A new DVD player with a five-disc changer is the headliner in Zenith Electronics Corporation’s new family of DVD players shown for the first time at the 2000 International Consumer Electronics Show. One of five new models on display at the show, the advanced disc-changer player features 4x-16x moveable zoom, Spatializer 3-D virtual surround sound, high-speed (100x) scan and a shuttle universal remote. Jacks include component video output and coax/optical DTS and Dolby Digital support.
Other models, which handle one disc at a time, have similar features, with step-up players offering set-up memory for 30 discs, six-channel Dolby Digital outputs, illuminated shuttle universal remote control and the capability to play DVD, CD, CD-R/W and CD-R discs. Also on display are unique industrial design concepts, including champagne brushed metal and see-through cabinets.
