Among the other features offered on the DMW-SDP1 are a wide variety of playback options including three special transition effects to lend greater creativity to on-screen slideshows. Furthermore, in preview mode, the DMW-SDP1 provides for rapid image search, displaying up to 25 thumbnails on an index screen or calendar time-series screen. Images taken vertically are automatically rotated.
The DMW-SDP1 also supports motion JPEG playback, regardless of TV system. In addition to the normal VGA (640 x 480), wide aspect VGA (848 x 480) motion images, which can be recorded with LUMIX, the SDP1 offers dynamic motion image playback which especially benefits viewing on wide aspect HDTVs. The player also offers high definition motion image (1280 x 720, at 15 fps) with natural detail reproduction that is recordable with the LUMIX new model DMC-LX2.
The included remote control allows the user to enjoy smooth playback of high definition images from the comfort of their chair and simultaneously get quick printouts by connecting the DMW-SDP1 to a Pictbridge-corresponding printer via the included USB cable.
