High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
If you're looking to pump high-definition DVD playback into your HD displays or projectors, the DVD-VR357 will do the job. It has a high-bandwidth processor capable of upconverting to 720p/1080i through the HDMI output. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable.
Progressive Scan
The DVD-VR357 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.
Dolby Digital and DTS Playback
If you're looking for a DVD player with exquisite audio playback, the DVD-VR357 will do the job. Use the optical audio output to connect the DVD player to your home theater receiver and enjoy full Dolby Digital surround-sound entertainment.
DivX Home Theater Certified

Component Output
With playback specifications that meet the standards of professionals, the DVD-VR357 features a component video output for high-resolution low-distortion video playback.
DV (IEEE 1394) Input
