Philips’ new DVD Recorder awarded ‘European Digital Video Recorder of the year 2001-2002’


Philips introduces the new DVDR1000 DVD Recorder at the IFA 2001 Consumer Electronics show in Berlin. This recorder makes it easy for consumers to create their own digital-quality video recordings which can then be played back on the vast majority of existing DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives in PCs.

The DVDR1000 has been recognized for its performance and has been awarded ‘European Digital Video Recorder of the year 2001 - 2002’ by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). The jury noted the DVD recorder’s excellent performance as a time-shift recorder, and the ideal solution for those who want to preserve home made DV-movies on a more reliable and more user friendly disc platform. ‘The Philips DVDR1000 takes off where the conventional video recorder stops, because of the limitations of tape. For the first time in Europe, it’s now possible to record DVDs on a stand-alone device that can be played back on the majority of DVD-players on sale’.

Easy video recordings. A small change…A big difference…. Philips’ basic concept in developing this breakthrough product has been simply to add a ‘record’ button to the successful DVD-Video format. From the start he product has been developed to be compatible with existing and future DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives. As a result, the DVDR1000 offers the consumer important consumer benefits. It is the only DVD Recorder that offers compatibility without compromising performance or ease-of-use. No complicated preparations or set-up procedures are needed to make a recording; all that is necessary is to load a rewritable DVD disc, select the source and - indeed - press ‘record’.

“We are very pleased that we have taken the route to develop a DVD Recorder that is build on the successful DVD format”, says Didier Juin, Vice President and General Manager for Philips’ DVD Recorder business: "Our product combines best picture and sound recording quality with the appreciated benefits of the DVD-Video format.”

Next to easy recording, the DVDR1000 also makes playback a much richer and more convenient experience than with conventional video recorders. Best of all, the easy-to-use disc navigation features with Index Pictures make it very quick and simple to find any desired recording or available free space on a disc. For quick review of disc contents, a DVD title menu is automatically created when a disc is first recorded, and is updated every time a new recording is added or the disc contents are modified in any way. The menu and key frames are part of the disc, which means that the menu and key frames will also be displayed when using the disc on a DVD-Video player.

Choice of recording levels – one disc for all recordings Matching the quality levels of different video sources, the DVDR1000 has a choice of four recording levels: High Quality, equivalent to studio-quality digital video masters; Standard Play, equivalent to normal DVD-Video digital quality; Long Play, for better than S-VHS video quality; and Extended Play for extra-long recording times at a quality level still superior to that of standard VHS recordings. These four recording levels give recording times of 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours, respectively, on a single rewritable DVD disc. All levels can be mixed freely on a disc, so users can choose the optimum recording level every time they make a recording. The right level is automatically selected on playback in a DVD-Video player.

Outstanding digital quality is another big advantage of recordings made with the DVDR1000. Variable bit-rate (VBR) technology is applied in order to provide the optimum recording quality possible at the given recording length. A high bit-rate - in other words more digital data – is used for maximum representation of detail in complex and dynamic scenes, and a lower bit-rate is used to save disc space when recording simpler, more static scenes. When recording from analog sources the DVDR1000 gives superior, even better-than-original picture quality. This is achieved by a unique combination of advanced features in the DVD which eliminates video jitter, and which also enhances picture quality by pre-filtering the incoming analog video signals before they are encoded for digital recording.

Providing an ideal way to personalize video recordings, the DVDR1000 offers easy editing facilities, allowing to select the highlights of any recordings. The result of this editing is stored on disc. When playing a disc on a regular DVD player the customer has the choice of watching just the selected highlights or the entire content of the original recording. Next to recordings of TV broadcasts camcorder recordings can be edited providing direct access to most favorite scenes.

Completing its easy operation, the DVDR1000 offers all the standard as well as high end VCR functions. Easy-to-use on-screen menus make presetting of unattended recordings quicker and more convenient than ever. Just as with a conventional VCR, recordings can be added, deleted or overwritten at any time. New re-writable discs are ready for use immediately without any special preparation, just like conventional videotape. Recorded discs can be played back immediately - either on the recorder itself or on a DVD-Video player or PC DVD drive - with no finalization or other special steps.

Philips DVD Recorders make us of DVD+RW technology. DVD+RW was developed specifically for easy operation and interchangeability of discs between the different player formats, and has been optimized for both video recording and data storage.
