Digital Cinema Sound (DCS) is the concept name of the surround technology for home theatre developed by Sony. DCS uses the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) technology to reproduce the sound characteristics of an actual cinema cutting studio in Hollywood. When played at home, DCS creates a powerful theatre effect that mimics the artistic combination of sound and action as envisioned by the movie director.
The international standard for video signals, x.v.Colour defines a far wider colour space than conventional sRGB, which can only display a small portion of what the human eye can perceive. In fact, x.v.Colour can display virtually the entire colour palette, supporting 1.8 times the colour coverage of existing HD TV signals. You’ll enjoy more accurate, natural and vivid colours that truly come to life.
Note: For the x.v.Colour (xvYCC) feature to function, the entire video production chain (camera-editing-format-player-display) must be compatible.
24P True Cinema
Movies at the cinema have a distinctive silver-screen quality because they’re filmed at a rate of 24 frames per second (fps). But since most other DVD players convert 24fps movies to fit the NTSC (equivalent to 60fps) or PAL (equivalent to 50fps) formats, you couldn’t truly recreate that cinema experience at home… until now! 24P True Cinema outputs movies in 24fps – just as the director intended them to be seen – so the thrill you enjoy in theatres can now be yours right in your own home.
