It is also a Region Free DVD Player with integral PAL to NTSC video converter. The Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, providing higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Composite-video and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television. With 3:2 pulldown support, the player corrects for a common distortion in DVDs when 24 frames-per-second movies make the leap to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown removes the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

The CH-DVD 500 is compatible with DVD-R/-RW and DVD+R/+RW media, handling just about any recordable disc. It also has a built in PAL to NTSC video converter which allows playback of any PAL or NTSC-formatted discs, handy when you want to view discs from Europe. A set of multichannel analog-audio outputs routes decoded Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround signals to an audio-video receiver. Dolby Digital and DTS signals can also be channeled through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and optical) for direct connection to an external surround featured AV receiver.

Supplied accessories include a composite video/stereo analog audio interconnect, instruction manual, a power cord, and a multifunction 44-key remote control.
