Sensory Science Corporation today announced it has begun shipping the new DVR4000 from Go-Video, an integrated DVD player and VCR in one product that offers consumers a versatile, high quality, affordable home theater solution. The DVR4000 is capable of playing DVDs, audio and video CDs, and VHS tapes, and users can watch a DVD while recording a TV program.
The DVR4000 is the perfect convenience product for consumers who wish to own a home theater system that is easy to use, convenient, and space-saving. In keeping with Sensory Science's long-standing tradition of creating innovative Dual-Deck products with unique copying abilities, the integrated DVD and VCR allows users to copy certain DVDs to VHS at the touch of one button.
Sensory Science was the first company to offer an integrated DVD + VCR product with last year's introduction of the DVR5000, which was a huge success with retailers and consumers. The DVR4000 incorporates Sensory Science's patented technology for Dual-Deck(TM) products, and additional patents on the product are pending.
Utilizing next generation DVD technology based on the 2001 chassis, the DVR4000 features a 10-bit video digital to analog converter and 27MHz advanced digital filter for a superior picture. The unit has the capability to play DVDs, Video CDs, and Super Video CDs. In addition, the DVR4000 can play 96KHz/24-bit music DVDs as well as audio CDs, and users can also record non-copy protected DVDs to VHS at the touch of one button.
The DVR4000 comes equipped with Dolby® Digital output and DTS output for playback of Dolby® and DTS-enhanced DVDs, and is equipped with component, S-Video, and composite video outputs for high connection flexibility and optimum performance. RF inputs and outputs located on the back of the unit allow for connections to both new and older model televisions, a feature not included on many DVD players.
The Hi-Fi MTS stereo VCR seamlessly integrates with the DVD and contains four heads for superior slow motion and stop action control. The Complete Program Record feature automatically senses the end of the tape and adjusts the tape speed to ensure that the entire program is recorded.
The integrated DVD and VHS menus allow for easy on-screen programming, and the Auto-Clock Set and Channel Search capabilities make set-up simple and convenient. The VCR contains a 181-channel cable ready tuner with a 16-event/one-year timer. The front panel of the DVR4000 contains a child lock that effectively ``toddler-proofs'' the unit, and the glow remote operates both the DVD and the VCR.
The DVR4000 carries an MSRP of $349 and is shipping to retailers throughout the United States.
