WHY DO YOU NEED THE ANY-REGION-DVD PLAYER?
Playing DVDs and HOME-MADE MOVIES from other countries and vice versa is not as simple as many believe. Ordinary DVD players are plagued by serious barriers that will prevent you from the full enjoyment of your content purchases. The AnyRegionDVD was designed to unlock all barriers. You now own the finest product of its type.
The AnyRegionDVD will play DVD, Audio CD and DVD, DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVCD, SVCD, VCD, CD, CD-G, CD±R, CD±RW, MP3, JPEG, PICTURE CD, KODAK Photo CD, Dr. OK, and HDCD Disks. Our players are continuously adding new features
The most COMMON BARRIERS ordinary DVD players can not overcome include the following:
American DVD players operate at 110 Volts/60 Hz whereas most of the world uses 220 Volts/50 Hz. The difference in Voltage will prevent you from using ordinary DVD players in other countries or bringing a European or Asian player to the United States. In the worse of cases your player will burn-up in a flash. Even if you used an expensive external voltage transformer your imported European player (and vice-versa) would still face the restrictions listed below and will not work correctly.

WORLD REGION RESTRICTIONS
The Movies studios and the DVD manufacturers association have agreed to divide the world into 6 regions. America is in region 1 and Europe is in region 2. Other countries fall under one of the other regions. Movies and other content sold in the America market are restricted (physically blocked) to region 1 and will not play in any other of the 5 regions of the world. If you bring a European (region 2) movie or other content to the United States it will not play on ordinary DVD players.
INCOMPATIBLE TV SYSTEMS IN THE WORLD
TV systems are not compatible around the world. European TVs operate under the PAL system and American TVs operate under the NTSC system. You can not view any content made for the PAL TV system on an American NTSC TV and vice-versa (there are other world incompatible TV's systems as well). You can not take your American TV and play it in Europe and vice-versa, it will not work.

COPIED RECORDED MEDIA (BURNED MEDIA) NOT SUPPORTED
Today it is simple to make archival copies of movies, music, photos and home movies on DVD and CD blank recording media. Archival copies and recordings can easily be made with a personal computer based DVD/CD recorder/burner. Ordinary DVD players are designed to play “factory-made” content (not withstanding the limitations listed here) but are unable to play media that you copy or record yourself with a DVD/CD burner. Your AnyRegionDVD player will play all current blank types that you may record/burn yourself.
The AnyRegionDVD will play DVD, Audio CD and DVD, DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVCD, SVCD, VCD, CD, CD-G, CD±R, CD±RW, MP3, JPEG, PICTURE CD, KODAK Photo CD, Dr. OK, and HDCD Disks. Our players are continuously adding new features.
HOME MOVIES WILL NOT PLAY AWAY FROM HOME IN EUROPE OR VICE VERSA
Consumer digital video cameras such as the ones used to make home movies are sold for either the American NTSC TV system or PAL TV system or other world TV system. Home movies made on American Video Cameras will not play when connected to a European TV or vice versa. If you burn your NTSC based home movie to a DVD and send it to friends and family in Europe it will not play.
MARKETING RESTRICTIONS ALSO BLOCK THE PLAYING OF DVD OUTSIDE THEIR INTENDED WORLD MARKETING REGIONS
Besides the six world region restrictions, the movie studios have introduced other barriers to block the viewing of movies and content intended for one region on another region. Two of those marketing world regional restrictions are RCE and REA. If the content of the DVD contains the RCE or REA regional restriction the DVD will not play outside its intended region.

THE ANY-REGION-DVD PLAYER IS THE SOLUTION
Your AnyRegionDVD will not be deterred by any known restrictions. You will be able to play content (DVDs and home movies, for example) from any TV system on any TV system, The player automatically senses the Voltage and will adjust to whatever Voltage in the world. All regional and marketing restrictions are unlocked. You have two players to choose from. Both are identical in features. The only difference is that one is a full width slim-line and the other is a small and light portable. The portable model can be powered from a car or boat cigarette lighter connector when used with a 12 Volt to 110 Volt adapters.
WHY DO WE TEST EVERY ANY-REGION-DVD BEFORE IT SHIPS?
These players use the most advanced technology to make very complex problems and their solutions appear simple. Because of the complexities involved and to ensure that each player performs as intended when you receive them we test and reseal every player before it ships.
