Sony unveils line of dual RW home DVD recorders with hard disk


Sony unveiled a lineup of dual compatible +RW/- RW DVD home recorders. They're designed for both first time users as well as sophisticated time shifters and produce high quality DVD recording and unsurpassed picture performance from a variety of original sources.

Compatible with popular DVD+RW/+R and DVD-RW/-R discs, the new DVD recorders give users the widest selection of recording and viewing choices. The three new models also incorporate several picture improvement technologies to create enhanced DVD recordings and an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI). In addition, these models offer easy recording from broadcast programs via off-air antenna, cable, or satellite receivers.

The new RDR-GX300 includes many advanced features found in last year's model such as the proprietary Precision Cinema Progressive™, a DVD playback technology which incorporates Pixel-by-Pixel I/P Conversion technology to augment and balance DVD-video elements. Additionally, a 12bit/108MHz Video D/A Converter ensures high picture quality.

It also features Time Base Correction, Pre Frame Noise Reduction and Pre-video Equalizer technologies that rebalance and equalize video content before it is recorded onto a DVD, improving the original source content even before the encoding process begins. This impressive process is especially beneficial when recording from lower resolution video sources such as VHS tapes and older camcorder media formats.

In the output phase, the RDR-GX300's Post Frame Noise Reduction, Block Noise Reduction and Video Equalizer technologies combine to produce a richly textured visual rendition while minimizing picture interference caused by background artifacts or distortion.

New features added to the recorder include chasing playback, simultaneous recording and playback (DVD-RW VR mode). Chasing playback allows viewers to rewind the recorded material while it's still recording to view and catch up to the real time recording. Simultaneous recording and playback allows viewers to watch pre-recorded content while recording new content on the same disc.

Another convenience feature new to the recorder is its ability to control satellite receivers and cable boxes through the unit's IR blaster. Instead of fumbling with two remote controls when using the "timer" function to record your favorite program, the RDR-GX300 remote control allows users to select the channel directly from the set top boxes.

The RDR-GX300 DVD dual RW recorder will be available in July for about $500.
