Here's what the press release says, but I can't find anything about A1 control. I don't know if a spec sheet is available yet.


Cut out of press release:

The DVP-CX870D and DVP-CX860 feature the proprietary Disc Explorerä Disc Management System that provides enhancements and ease of use when managing discs. Whether it’s sorting, filing or categorizing, Sony’s new changers provide an efficient solution.

Originally introduced on Sony’s critically acclaimed DVP-CX850D, the DVD format’s Jacket Picture feature has become more accessible, thanks to the inclusion of the feature by many of the motion picture studios and Sony’s own innovations.

Jacket Picture titles include an image of their cover art embedded in the disc. These can be displayed as a series of thumbnail images for use in organizing and playing DVD collections, or they can be displayed full screen individually whenever disc playback is stopped.

With the 301-disc changers, 16 improved genre images (comedy, drama, horror, etc.) are now available, along with a Jacket Picture Collection Disc from Sony, which has about 350 images for titles that didn’t have the feature when released. The images on the disc are accessed via simple drop-in loading and simplify cataloging.

In addition, the Disc Explorer system allows users to easily access any disc stored either alphabetically by title or numerically by tray slot number.

There’s also an Edit Mode that enables users to categorize any movie or music by genre, using graphic icons.

Both the DVP-CX870D and DVP-CX860 incorporate DVD text capability, simplifying the storage and accessing of encoded discs. When inserted into a player, the encoded disc’s name automatically appears on the DVD player display and TV screen. Text information—such as disc title, artist or actors, chapter/track and genre—can also be included.

Users can also personalize the information by using the changers’ Disc Memo feature in conjunction with an enhanced, illuminated DVD Navigator Remote or with any IBM compatible P/S2 keyboard (not supplied).
