Pretec demonstrates 2mp DSC & MPEG4 Tapeless Digital Camcorder with 30fps TV Quality


Pretec Electronics Corp. the leading digital imaging and memory card provider, announces the launch of DV4200, a revolutionary MPEG4 digital camcorder with 2.1 mega pixel digital still camera.

DV4200 is a tapeless digital camcorder capable of storing up to 3 hours of video, at VHS quality or better, with a 512MB flash memory card and can also function as a digital still camera. Using high compression ratio MPEG4 technology with patented techniques of Advanced Simple profile in 1/4 pixel resolution, DV-4200 is the first and only product in the world to reach 30 frames per second real-time using MPEG4 encoding/decoding, hence delivering a superb digital video quality to existing TV system.

The MPEG4 compression file can also make every Windows-powered computer to be an Audio/Video player for DV-4200 by using Microsoft WMP or other MPEG4 decoding software. Still image pictures can be taken at native resolution of 2.1 mega pixel, making DV-4200 one of the highest resolution still image and best picture quality camcorders among all of the digital camcorders available in the market today.

With dimension of 112 x 67 x48mm, weights 285g, DV-4200 is smaller than most DV Camcorders today. Compared with other MPEG4 digital camcorder in the market today with 10-15fps (200lux low light sensitivity), VGA still image picture and mono AAC audio, DV-4200 is much superior and practical for every office or family use with 30fps (30lux low light sensitivity), 2.1mp still image picture and stereo AAC audio. When optional AV-in feature is selected, user can transfer all of its favorite movies or recordings on different medias (VHS tape, VCD, DVD, etc.) to MPEG4 files stored in flash memory card, hard disk or CD. Retail pricing is expected to be less than $499, available throughout the world start from Q2 2003.

Because of the adoption of MPEG4, flash memory card and USB technologies, DV-4200 is not only a consumer electronics device, but also a PC peripheral due to its easy connection and interfacing with PC. Since there are no mechanical moving parts, MPEG4 digital camcorder can be more compact (to the size of a cigarette pack), cheaper, easier to use, and less prone to mechanical failures. Pretec will offer higher resolution DSC and MPEG4 digital camcorder up to DVD and HDTV quality by early 2004, better than today's DV, with much smaller file size in MPEG4 format.
