CD Video Player (1989-90)
Compact Disc Video (CDV or CD Video) is the marriage of quality video pictures from disc with digital Compact Disc sound.
It gives the video the sound quality it has always deserved with the programming and access convenience already enjoyed by every CD user.
CD Video is available in three sizes of disc, each offers different facilities and playing time.
Smallest is the 12cm (5inch) disc, the familiar CD size but in unfamiliar gold. This disc has the capacity to store a 6 minute video with digital sound plus 20 minutes of digital audio.
The 20cm (8inch) disc will replay up to 40 minutes of video with digital sound.
A double sided 30cm (12inch) disc has a 120 minute playing capacity.
The Marantz CV 55 will play all these discs and also any existing 75 minute audio - only Compact Disc or 20cm or 30cm analogue LaserVision disc. Full compatibility with existing and planned CDV software is thereby guaranteed.
Marantz has used the knowledge gained with its award winning CD players to design a CD Video player with outstanding sound and picture quality.
