Pioneer unveils multiple drive professional DVD-Video recorder


Pioneer Electronics strengthens its leadership role in DVD technology with the unveiling of its PRV-LX1 professional DVD-Video recorder at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Conference 2003 in Las Vegas. Designed and built based on direct feedback from customers and professional video users, the PRV-LX1 is the industry's first modular DVD-Video recorder specifically designed for the professional industrial video market.

Among the key features of the PRV-LX1 is its real-time video recording capabilities, which streamlines the DVD video capture, compression, authoring and recording processes while operating with the simplicity of a VTR. Users now have an alternative to high end PC-based DVD authoring systems because the PRV-LX1 is designed to easily transfer video and audio content to DVD while offering the ability to customize DVD menus and chapter points - a first for a standalone video recorder. Video and audio content can be recorded from multiple sources direct to DVD or to the PRV-LX1's internal hard disk drive. The PRV-LX1 also allows users to simultaneously record to both the internal hard disk drive and to DVD.

"The PRV-LX1 represents Pioneer's interest in listening to customer input and developing innovative DVD products that meet the needs of the industry," said Andy Parsons, senior vice president of the industrial video and mass storage group for the Business Solutions Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "Pioneer's 'simple but powerful' product philosophy has been applied in the creation of the PRV-LX1. Its easy set-up and operation enables users to quickly become familiar with its many features and capabilities."

Building on the success of the PRV-9000 DVD-Video recorder launched at NAB 2002, the PRV-LX1 is a stand-alone unit with a significantly expanded feature set targeted at professional video users. A base PRV-LX1 is equipped with a standard DVD-R/RW recordable drive and 120GB internal hard disk drive. An optional second DVD-R/RW drive can be installed in the unit, which allows simultaneous recording to two DVD discs at once. Video inputs and outputs are component video (Y, Pb, Pr), composite, S-video and DV (IEEE-1394). Audio inputs and outputs include 2 channel balanced (XLR), 2 channel unbalanced (RCA), and coaxial digital audio output (for playback through external Dolby Digital decoders). Other interfaces and connections in the PRV-LX1 include a RS-422A control interface, Ethernet, VGA output, USB2, external sync, and a headphone jack with volume control. Pioneer will offer its customers the option of adding a serial digital (SDI)/AES EBU input/output board set in the fourth quarter of 2003.

To help future-proof the PRV-LX1, the unit employs a Linux-based operating system. This new architecture provides the potential to extend the capabilities of the recorder in response to the evolving needs of professional video customers and industry trends.

Among the many target markets for the PRV-LX1 are film and video production, post-production facilities, CATV and broadcast facilities, DVD authoring and transfer service providers, and event videographers. Video producers in the corporate, higher education, medical, government and military sectors will also benefit from the PRV-LX1's extensive capabilities. Professional video customers and serious video users in any industry will be able to easily perform such tasks as one-step conversion of existing content from videotape formats to DVD, easy authoring of video projects and archiving video tape assets to the robust DVD-Video format.



Pricing and Availability



The PRV-LX1 is expected to begin shipping in June 2003 with a list price of US$3,995. The optional second DVD-R/RW drive will also be available at a list price of US$495.
