Super Picture Up-Scaling
Even your existing standard definition DVD library can look better than ever because the BD-HP25U is backwards compatible with your DVDs. By optimizing standard DVD and streaming video playback signals to 1080p (when displaying on a 1080p capable HDTV through the HDMI® connection), the BD-HP25U can deliver more DVD picture quality as each single frame is upconverted.
