Sony's DVDirect Recorder Burns DVD Discs Without a Computer


Sony's forthcoming VRD-MC1 DVD recorder allows burning your home videos and photos directly onto DVD media, without the need for a computer.

Like the presently available VRD-VC20 model, the new VRD-MC1 recorder can transfer home video footage in real-time from a camcorder or VCR tape to a DVD without a computer, and also enables "computer free" recording of digital still images directly from memory cards to DVD as a slideshow for playback on most home DVD players and PC DVD-ROM drives.

The new recorder can also be directly connected to PictBridge compatible photo printers for printing individual digital pictures from a memory card or from a DVD disc.

One side of the new DVDirect model incorporates digital and analog video/audio inputs, enabling direct connection of a camcorder or VCR to transfer tape-based videos to DVD. On the other side, it sports slots for five of the most popular digital camera memory cards.

For home video transfers, the VRD-MC1 includes a digital video (DV) input (i.LINK/FireWire/IEEE 1394) that allows for quick video transfers from a digital camcorder, including full camcorder control from the DVDirect recorder in synchronized recording mode. It also has analog S-Video and Composite Video inputs.

The new model can record digital still images directly from a Memory Stick and Memory Stick Duo storage media, Compact Flash, Secure Digital (SD), and xD cards to a DVD, creating a slideshow that can be played back on a DVD player, or simply used as a backup DVD of the images for storage or printing. When recording digital images, the DVDirect recorder keeps the JPEG files in their original high resolution format, and is capable of printing them directly from a photo DVD to a PictBridge-enabled printer.

The VRD-MC1 features a two-inch color LCD screen for previewing video and images when used in stand-alone mode. It can burn up to 12 hours of high-quality hardware encoded MPEG-2 video on DVD+R DL Double Layer discs.

For additional functionality, the new DVDirect model can also be connected to a PC for more advanced DVD video projects.

The VRD-MC1 recorder comes with the Nero software suite to use when it is attached to a PC via USB 2.0.

In computer-attached mode, the VRD-MC1 model can burn DVD+R and DVD-R discs at 16X, which equates to about six minutes of recording time. It also supports 8X DVD+R DL, 4X DVD-R DL, 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 48X CD-R and 24X CD-RW recording speeds.

The new DVDirect recorder (model VRD-MC1) will be available early next month for $299. Sony will continue to offer the existing video-only VRD-VC20 model for about $230.
