"..NUON technology turns a DVD player into a complete video entertainment system. Samsung's DVD-N2000 will be the first of their DVDs to be produced using NUON and will be available in the first quarter of 2000 with a MSRP of $499. The DVD-N2000 offers exceptionally smooth Shuttle, as well as a new pan-zoom function that allows the user to select and magnify any portion of the picture up to twenty times. The NUON processing allows this dramatic magnification with little distortion thanks to advanced filtering algorithms. And this astounding flexibility is available anytime, even while the movie is playing.
NUON further allows the DVD-N2000 to play CD discs at half-normal speed or twice normal speed with minimal distortion. It can even play a CD backwards. CD Playback is even more interesting with the elaborate graphics options, including a colorful spectrum analyzer display and other dynamic images that respond to the musical content.
Most exciting, however, is that the DVD-N2000 will also function as the family gaming console. Games are in development and soon consumers will be able to switch from watching, to listening, to playing, at the change of a disc.."
