Analog Devices video D / A converter for high resolution picture quality.

The UZ-1 is equipped with Analog Devices 14 bit / 216 MHz video D/A converter (ADV7314), providing excellent quality video signal conversion. This converter, combined with NSV processing (Noise shaping video), moves the playback signalA*fs noise levels to areas of unused bandwidth. This process achieves a very high S/N ratio providing improved playback capability. Newly developed high performance analog circuitry also provides very high-resolution video images, reproducing very fine detail often present in higher quality video signals.

Faroudja IC chip for I/P conversion

The UZ-1 incorporates a Faroudja video chip set for I/P conversion. Using DCDi technology, this chip set enables the UZ-1 to reproduce smooth and finely detailed progressive scan video. This technology also improves resolution by reducing or eliminating the presence of unnatural "jaggies," or uneven edges that often appear in progressive scan playback of a DVD video.

HDMI digital output interface

HDMI interface enables the UZ-1 to transmit both audio and video signals to receiving equipment such as a plasma TV display or LCD display by connecting with just a single cable. The UZ-1 can output 480i, 480P, 720P or 1080i digital video signals, through its user selectable up conversion feature. This provides better clarity and saturation of the video signal.
