Philips DVP720SA

2. Unpacking

Philips DVP720SA DVD Player - page 2


The European retail package includes the unit, the remote control, two AA/R6P dry cell batteries, power cable and a Scart cable. We would like to see a coaxial cable included as well. Full multilanguage manual and warranty are also included.

Below we can see inside the DVP720SA, after opening the cover, an action which is not recommended since you void the manufacturer's warranty.

The following chipset, used in the unit, is manufactured by Mediatek in partnership with DivXNetworks and has the DivX certification.

MediaTek?s chipsets, including the MT1389, are used in over 45% of the world?s DVD players. The DivX Certified? designation of the MT1389 means that it has passed DivXNetworks?s rigorous testing process to confirm that it fully supports videos encoded in the DivX video format, and videos protected with the DivX VOD digital rights management system. The popular DivX video technology, which offers DVD-quality at 7-10 times greater compression than MPEG-2, is often called the ?MP3 of video? and has over 100 million worldwide users. MediaTek will offer the DivX Certified? MT1389 chipset to DVD player manufacturers around the world.

On the back of the player are the audio / video connections. We can find coaxial and optical digital audio outputs as well as the Video and S-Video. For excellent sound, we recommend you use the coaxial output for digital sound, with an A/V 5.1CH (or more) amplifier. Philips offers a wide variety of home theater solutions. One strong feature of the player is the built-in 5.1CH decoder.

Below you can see the component video connections of the player.

The Scart provides quick solution for those who prefer convenience.

The remote control is also included in the retail package. The buttons are placed in a logical sequence, and if you notice that there is no eject button, but instead you'll have to keep the stop button pressed for 2 seconds.
