Car DVD Player Mysteries - What is ISDB-T?

Today's modern car DVD players are versatile. Not only do many (reception of GPS navigation, the possibility of analog TV signals, various types of audio decoding skills, etc.) with a wide range of functions, but are also used in many parts of the world come each with its own methodology to transmit and receive digital signals.

Answering the question "Car DVD Player mysteries: What is ISDB-T?" might be something worthwhen trying to understand how a car DVD player.

For starters, DVD Player information machine works all the ways to handle incoming signals to transmit radio, television or other specific ones. One of the things that the player has to do is make sense of the digital signal standard used in the country in which the player is used. There are several classes of signal around the world and ISDB (Integrated ServicesDigital Broadcasting ") is one of them.

This particular way of sending and receiving digital signals (analog signals for transmission of TV and radio are fast growing in popularity and use) is a Japanese standard developed, such as sending digital television and digital radio reception these signals.

There is also a replacement for what the "muse" or "High-Vision" TV analog high-definition (HDTV). With digital signals can be much more information will be providedmuch more efficient than the old analog standard way.

Basically, ISDB-T is an effective way to compress digital audio and video signals, so that a variety of formats (MPEG-2, JPEG and MPEG-4, for example) are treated with a device. ISDB is versatile and available in a variety of signal modulation (which is the signal frequency to do with radiation).

In any case, many other countries except Japan are now using standard ISDB, includingthe Philippines and several countries in Central and South America (Brazil, El Salvador, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Venezuela are just a few).

The types of devices, the signals can use ISDB-T digital tuner to take, this is varied, and could be viewed on devices such as car DVD players, mobile phones, television and digital signals can be in portable computers, this may be the same.

Standards vary across the world for digital broadcasting andwith certain countries, in what is called ATSC (new for North America, replaces the old NTSC standard for mid-2009 and is expected to take over from Mexico to Canada in 2021 and 2011) and others who call in DVB -T, only a few examples.

Today, modern appliances are versatile enough to be sold everywhere, of course, and may have two or more tuner that can be sold well.

It 'also easy enough to find out exactly what standardYour country is the use of, or by going online to search for devices in your country sells, for example, all, what are the standard transmission, you can handle. Against those who buy a car DVD player should know how to comfort her signals that most devices today use a different number from both efficiently and with ease.

Buy new DVD releases, DVD Cheap & Discount DVD

Lowering prices.

The movie industry is trying to combat the rising prices of cheap DVDs and DVD sales at discounted prices at the bottom.

Entertainment companies see it differently. With the increasing demand for cheap and discount DVD DVD of the major Hollywood studios and has prevented companies to exploit the growth potential of this market attractive. Now, some media companies looking for a wave of price cuts on new DVD and CD low enough to reverseChallenge the discount DVD Schneider again at their own game.

The Game Plan:

The idea is that prices for consumers in these markets, new DVD releases too cheap. Warner Bros. is hoping for a fourth entry into the Chinese market prices for its new release DVD movies from there to between $ 2 and $. NBC Universal wants to tap into the distribution system in China, and Warner is planning a similar program in Russia. Meanwhile, the four global musicCompanies have just started a similar strategy in Mexico in connection with the distributors, with the aim of replacing the DVD CD with new lines of discount rate cut of DVD and New Arrivals.

The companies are betting that, like Apple Computer has helped the music industry in the United States to reclaim turf lost iPod Internet piracy of songs for the determination of the price of 99 cents per unit, film studios and record labels for consumers abroad suddenly wooed back the price of DVDs and CDs. The discs arehigh quality, they say, increasing the risk of purchasing low quality goods and to justify the premium consumers are willing to pay.

The summary:

New Releases DVD in stores like Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target will cost around 19.99, HD DVD and Blu Ray are 24.99 and around 29.99. With this said, the savings and the choice is clear, DVD hotels are popular because of its price.

VHS to DVD without a computer

In today's digital world, old VHS recordings take a lot of space. Moreover, they are subject to the ravages of time and do something as simple as a box set of stereo speakers near the ceiling in a box full of tapes erased. More and more people make the decision to take their old movies, and in many cases has purchased the film and converting VHS to DVD. This is possible using a DVD or VHS at home to do service with the bottom. During the conversion is usually easier with a computer you can save video and converts them into old VHS to DVD without a computer.

The hardware needed to convert from VHS to DVD without a computer network can be expensive. What must have a VCR or VCP in perfect condition and a DVD recorder. The most recent estimates, DVD recorder, on average, about $ 200. Everything that has a VCR or DVD player to connect> DVD, start at the beginning and hit the VHS tape to DVD.

