The longest section of a picture or music feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the entire album in audio software.
Track (page 60)
Sections of a music feature on a CD/VIDEO CD (the length of a song).
Interlace format (page 16)
Interlace format shows every other line of an image as a single field and is the standard method for displaying images on television. The even number field shows the even numbered lines of an image, and the odd numbered field shows the odd numbered lines of an image.
MPEG Audio (page 91)
International standard coding system used to compress audio digital signals authorized by ISO/ IEC. MPEG 2, used on DVDs, conforms to up to 7.1-channel surround.
Original (page 65)
Titles actually recorded on a HDD/DVD-RW (VR mode). Erasing original titles frees up disc space.
Playlist (page 65)
Playback information created from the actual recordings on a HDD/DVD-RW (VR mode). A Playlist leaves the original titles as they are, and contains only the information needed to control playback. A Playlist title takes up very little disc space.
Progressive format (page 16)
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately shows every other line of an image (field) to create one frame, the Progressive format shows the entire image at once as a single frame. This means that while the Interlace format can show 25-30 frames/ 50-60 fields in one second, the Progressive format can show 50/60 frames in one second. The overall picture quality increases and still images, text, and horizontal lines appear sharper.
