3 HDMI Inputs HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest possible output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources and incorporates digital audio signals. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.

DVD VIDEO DVD-Video is a consumer video format used to store digital video on DVD (DVD-ROM) discs, and is currently the dominant form of consumer video formats in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia.[1] Discs using the DVD-Video specification require a DVD drive and an MPEG-2 decoder (e.g., a DVD player, or a DVD computer drive with a software DVD player). Commercial DVD movies are encoded using a combination of MPEG-2 compressed video and audio of varying formats (often multi-channel formats as described below). Typical data rates for DVD movies range from 310 Mbit/s, and the bit rate is usually adaptive.

Specifically, this term defines formats that deliver a picture that is superior to that of standard-definition television (SDTV), but not as detailed as high-definition television (HDTV). The term refers to devices capable of displaying a 480 -line signal in progressive scan (commonly referred to as "480p") as opposed to interlaced scanning, commonly referred to as "480i". High motion is optional for EDTV.
