3D Blu-Ray Disc compatibility and playback
SACD/DVD-Audio compatible More Info...
SACD/DVD-Audio compatible

Super Audio Compact Disc (SACD) was created by Sony and Philips as a higher-quality alternative to CD. It utilises DSD (Direct Stream Digital) encoding and can deliver a frequency response almost five times greater than that of normal CD, along with a dynamic range of 120dB compared to that of CD at 96dB. Discs can be encoded with a multichannel 5.1 mix or in regular stereo and some hybrid discs, containing both a CD and SACD layer, can be played in ordinary CD players. SACD-only discs are only compatible with players that can decode SACD - they will not play in an ordinary CD player. It is often billed as a rival to DVD Audio, though many players will decode both formats.

DVD Audio
DVD-Audio (DVD-A) is a high quality multi channel sound format based around the DVD format. DVD-Audio discs can have high quality multi channel sound with sampling frequencies up to 192kHz compared to 44.1kHz of regular CDs. Most DVD audio discs can be played back in existing DVD players but cannot take advantage of the high quality uncompressed 24-bit, 192kHz sound quality unless they are "DVD-Audio" compliant. Playback on a non-DVD-Audio-compliant DVD player is in compressed Dolby Digital. It is often billed as a rival to Super Audio CD (SACD), though many players will decode both formats.

Multichannel PQLS
When paired with a compatible Pioneer A/V receiver, Pioneer’s Precision Quartz Locking System (PQLS) helps to reduce unwanted jitter on digital audio, including the lossless HD sound formats from Dolby/DTS and DSD from SACD.
Dual HDMI outputs More Info...
Dual HDMI outputs
The BDPLX55 comes with two HDMI outputs allowing you to separate the audio off and feed it to your receiver and send the 3D video signal to your television. This is especially useful if you have an older receiver that can handle HD sound formats but is unable to passthrough or process 3D video.

DLNA is an agreed standard for sharing media from your computer across your home network to devices like this. This can be digital photos, music and videos. Not all devices are capable of playing back all media, some only playback audio.
1080p upscaling for SD content with Marvell Qdeo video processing More Info...
1080p upscaling for SD content with Marvell Qdeo video processing
Video Upscaling
Video content comes in many different shapes and sizes. A DVD, for example, could come in a 4:3 aspect at 480p whilst a Blu-ray or computer game may come in a 16:9 aspect at 1080i. Thse signals must first be processed by either an A/V receiver or by your television in order to display correctly. In the first instance, when upscaling from 480p to 1080p, an algorithm is used to interpolate the original pixels. The end result is a largely new frame; many of the pixels displayed are an average of those around them. In the second instance, from 1080i to 1080p, the image is simply deinterlaced. This process precedes any upscaling, so if you upscale from 480i to 1080p, it will first be deinterlaced before being upscaled.

Marvell Qdeo
Qdeo is a video processor which seeks to remove any errors inherent in the source and to improve the overall picture quality. It removes noise, artefacts and "jaggies" on a pixel-by-pixel basis to get the very best from the source itself. It then applies contrast enhancement, colour remapper and depth expansion technologies with the aim of achieving a more natural image than previously available.

192kHz/32-bit Digital-to-Analogue converter More Info...
192kHz/32-bit Digital-to-Analogue converter

Digital to analogue converter (DAC)
Converts the digital data signal into analogue signal that can be amplified and reproduced using speakers or headphones so that our ears can hear it. In the case of video the data is converted into a video signal that can be reproduced by a display device so that we can see it. Once data is converted to an analogue signal it then can degrade and lose its quality every step of the way. Most modern equipment is designed to keep data in the digital (Lossless) domain as long as possible. In an ideal world data would be kept digital right up until the point that you see or hear it avoiding degradation.
