This sleek compact Toshiba 8.9" Portable DVD Player is your all-in-one, on-the-go portable entertainment center. The 8.9" polysilicon TFT screen has a 1024x768 pixel resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio for viewing standard, letterbox, and anamorphic DVD movies. And you can also enjoy hearing your MP3 and WMA audio files viewing JPEGs. Features: integrated memory card slot for Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards; compatible with DVD movie, CD audio, DVD audio, DVD-R, and CD-R/W discs; built-in bass reflex speakers; DTS digital output; and credit card-size remote control.
Note: Toshiba SD-P2600 8.9" Portable DVD Player (Silver) is no longer being manufactured. You may want to consider purchasing the newer Toshiba SD-P2700 8.9" Portable DVD Player instead.
Rely on it when you're on the road and savor its performance at home: Toshiba's SD-P2600 DVD-Video/DVD-Audio portable DVD player is distinguished by its sleek appearance, 8.9-inch polysilicon widescreen display, and high-resolution 1,024 x 600-pixel image. The TFT (thin-film-transistor) active-matrix display delivers film-like images rich in detail, color resolution, and contrast.
Besides media playback versatility--it handles everything from DVD-Video to DVD-R, VCD, MP3/WMA CD, and a host of image formats--the SD-P2600 offers Toshiba's ColorStream PRO progressive-scan component-video outputs (for use with high-definition and HD-ready TVs) and employs an 10-bit, 54 MHz video digital-to-analog converter to cement its guarantee of stellar image quality. A sleek, credit-card-sized remote control simplifies operation.
Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. The SD-P2600 also performs 3:2 pulldown detection (Digital Cinema Progressive). DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown reversal digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.
Further, a Toshiba feature called Direct Digital Solution sends a DVD's video information to the LCD driver directly from the unit's MPEG decoder in its original digital form, bypassing unnecessary digital-to-analog conversion steps to deliver the best picture quality possible.
Toshiba's digital photo viewer displays images right on your television in a variety of popular formats, including Konica, Fuji Photo, Kodak Photo CD, as well as standard JPEG files--there's even a Secure Digital/MultiMedia Card slot to further simplify viewing. An onscreen display walks you through the process of making your own slideshows, in which you can preset the viewing time of each slide as well as zoom, rotate, and pan each photo.
Leading-edge 24-bit/192 kHz digital-analog converters from Analog Devices delivers exceptional 2-channel DVD-Audio frequency response and dynamic range. DVD-Audio discs deliver high-resolution audio, capturing and reproducing all of the nuances of the original performance and offering high-resolution surround sound as well as stereo. (DVD-Audio resolution is available through the analog audio outputs only.)
A pair of built-in headphone jacks let you watch or listen with a partner, while Spatializer N-2-2 ULTRA and Natural Headphone virtual surround sound algorithms simulate surround through 2 speakers or 1 set of headphones. Built-in stereo speakers grant headphone-free listening through high-efficiency titanium drivers in bass-reflex enclosures for more full-bodied sound than typical portables produce.
The SD-P2600 passes both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals through its coaxial-type digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. The supplied lithium-ion battery blends seamlessly with the player's cosmetic profile and offers around 3.5 hours of uninterrupted movie or music entertainment. The battery also charges quickly, in around 3 hours.
