VIErA Cast allows users to connect to the Internet and view sites such as YouTube and Picasa using their Blu-ray player.
BD-Live functionality is available on this product
BD-Live* lets users access the Internet to download data such as images and subtitles, and join in quizzes and multi-player interactive games that are linked to bonus movie content contained on Blu-ray DiscsTM. BD-Live also supports BONUSVIEW.
(Pixel Precision Progressive Processing for HD)
To get the best HD images from a BD-Video disc, you need a player that renders high-quality progressive images, expresses motion smoothly, and draws sharp diagonal lines. The DMP-BD60 P4HD processes more than 15 billion pixels per second and applies the optimum processing to every pixel in the video data on the disc. The result is images with exceptional resolution. This is Blu-Ray, this is high definition.
Bonus View Functionality on this product
* lets users enjoy Picture-in-Picture (which displays a second image in a sub-window) and Audio Mixing (which lets you switch the sound between the main and subwindows) while a movie is playing.
Precise Pixel Generation
BD-Video supports a number of formats. For example, highest-quality format 1920 x 1080 pixels, 1080P can be recorded at any of four different frame rates - 59.94i, 50i, 23.976p and 24p - and the compression format can be MPEG2, MPEG4 AVC or VC-1. The BD-Video player must detect these instantly and perform progressive conversion where necessary.
Both for the de-interlacing and scaling, the DMP-BD60'S super-high-speed P4HD generates each pixel correctly according to information obtained from up to 60 surrounding pixels. Applying progressive processing to huge amounts of data, it delivers images of striking beauty.
16-Level Motion Detection with Pixel-Based Motion Adaptive
For optimum progressive conversion, the processing must suit the motion of the image. The super-high-speed P4HD categorizes the image motion of each pixel into one of 16 levels, from stationary to super fast. For areas with stationary images, it applies the progressive processing best suited to still images. In other areas it applies processing that matches the degree of motion. The results are stunningly beautiful progressive images with minimum conversion errors.
The ability to create smooth, sharp diagonal lines is a key in progressive conversion. The P4HD quickly detects diagonals and applies correction to the pixels accordingly. In reproducing the kinds of geometric patterns often seen in architecture, for example, the DMP-BD60 provides exceptionally smooth, sharp diagonal lines whether the image is still or moving.
3:2/2:2 Pull-down Progressive processing
The P4HD instantly determines whether a source is film or video and optimizes the processing accordingly. Applying 3:2 or 2:2* pull-down with movie software, it makes images look natural and true to life.
The P4HD achieves high-speed, highly precise i/p conversion.
This makes it possible to convert 480i and even previously difficult-to-convert 1080i signals to full-HD 1080P images.
Up-Conversion to 1080P* Playback
When playing a BD-Video or DVD disc, the P4HD up-converts content recorded in 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p or 1080i format to 1080P with high precision. You will enjoy superb 1080P-level image quality.