To ensure device compatibility with most probably would be better, DVDs, use DVD-R or DVD-RW. Plus DVD plus R and RW DVD will work, but may not be compatible with DVD players.

There are some disadvantages of this system for the conversion from VHS to DVD. First of all, you do not have editing capabilities. This means that the quality ofVideo bandwidth is available from the quality of the video that the DVD can be saved. In addition, many films are bought copy protected, which means that any attempt, a copy on another tape or DVD effort will lead to a loss of time and how the issue is encrypted.

When one year has an extensive collection of VHS tapes of films that have been purchased, it would probably be easier and cheaper to buy back a DVD movieFormat or on the Internet, download and burn to DVD. But with home video equipment and created a VHS camcorder tapes to record, is that television, the transformation into a modern DVD generates more lasting, more durable, less space that a digital copy and are easier to work with.

If one is not overly concerned about the quality of video and audio feed produced from a VHS tape when converting to DVD format, thenVHS to DVD without a computer service, computer less than a simple method that takes time to try for an exit. On the other hand, if the video quality is important, you should use a computer, so the video can be edited and brought up to date.

Toshiba 15LV505 15.6-inch widescreen LCD TV (with integrated DVD player)

To date, they are still very surprised that there are so all-in-One TVs on the market. In recent years, the majority of American households own a television and DVD player. Despite this fact, there are only a handful of TV with a built-in DVD player on the market. Here's a quick overview of one of the best models, the 15.6-inch widescreen LCD TV Toshiba 15LV505.

Technical Data: The Toshiba 15LV505 15.6-inchWide-screen LCD TV can play video at 1366 x 768 resolution (720p). It also has a contrast ratio of 800:1. In addition to playing DVD movies, this model also supports WMA, MP3, JPEG and DivX playback. It has a response time of 5 ms and integrated stereo speakers. It will be available with an attachment, a remote and a power cord.

Design: The model has a high gloss front panel and displayed. The speakers below the screen and DVD playeron the back of the LCD screen. To insert a DVD, you can just slide the disc of the page. One of the biggest failures of the model is that it can not be wall mounted. Neither has any connection to the front. All connections are located on the back of the TV des Measure thickness of 5.5 cm.

Summary: Toshiba 15LV505 15.6-inch widescreen LCD TV to produce very clear images, especially for a 15-inch display lights. The back-audio format and are very adaptable. The screen surface is matte, which reduced the glare in a brightly lit room. On the other hand, support is not adjustable and can not be turned from side to side. I also wish it came with screens larger exhibition halls, as the 15 "really limits their use. Closely However, this is a great little LCD TV and are small (like your child room, kitchen, office, or ship).

Blu-Ray, DVD And Multi-Region, Codefree, Region Free Variations And Super-Human Vision

It gets rather complicated when trying to describe the differences between Broadcast systems and Video systems so let stick to those video systems found in VCRs, camcorders, DVD and Blu-Ray Disc players etc.

Those are the basic standards and none are compatible with each other. Sometimes the A/C Hertz are 50 MHz (220 volt countries) and sometimes 60Mhz (110 volt countries) and this changes the scanning results of an electron tube, LVD or Plasma etc. 60Mhz, used in the USA for example, renders the image smoother, virtually no discernible flicker. With line doubling and quad-doubling (100 and 220 MHz and then 200 and 440 MHz).

Line doubling actually interlaces the picture into a single scan that reveals the entire frame and doubling again increased the scan lines providing for an even finer resolution and there a better sense of reality to the human eye. Technically it takes the original two-field frame and creates a progressive scan (single non-interlaced frame) output. This produces a higher resolution picture both brighter and smoother.

Some 3rd party Line-quadruplers can upscale to resolutions: 1365x1024, 720P, 1080i 852x480, 1024x1024, 1024x768 and 1365x768 and even higher. When the newest technology in video images hits the world we will be seeing NHK images of more than 6000 lines, up from the maximum of 1080P today.

If they then begin to Line-quadruple an image like that who knows what the mind might achieve if plugged directly into the motherboard of the future. Perhaps an enlarging and enhancing of human vision will be needed in the order of 1,000 eyes, 360 degree views both laterally and longitudinally, 100,000,000 lines of resolution all far outpacing current human ability.

Back to PAL-NTSC for a moment.

These many video systems were created due to incompatible electrical standards such as the Hertz, due to economic exigencies and even political motivations (for example, a country didn't want its TV to be seen by another countries citizens nearby lest they get "ideas"!

