Used PS3 systems

ImageConnect to your display device (usually a television).

The PS3 system supports two modes of video display: HD (High Definition) and SD (Standard Definition). Check the hardware manual supplied with your TV to find out which mode(s) it supports.

  • *1 The video output setting on the PS3 system will display as ‘Standard (PAL)’.
  • *2 This number indicates the number of scan lines. Note that ‘i’ stands for ‘interlaced scan’ (where half the screen refreshes at a time) and ‘p’ stands for ‘progressive scan’ (where the whole screen refreshes at once). Using progressive scan results in higher quality video with minimal flickering.

Examples of the different display resolutions:
