There are other aspects that further improve image quality. Samsung’s Blu-ray player and Toshiba’s HD-XA2 have HQ, which can smooth out gradations of colors and help lessen the jaggies of standard definition discs. Background objects and even people can look like blobs on some standard definition players and screens.HQV processing helps transform them into their actual shapes with sharp detail.
Pioneer’s BDP-94HD is a Blu-ray player that is able to output 1080p at 24 frames per second rates, mimicking a movie’s natural film format. It also has a built-in Dolby True HD and DTS HD decoder for uncompressed sound, and a home media gallery that connects to a home network and upconverts movies and photos to 1080p. Another future-proof feature is HDMI CEC. When used in conjunction with compatible TVs and receivers, the technology provides system control and signal adjustments through an HDMI connection.
A hi-def player sale also presents a great opportunity to maximize profitability with accessories. A quality HDMI cable that is speed-rated and Simplay HD-certified to transfer 1080p at 24fps is needed to transfer the entire signal. Adding a power conditioner to the package also helps to improve image quality. To prevent the unit from being returned, mention that discs normally will take awhile to load because they’re packed with so much information. Also point out that many of today’s electronics are software upgradeable, which means they can receive upgrades over the Internet to help solve compatibility or quality issues. The manufacturer can also provide upgrade discs.
