Both the BD-HDW20 (1TB) and the BD-HDW15 with a (500GB) models are capable of recording and playing back digital HDTV data. In designing these AQUOS Blu-ray Disc Recorders, Sharp placed emphasis on faithfully reproducing high-resolution video images from digital broadcasts and Blu-ray discs on the AQUOS LCD TV. They are equipped with hard drives from 500 GB to 1 TB in capacity, and also support dubbing (moving) video from the hard drive to BD-RE or BD-R discs. HDTV programs recorded on the hard disk can be dubbed (moved) to Blu-ray discs.



Plus, these models are equipped with AQUOS Fami-Link that enhances the compatibility between AQUOS LCD TVs and AQUOS Audio Systems. An accessory Fami-Link Remote is provided to enable both the AQUOS LCD TV and these units to be operated using a single remote control. AQUOS Fami-Link offers even greater compatibility with AQUOS LCD TVs beyond simple operation, including Photo System for viewing photographs, and other AQUOS Fami-Link functions based on connection via HDMI to the television.

The devices also support 1080/24p video output to enable viewing Blu-ray movies at the correct frame rate in which they were filmed for the true flavor of the cinema. Plus, supports next-generation audio (bit-stream audio output) for multi-channel sound.

Sharp plans to introduce the new BD recorders in Japan on December 1.
