Entertainment can be easily enjoyed with the many features in the ID Series. The capacitive touch multimedia keys provide easy control of features such as play, forward, pause and volume control. Customers can feel like part of the entertainment when enjoying video on the Super-DVD player and listening to high-fidelity Dolby Home Theater v3 audio.
