Hitachi Launches Super-Multi Format DVD/HD Recorder

The new Hitachi Memory Master range simplifies DVD recording with new features and all-disk format compatibility.

Hitachi has launched its new Memory Master range of super-multi format DVD/Hard disk recorders that are able to read and write to all DVD disk formats.

The Japanese giant offers three models equipped with hard drives with capacities up to 250GB. User is able to choose between the Memory Master DV-DS81E (80GB hard drive), the Memory Master DV-DS161E (160GB hard drive) and the Memory Master DV-DS251E (250GB hard drive). The new super multi-format recorders are able to record and play back DVD+R, DVD +R DL, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R and DVD-RW.

The Hitachi hard disk drives offer program recording times of 100 hours for the 80GB drive, 200 hours for the 160GB drive and more than 300 hrs for the 250GB drive. The recorders will also read finalized and non-finalised 8cm DVD-RAM and DVD-R disks from any of Hitachi's DVD camcorders.

A quick navigation system means that with a few clicks of the remote control, all your favourite programs can be automatically recorded and available for viewing at a convenient time. A triple-navigation facility means that customers can search for content by disk, by scene or by time. The disk navigation option shows the disk contents as thumbnails of the titles on the disk and offers a moving thumbnail picture with sound from the selected title. The scene navigation option shows a series of thumbnails of the indexed scenes on the disk and the time based navigation option lets you preview snapshots of whatever scene is recorded at the time you select.

In addition, the new Memory Master recorders also offer an intelligent "commercial advance" feature that allows for all commercial breaks to be automatically detected and skipped when playing back a recording.

Complete range

Hitachi is also launching the DV-RV8500E, a super-multi format DVD/VCR recorder that offers one-button dubbing between DVD and videotape. It has the same navigation system and user interface as the other Memory Master recorders.


For added connectivity the Memory Master DV-DS81E offers a DV input. For true digital audio and video content, the Memory Master DV-DS251E and DV-DS161E have a HDMI port as well as a DV input and SD memory card slot allowing viewing of photographs and other digital content from devices that use SD memory cards.


Hitachi's new super-multi format recorders are available across Europe. The availability schedule is as follows:

Memory Master DV-DS81E - September 2005
Memory Master DV-DS161E - September 2005
Memory Master DV-DS251E - September 2005
DV-RV8500E - August 2005
