Play DVD, DVD+/-R and DVD+/-RW, (S)VCD, DivX® and MPEG4 movies
With DivX® support, you are able to enjoy DivX® encoded videos in the comfort of your living room. The DivX® media format is an MPEG4-based video compression technology that enables you to save large files like movies, trailers and music videos on media like CD-R/RW, memory cards and DVD-video. DivX® CDs can be played back on selected DVD players, DVD Recorders and Home Theatre Systems.
Play MP3/WMA-CD, CD and CD-RW
Audio compression technology allows large digital music files to be reduced up to 10 times in size without radically degrading their audio quality. MP3 or WMA are two of the compression formats that let you enjoy a world of digital music on your Philips player. Download MP3 or WMA songs from authorised music sites on the Internet or create your own MP3 or WMA music files by ripping your audio CDs and transferring them onto your player.
Share JPEG image files with Picture CD
Multi-format playability allows you to view images on the go and play most disc formats for maximum disc compatibility and viewing pleasure.
SD/MMC card slot for added multimedia support
View and share your video clips, photos and music — easily and instantly. For ultra convenience, the player features a built-in card slot for SD/MMC memory cards. Simply insert the memory card into the slot located on the side of the player to access your multimedia files stored on the card.
21.6 cm (8.5") TFT colour LCD display for high-quality viewing
The high resolution colour LCD display brings images to life, showing off your treasured photos, favourite movies and music with the same 'real life' rich detail and vibrant colours as high quality prints.
Watch movies in 16:9 widescreen format
Display and share your movies and digital photos with your friends and family. The 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio is standard for universal to high-definition digital television. A native 16:9 aspect ratio means video display without bars at the top and bottom of the picture and without the quality loss than comes from scaling, altering an image to fit on a different screen size.
Built-in quality stereo speakers
The stereo speakers provide quality sound and allow you to listen freely. Enjoy music anytime, anywhere, with built-in stereo speakers that allow the convenience and enjoyment of music playback simply by unplugging the headphones.
Up to 4-hour playback with rechargeable battery*
This Philips player comes with a compact built-in rechargeable battery for long-lasting power. Up to 4 hours of continuous movie, photo and music playback enjoyment can be achieved on a single charge. Just plug in the power cable to recharge the player - it's that simple.
Smart Car Mount for ease of use
To enjoy entertainment on the go, why not bring your portable DVD player from home on the road with you? A unique Car Mount system ensures ease-of-use, with a quick-release arm that facilitates easy removal of the player when not in use. You can bring the portable DVD player with you, leaving just the Mount behind in the car.
Protective pouch included
Zero Bright Dot™ screen for optimal screen quality
Enjoy highest-quality images that are free from annoying blank spots on the LCD screen. LCD displays commonly have imperfections, termed 'bright dots' by the LCD industry. A limited number of bright dots was once considered an inevitable side effect of LCD mass production. With Philips' strict quality control procedures used for our Portable DVD Players, our LCD displays are produced with zero tolerance for bright dots. Select Portable DVD Players come with Philips Zero Bright Dot™ Policy to guarantee optimal screen quality.
Component video output for the best analogue video connection
YPbPr Component Video is a top-quality video connection ideal for connecting DVD players or recorders to high-end TV sets. It uses three separate wires for the luminance and colour difference signals to prevent interference. As the video signal on the DVD disc is also stored in YPbPr format, no conversion steps are needed to generate the output signal.
