- HDMI Output with 1080p HD Upconversion
The DV-220KV can upscale video signals from 480i/p to a maximum of 1080p HDMI output, allowing you to enjoy standard definition video sources in HD resolution.

- PureCinema 2:3 Progressive Scan
As a progressive scan DVD player, the DV-220KV is capable of scanning an entire video frame at once, drastically reducing scan-lines commonly associated with interlaced video. The result is a spectacularly clear and detailed image with no motion artifacts (stair-stepping).

With the DV-220KV, you can record songs directly from CDs to USB devices. The data is stored in the MP3 format with your choice of bit rate from 128/192/320 kbps. You can copy the whole album or select tracks.
- DivX Home Theater Certified
DivX is video compression software that enables high-quality video to be compressed into very small files, which are then downloaded onto CD-R or CD-RW discs and played back with very little loss of quality.

- Sound Retriever for CD-Quality Sound
The Sound Retriever feature significantly improves compressed audio quality to the level of CD sound in three steps (high/low/off). It does this by creating new signals to restore the minor details left out during the compression process. This feature is effective for both analog and digital output, and upgrades MP3/WMA sound so that it is closer to the quality of the original master.
