Summary of LG BD550
Enjoy superior home entertainment with Blu-ray discs that have more than twice the resolution of standard DVDs, not to mention superior sound. DivX is a file format that allows movies to be compressed and fit onto a CD, as a DivX movie is about 8 to 12 time smaller than a DVD. DivX playback on LGs video and audio products allow you to download DivX movies from the Internet onto a CD or USB stick, to then enjoy in the comfort of your living room. Sound quality and audio detail with Blu-ray is vastly improved when compared to DVDs because the raw audio isn\'t compressed. That means there\'s no loss in quality and all the details of the sound appear as they would in the cinema. High-definition audio comes in two formats: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Audio. LG\'s Blu-ray player works with both, so you\'ll always experience the finest sound. DVD or Blu-ray players featuring 1080P up scaling can improve the picture quality of a Standard Definition (SD) DVD to that of Full High Definition (FHD) 1080P picture by using the HDMI connection and filling in the missing details. For the ultimate picture, a Blu-ray disc will provide all the detailed picture quality without the need for picture to be up scaled. Home entertainment shouldn\'t be complicated. That\'s why LG makes it easy to connect and control it all, with one remote control for a seamless, streamlined experience. And, when LG Home Entertainment Systems are connected via HDMI, you can manage your flat-panel TV, audio system, and DVD player with the touch of a few buttons, with no complicated connections.
