HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver) with an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). HDMI supports SD, ED, or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi channel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
The SD-780KR has the ability to up convert a standard DVD signal to HD-compatible 720p or 1080i and pass it through the HDMI output; up converted signals are not passed by the component video output.
Video D/A Converter:
This unit uses a 27MHz/10-bit video digital-to-analog converter, which reduces digital artifacts for a better picture and provide unsurpassed color purity, color detail and resolution.
Audio D/A Converter:
The Toshiba SD-780KR has a 192 kHz/24-bit audio digital-to-analog converter for superb audio reproduction.
Progressive Scan Output:
Progressive-scan video has less flicker and fewer motion artifacts than the traditional interlaced-scanning method, resulting in a superior picture. To take advantage of this feature, you must have a television with component video inputs that supports the progressive scanning mode. The Color Stream Pro component outputs on this unit can be set to pass either progressive or interlaced video.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface):
The unit's HDMI simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio all in one cable. This unit features HDCP copyright protection technology, and must be connected to an HDCP-compliant device. If your TV has a DVI input instead of an HDMI input, you can connect this unit to your TV using an HDMI-to-DVI adapter. You will also need to connect audio cables to the player because DVI is a video only cable.
