Pioneer's New DVD Recorders Give New Found Freedom to Television Lovers

Find it, Store it, Create it or Burn it to DVD, All From the Comfort of the Couch!

Advancements in DVD recording from Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. are making it easier than ever for consumers to record their favorite television programming directly to DVD. The new line of Pioneer DVD recorders introduced today at the Consumer Electronics Show combines hard drive technology with software and program guide upgrades to make the process of creating a DVD easy. The Pioneer DVR-533H and DVR-633H allow the viewer to find all of their favorite TV shows through the TV Guide onscreen program guide; store programming on a hard drive; burn to DVD; and create home movies on DVD through the DV camera input on the front panel.

Find It

Pioneer?s DVD recorders with hard drives offer the TV Guide on screen program guide, giving viewers TV listings for as many as eight days. The listings can be sorted by type of programming, title and genre.

Store on Hard Drive or Burn to DVD

Once the viewer knows what he or she wants to record, simple recording is available to the hard drive or straight to a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc. The DVR-533H has a 80GB hard drive and the DVR-633H is super-sized with a 160GB hard drive.

?Hard drive recorders have been extremely popular, but we feel that something?s missing without the addition of a DVD burner for long-term archival,? said Gary Bauhard, director of marketing for home entertainment at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. ?No matter what capacity hard drive you have, there?s going to come a time when you need to erase something. It?s those times that consumers will be really thankful for the DVD recorder that allows them to keep that programming for a longer term on DVD and still be able to clear space out on their hard drive.?

Create Home Movies

A simple DV terminal on the front panel of the DVR-533H and DVR-633H allows anyone to connect a digital camcorder directly to the DVD recorder to create a home movie on DVD. Simple editing features make it possible to cut out portions of the video, saving the best parts for the final DVD.


Much like a computer offers a one-touch Help button to answer basic user questions, Pioneer has created a Help menu on screen for easy set up and use of the DVD recorder. The Help button is directly on the remote control and offers information about what is currently scheduled for recording, how much space is available on the hard drive, and general operational instructions.

Even Simpler Options

For a complete DVD novice, the DVR-233-S also introduced today by Pioneer is an entry-level DVD recorder with basic recording and playback features. The DVR-233-S utilizes VCR Plus + and an advanced disc navigator to simplify the recording process. To ensure high quality recording and playback, the DVR-233-S offers a 10-bit/54MHz video digital to analog converter and Pioneer?s PureCinema progressive scan output.

When it comes time to play back the programming that has been recorded on any of these three DVD recorders, an on-screen menu shows thumbnails of each section of video to help locate the correct scene to play back. The ?skip? feature allows the viewer to jump right past scary scenes in a movie or other content that they don?t want to watch.

The Best of Both Worlds

Pioneer?s DVR-RT501 is a combination DVD recorder with VCR that makes the transfer of VHS tapes to long lasting DVD-R and DVD-RW discs simple. Consumers can record from VHS to DVD and vice versa with the touch of two buttons. It?s a good transition product for someone who owns a lot of VHS tapes, but is beginning their collection of DVDs ? enabling the consumer to play tapes or DVD in a single product.

The Pioneer DVR-233-S, DVR-RT501, DVR-533H and DVR-633H will be available in April with a suggested price of $259, $399, $499 and $599 respectively.

Pioneer?s Home Entertainment Division is the leading manufacturer of plasma televisions and monitors, DVD players and DVD recorders, A/V receivers, CD players and CD recorders, speakers and other audio and video accessories. Its focus is on the development of new digital technologies including Digital Network Entertainment. The company markets its products under the Pioneer and Pioneer Elite brand names. When purchased from an authorized dealer, consumers receive a limited warranty for one year with Pioneer products and two years with Pioneer Elite products.
