Philips DVP 3980/37 DVD player is a model with just the basics covered. With high definition video upscaling of 720p, 1080i and 1080p, a clear and crisp picture can be expected. Other image enhancements are supported by progressive scan and what Philips calls Smart Picture. The audio produced by this model uses Dolby Digital surround sound with a 24bit/192kHz D/A converter.  For photo viewing, HD JPEG allows for resolutions up to two megapixels. Added convenience is found in DVP 3890/37s video playback of PAL as well as NTSC and the EasyLink via HDMI CEC. What separates this model from the DVP 3982/37 is not having the DivX playback package.