With the advent of DVD disc players Hollywood producers decided to take advantage of the new electronic potential inherent in this new groundbreaking technology to better market their movies.

With movies released in VHS VCR tape versions but in 5-6 different and non-competing systems the release of movies worldwide could be staggered according to best marketing practices so rake in as much profit as possible from every country. A movie released in April in the USA didn't have to be released until the right time in South America and the idea of people in Argentina (PAL-N) wishing to buy the film from a US retailer was virtually a useless plan as the Argentine would have no VCR and no TV of the correct system to play and display the images with. PAL-N and NTSC simply do not display correctly on the wrong systems, even the speeds of recording and playback are different. This means an NTSC movie seen on a PAL or other standard would usually be in black and white, have terribly vertical scrolling problems, have a horizontal skew at the top of the picture and be in the wrong speed so even the voices were too fast or too slow. It's a mess!

Until the Japanese VCR (and at one time even Sony's BETA) makers came out with Multisystem VCRs!

Most could only play the tapes from various standards but to display them you'd also need a TV that was multisystem as well, or 2 TVs, or even 3 each being of the appropriate system you were outputting from the VCR.

To get around the need of buying a multisystem TV Panasonic came out with the incredible AG-W1 model which had a built-in digital converter which could play, record and convert to/from all of the world five current systems. It was $4,000 but was a great device producing excellent results, albeit not for broadcasting purposes.

Many people got around having buy the AGW-1 (and its subsequent progeny AGW-2 and AGW-3) by buying a Planet Omni Tenlab Digital systems converter at a fraction of the cost of the AGW-1 and using it with a multisystem VCR. In this way the image quality was the same or better and the price when way down to the consumer.

Soon AIWA came out with the much cheaper MX-1 converting multisystem VCR which wasn't a digital type but used analog converting methods which are much inferior, then Samsung, GoVideo and a few others. Samsung was the actual manufacturer for the Panasonic AGW-1 and 2 and under their own brand they came out with a wide variety of models such as the SV-3000W, SV-5000S, SV-7000W (with the unique French Secam-L tuner built-in).

Planet Omni still has some of the Panasonic, Aiwa and Samsungs left for sale. None have been made for 2-3 years and with the death of the VCR they never will be made again. People worldwide with old home movies should consider having them transferred to DVD discs which can also be converter from PAL to NTSC or NTSC to PAL. All countries using any system but those two will find that their tapes can be converted to PAL and will display perfectly on their TV even if the TV isn't strictly PAL.

People in an NTSC country can utilize converting services such as Planet Omni's and convert tapes or DVDs to PAL or visa-versa to NTSC rather than buying PAL-NTSC DVD recorders (which exist) and a TENLAB converter.

Since the Hollywood producers were rather OK with the incompatible VHS video standards worldwide it was a new problem with DVD disc movies.

As all SECAM countries are also PAL countries as far as their TVs being multisystem go and the same for PAL-M (Brazil) and PAL-N (Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay) countries, this meant that DVD movies only had to be either NTSC or PAL and they could be seen worldwide.

This wasn't very good for Hollywood filmmakers however as too many countries could then buy discs from another country and see movies straight from their first release on disc which sometimes predated even the movies official theatrical release in theaters. This meant that a citizen of a PAL country such as Italy could buy a new movie from a New Zealand (PAL) source and see the movie (with subtitles if needed) perhaps months before the film was actually released theatrically or on DVD in Italy. This infringed on the natural markets of established theater owners and retailers in Italy.

Generally when a European country gets a movie on DVD it is also available at the same time in other Euro countries, but not always. But then an English speaking person in Australia could buy the movie from a UK source and see it in English on his PAL TV.

Again, not very good for business men and bean counters.

So a new technology was embedded into each Hollywood movie shipped out to the various countries around the world. This is called REGIONAL CODES.

They divided the world, as best as they could, into 6 regions based on film release protocols.

These regional codes are built-in to both the DVD players and the DVD movie discs as well.
6 regions, 2 video standards (PAL-NTSC) making things fairly complex.

For example, Europe is PAL and REGION 2 but Japan is NTSC and yet is REGION 2!
This means that a Japanese DVD disc would play on a Japanese DVD player fine but even though it is REGION 2 it would not play on a European PAL TV even if you took the Japanese DVD player to Europe, raised the voltage from 100V to 240V and then tried to play it. The disc would spin, the player would play it but the TV could not display it...UNLESS the TV was also an NTSC multisystem TV.

So how to get around these video standards and regional codes?

