A low-profile cabinet design
All three models are only 3 inches in height. This low-profile design highlights their simple beauty without sacrificing performance. Arrange them in line and you will find them highly attractive, designed to compliment each other within the environment or setting that you find most appropriate for product placement.
State-of-art front face architecture and disc tray designs
Exquisitely crafted front panel expresses sensitivity with detail that cannot be found in any mass market production design. The front panel is crafted from a 1.6 inch thick aluminum block, using 1-micrometer-precision 3D processing machines, taking a total of 8 hours to produce one panel. The rounded face is lined by a curved edge aluminum surface, and the design continues on to the top and sides of each individual cabinet. The cut aluminum disc tray (being processed from a similar block of aluminum), takes up to 4 hours to produce and contributes to the artistic excellence of the front panel. Each aluminum disc tray is further enhanced to allow precise and careful handling of any audio or video disc that may be loaded and played.
The interface of this new series is quite unique. The rounded push panel switches placed on the streamlined front panel is operational keys used for commands to play, stop, pause, track select, open disc tray, etc.
Leather finished aluminum remote control with backlit keypad
Leather finish on the rear and sides of the remote controller allow the device to fit comfortably in your hands with little to no “user fatigue.” The remote control also features illuminated push buttons for basic operational control in low or no light situation.
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.
