Recommended license: Single HD (Standard/SW-PST-HD01)

The Player-L pairs best with a single-channel Standard HD license, which allows standard HD/1080p resolution while providing several more features than a Lite license. 

While you can use a Lite license with this player, the Lite license imposes some feature limitations. 

As the Player-L does not support 4K playback, an Advanced UHD license will provide you with additional features but it generally will not improve picture quality above that provided by a Lite or Standard HD license.

With only one HDMI video output, the Player-L should be paired only with single-channel licenses. 

For details about the different licenses, refer to the License Functionality Matrix.