The invention of a REGION FREE DVD player (aka Codefree, code free, regionfree, all zone, universal, all region etc). But is that against the law and how can it be done? What does it mean?

By licensing agreement no manufacturer of DVD players are permitted to make a region free player. Each must be set to a specific region. They can be PAL-NTSC both but the REGIONAL CODE must be specific to a certain region. The USA is Region 1... and here are all of them:

Region codes and countries

Region code Area

0 Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have region 1-6 flags set.

1 Bermuda, Canada, Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories

2 European Union, Albania, Andorra, Bahrain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Egypt, Faroe Islands, French Guiana, Georgia, Greenland, Guernsey, Iceland, Iran, Iraq, Isle of Man, Israel, Japan, Jersey, Jordan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Norway, Oman, Qatar, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Africa, Swaziland, Switzerland, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Vatican City State, Yemen

3 Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Taiwan

4 Caribbean, Central America, Oceania, South America (except French Guiana), Mexico

5 African countries not explicitly included in other regions, Indian subcontinent, countries included in the former Soviet Union, Belarus, Mongolia, North Korea

6 People's Republic of China (except Macau and Hong Kong)

7 Reserved for future use (found in use on protected screener copies of MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia)

8 International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, etc.[1]
ALL Region ALL discs have all 8 flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any locale on any player.

ALL Region ALL discs have all 8 flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any locale on any player.

So is it against the law to modify a DVD player and make it CODE FREE?

No, it isn't at all. Many places such as PLANET OMNI have been selling them for years. The quality of the modification rarely varies, it is generally a perfect mod so that any and all DVD movies will play but you'll need a PAL-NTSC TV or a video standards converter to see both PAL and NTSC DVD movies.

Remember that a DVD movie is NOT a DVD-R or DVD+R disc even though it may be a movie that has been recorded.

Most DVD Codefree players will play most DVD-R & DVD-RW, DVD+R & DVD+RW homemade discs.

99% also play CD discs for regular music playback and many play a wide variety of other formats such as MP3, WMA, DVD-Video, Video CD, DVD-Audio, SACD, CD, audio CD-R & CD-RW, WMA, & JPEG and JPEG and Kodak JPEG.

So, a REGION FREE DVD player can play all regions and both PAL and NTSC discs, IE every known type of DVD movie on earth, but what if you don't have a PAL-NTSC TV or a video standards converter?

Besides the fact that you can buy those items there are also CONVERTING Region free DVD players.

Some can convert a PAL DVD movie to NTSC and some can do both that and converter a USA NTSC disc to PAL.

And some can do both but if you ever get a PAL-NTSC TV you can turn OFF the conversion and then see everything, all DVD movies from all countries in all standards on any the TV in the ORIGINAL PICTURE quality. Again, on-line shops such as Planet Omni carry this type as well.

These Codefree, Converting players can be even the most advanced units with all the latest bells and whistles certainly including things like DTS STEREO, Dolby Digital, HDMI and DVI output, 5.1 and higher stereo channel output, Progressive scan and so forth.

But now let's consider what this means as regards the Blu-Ray Disc players that are Multi-region.

As HD DVD is dead as a Hi-Def format we consider that Blu-Ray Disc players and movies on Blu-Ray discs are here to stay until the next leap into the future hits us which may happen around 2012 with the entry of the latest 6,000 Line Super-Hi Definition TVs, some 6 x more realistic and 3D appearing than Blu-Ray and 1080P technology.

As with DVD region Blu-Ray discs and players also have regions, called Region A, B and C.
These are non-compatible regions which include PAL-SECAM-NTSC and all other systems.
The beauty of a Region A or B Blu-Ray disc when played in a Multi-region Blu-Ray disc player via the HDMI output (that is a single cable combining all audio and video signals) is that the TV doesn't have to be Pal-NTSC-Secam or anything specific at all. As long as the TV has an HDMI input all Blu-Ray Disc movies from Regions A and B will play in their full glory and, depending on the maximum resolution possible of each TV, in the highest quality possible. Pal and NTSC no longer exist in the HDMI world, the problems of Hertz, government controls and so forth, Gone with the Wind!

However, there are still Regions A, B and C.

For the Hollywood production companies these 3 Regions are still important, but not as once they were.

Do know that a Blu-Ray Disc movie output thru the regular component, S-Video or composite (A/V RCA cables) still requite the proper standard to view movies with, PAL for a PAL disc and NTSC for an NTSC disc. But in TVs there are no regions so any PAL-NTSC TV can display any PAL or NTSC DVD.

In the case of the Sony BDP-S300 multi-region version available now (110 volt version) you can pop in any Blu-Ray Disc movie from the A and B countries seen below and on any TV with an HDMI input you can see the entirety of any library.

The Sony BDP-S300 multi-region player has been highlyrated by many including reviews such as: "I am delighted with my Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray Disc Player. It has excellent audio and visual definition. The crystalline clarity of 1080p Blu-ray Disc movies and DVD upscaling brings your DVDs to the highest resolution possible. Purchase this product and you will not be disappointed."

The Blu-Ray Disc Regions are as seen here:

A/North America, Central America, South America, Japan, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia.

B/Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, plus all of Oceania.

C/India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Mainland China, Pakistan, Russia, Central, and South Asia.
The future of Blu-Ray Disc type technology?

In January 2007, Hitachi previewed a 100 GB Blu-ray Disc, which has four layers containing 25 GB each. Unlike TDK and Panasonic's 100 GB discs, they Hitachi claims this disc is readable on a standard Blu-ray Disc drive a firmware update is the only requirement to make it readable to current players and drives.

Many other iterations and variations of the Blu-Ray milieu are popping up including such novel notions as BD9 / BD5 Blu-ray Disc, AVCREC, Blu-ray Disc recordable, HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc hybrid discs, HD VMD/Versatile Multilayer Disc (new low-profile competitor) AVCHD, Digital Multilayer Disk - the successor technology to Fluorescent Multilayer Disc, Enhanced Versatile Disc (EVD), Forward Versatile Disc (FVD) - Taiwanese backed red laser format, Fluorescent Multilayer Disc, Holographic Versatile Disc - standards with 200 and 300 GB storage are under development 3D optical data storage - a next-generation technology expected to provide TB-capacity discs, Protein-coated disc, Tapestry Media, Ultra Density Optical LS-R - a "layer selection" technology allowing the stacking of very large numbers of DVD-like data layers in a single disc, Professional Disc for DATA (PDD or ProDATA) and much more.

Will there still be Regions? Who knows but there will always be a better genius to overcome them.

Twilight Saga - Eclipse DVD Release - Another Blockbuster DVD?

When Twilight was released on DVD, it sold 3.8 million units in the first two days, generating more than 180 million dollars in DVD sales. New Moon was even better, selling 4 million copies in the first weekend. Producers are hoping it will earn at least the same as Twilight, if not more. Now that the time is drawing near for the Eclipse DVD release, will it manage to set a new record for the franchise?

The hype surrounding the Twilight series is based on the huge success Stephenie Meyer achieved with her first novel. Additional sequels followed the pattern as the audience was hungry for new adventures of their heroes, Bella, Edward and Jacob. As the movies were released, fans were thrilled by an opportunity to see the story in film. With Breaking Dawn announced for 2010, it will be four movies in four years, maximizing the marketing effect.

The producers wanted to take Eclipse in a slightly different direction than the first two movies, so they hired David Slade to direct it, since Chris Weitz turned them down, stating that he was too busy with completing New Moon. Apart from adding more action than in previous movies, Slade was more concerned with telling a good story, than simple being different.

New action scenes have pushed Eclipse into action/ horror-thriller, which will certainly appeal to a much broader audience than Twilight and New Moon. As the terror spreads throughout Seattle, Belle is caught between her lover vampire Edward and her friend werewolf Jacob, who also has feelings for her.

The ancient rivalry between vampires and werewolves is held at bay by a fragile truce, to which both parties agreed only because of Bella. The situation is complicated by Victoria, who is looking to enact her revenge upon Bella for the death of her boyfriend in a previous chapter of the saga. Edward and Jacob will have to work together if they are to stop Victoria's army of newborn vampires and save Bella.

"Bring back Rachel" was the most seen message on Twitter on July 29th 2009. This was the day when Summit Entertainment announced that they are replacing her with Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria in Eclipse. They even made her a tribute video on You tube. Rachel stated that she was overwhelmed by the fans' support. However, even though she did a good job interpreting Victoria in the first two movies, we have to be fair and say that Bryce Dallas Howard managed the role quite well in Eclipse, playing a villain.

The final sequel of the saga, Breaking Dawn, will enter pre-production in 2010, although Summit Entertainment still hasn't approved the final adaptation. Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the screenplays for the first three movies, is also in charge of the fourth.

One other thing they are missing is a director. The success of Twilight Saga: Eclipse will surely influence David Slade's chances of being selected for the job, but the rumors have it that Academy Award winner Bill Condon is also being considered. One thing is for sure, who ever is chosen will have huge shoes to fill.
