Why is multi region important for BD and DVD?
DVD and Blu Ray movies are available all over the world but all movies are region coded which means they typically can only be played using equipment from that same region. For example a movie purchased online from another country may be cheap or the latest release, but it may not necessarily work on a Blu Ray or DVD player purchased in Australia. This is unless you have a region free player which is able to play back all movies no matter the region code. Laser BD and DVD players are multi region so you can play movies from all over the world.
Why do I need HDMI?
HDMI is the most widely used format for home audio and visual equipment today. It is the simplest way to connect various home AV equipment using only one cable to deliver top quality digital sound and image. Look for Laser products with HDMI connectivity for the perfect and simple connection.
What is the difference between HDMI, component and composite?
HDMI, Component and Composite are all ways which Audio Visual playback equipment such as DVD and Blu Ray players, connect to Televisions and other peripheral display devices. As technology advances, new connection ports that deliver better performance are added to these devices while older connections are phased out. None are more obvious than analogue connections being replaced by superior digital connections. For example, Composite and Component are analogue connections and will require more than one connection cable to deliver video and audio. HDMI is a digital connection, supporting a higher quality video and audio signal all connecting via just the one cable. For reference, HDMI will deliver the best quality image, while Component will deliver an excellent image, and Composite will deliver a good image.
What is the difference between different version of HDMI? Say 1.4 vs 2.0?
Higher or newer versions of HDMI usually mean that they can transfer higher volumes of data. This means higher audio, pixel and frames rates as well as, compared to earlier HDMI versions, the provision to network the connected devices over the HDMI cable (Versions 1.4 and above.) Latest model TVs demand newer cables in order to deliver its best performance with 3D, Full HD, network, and even 4k. For the best reliability in transmission between your player and your TV, choose a Laser HDMI version 2.0 cable.
How much difference is there between 720p and 1080p?

In the case of 1080p, 1080 lines are displayed on the screen which is probably the most common resolution on TVs today. 1080p is higher in resolution and will display a noticeably better picture.
What are 2k, 2.7k and 4k video files?
The next generation of displays following from 720p and 1080p are the newest of formats called 2k, 2.7k and 4k. While 2k resolution is similar to 1080p, 2.7k typically has a resolution of 2704x1524, 4k typically has a resolution of 3840x2160. Generally the higher the number will give you the better viewing experience.
