The Panasonic DVD-S48 DVD Player is a slimline multi-format disc player that will play your collection of standard DVDs, discs recorded and finalized on your DVD video recorder or camera, and even CDs.

This eliminates the scan lines often seen with interlaced video for a more cinematic experience when you're watching videos.

The DVD-S48 comes with a convenient remote with full system functions, so you can control everything from your couch. You can also make adjustments to the brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and sharpness of your video from afar to fine tune the settings. Offering a slim design that matches any decor, this DVD player is a compact yet full-featured addition to your home theater setup.

Progressive Scan
This is a progressive scan DVD player, so it's capable of scanning an entire video frame at once. This reduces scan lines commonly associated with interlaced video to produce a clear image without motion artifacts or "stair-stepping." It also delivers highly detailed imaging for a smoother, more realistic picture quality.
USB Playback and Recording
The DVD-S48 is capable of recording audio files (CD-DA) from a CD onto a USB device as an MP3 format. With the front panel USB port you can easily plug in a USB device to record from a disc.
Front Panel USB Port
The front panel high-speed USB 2.0 port means you can plug in your USB flash memory device for playback of your personal videos, music and photos. Share them with friends and family without needing to reach to the back of the player. This player supports playback of MP3 and JPEG files from USB memory devices.
Dolby Digital Decoding
This DVD player has built-in decoding for Dolby Digital audio, with a 2-channel analog audio output.
Fully Functional Remote Control
The system comes with a remote with full operations of the system including slow motion playback, subtitle selections, and frame by frame playback. You can also control USB recording with the remote and program a playback order from the comfort of your couch.
Slim Package
The DVD-S48 features a slim design with a sophisticated back finish that will blend seamlessly with your home entertainment space. Measuring just 1.5" high, it should fit just about anywhere.

            Comments about Panasonic DVD-S48 DVD Player:

            I bought this DVD player to use with a projector to display children's curriculum. I wasn't worried about HD compatibility or anything, I just wanted a simple cheap DVD player that was easy to operate for teachers. This was perfect.
            Strangely enough the only complaint I had was that the player was so thin it didn't allow my clamp rack shelf to actually clamp down on top of it to hold it in place. So I just modified the shelf.

              Comments about Panasonic DVD-S48 DVD Player:

              The Panasonic S48 is all you can ask for in a basic DVD player: the picture quality is high, it loads fast, and it is quick and easy to set up. Unlike the Panasonic S68, which costs more and plays European Region 2 DVDs but doesn't play all Region 1 (USA) DVDs, this one will play any Region 1 DVD. It is also lightweight and fairly small and can be easily transported. A perfect basic DVD player at a great price!
