High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
If you're looking to pump high-definition DVD playback into your HD displays or projectors, this recorder will do the job. It has a high-bandwidth processor capable of upconverting to 1080p through the HDMI output. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable.
Progressive Scan
This is a progressive scan DVD player, capable of scanning an entire video frame at once; scan-lines commonly associated with interlaced video are drastically reduced. The result is a spectacularly clear image with no motion artifacts (stair-stepping), and details so sharp they seem as if they're etched onto the screen.
Multi-Format Capability
It offers a full-range of playback capabilities for enjoying movies, music and images. It can playback DVD-Video, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-RAM, SVCD, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-DA, MP3, and JPEG images.
Dolby Digital and DTS Playback
If you're looking for a DVD player with exquisite audio playback, this unit will do the job. Use the optical or coaxial digital audio outputs to connect the DVD player to your home theater receiver and enjoy full Dolby Digital surround-sound entertainment.

This recorder offers Set-Top Box Pass-Through technology, which allows for viewing of TV programs from your satellite receiver or cable box even when the unit is powered off.
Component Output
With playback specifications that meet the standards of professionals, it features a component video output for high-resolution low-distortion video playback.
DV (iLink) Input
Just connect your digital video camera to the unit's DV front input terminal, and you're ready to record images onto a DVD recordable disc.
Multiple Recording Modes
It offers 8 recording modes: HQ (1h), HSP (1.5h), SP (2h), LSP (2.5h), ESP (3h), LP (4h), EP (6h), SLP (8h). Also, the RDR-VX560 has the ability to record up to an amazing 14 hours with a DVD+R DL disc (SLP Mode).
