1080p DVD Upconversion
With this disc player in your setup, you'll see your DVDs in a whole new light.

HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio through just one cable.
Deep Color Support
An HDMI 1.3 specification means the DVD-S68 is compatible with 30, 36, and 48-bit RGB, or Deep Color. This format expands the colors on the display from millions to billions. While such an expanded color space is beyond what our eyes can see, it eliminates on-screen color banding for tonal transitions that are smooth and subtle color graduations.
