HDMI output with video upscaling to HD resolution 720p/1080i
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a direct digital connection that carries digital high definition resolution video as well as digital multichannel audio. With video upscaling you can increase the resolution of SD (Standard Definition) video signals that DVD uses to High Definition resolutions up to 720p or 1080i, so you will be able to see more details thanks to a sharper, more true-to-life picture. The resulting HD resolution video output signal can be fed to an HD ready display through HDMI. HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI.
