-Inch Portable DVD Player with Adapter
Watch movies, listen to MP3 CDs, or review camcorder footage--all from one portable device. Initial Technology's IDM-1731 puts a world of entertainment at your fingertips. The built-in seven-inch widescreen TFT (thin-film-transistor) LCD displays favorite movies in their native aspect ratios, and the player's onboard antiskip protection--a surprisingly rare feature in portable DVD players--paves the way for media enjoyment during more active uses.

Connections include a composite-video output (switchable as an input) and a switchable analog audio input/output. A coaxial digital-audio output lets you hook the player up with an audio/video receiver and multichannel speaker system to enjoy immersive DTS or Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround from discs (coaxial digital-audio interconnect not included). The unit gets about 2.5 hours of playback from the supplied rechargeable lithium battery.
