Progressive Scan featuring DCDi by Faroudja.
Progressive Scan technology represents a vast improvement over the interlaced scanning method used in TV broadcasts and other conventional applications, as it can process around twice as much video data to produce a sharper, noise-free picture with finer details. High-definition video images are faithfully displayed with optimum naturalness and beauty. Now, this DCDi technology that was available only in the higher-end DVD players has been included in Denon's affordable DVD-1940.
The DVD-1940 has a feature of manual IP detection mode selection. Even if a DVD-Video disc was mastered with wrong progressive flag or without a flag, the user can select a mode (Auto1, Auto2, Video1, 2 or 3) to enjoy higher performance of picture quality.
