Message Text: Pioneer's new DVD recorders are capable of recording high-definition TV broadcasts to HDD in the original HD picture quality, and additionaly support recording to DVD-R DL disc in VR mode.

Pioneer introduces in Japan the DVR-DT90 and DVR-DT70 DVD recorders with a built-in HDD (500 GB and 250 GB respectively). These new HDD/DVD recorders, equipped with a digital TV tuner for terrestrial, BS, and 110-degree CS digital broadcasts, are capable of recording high-definition digital TV broadcast programs directly onto the HDD in the original high-definition picture quality. Pioneer plans to launch these two models for the Japanese market in late November, 2005 with no retail price suggested.

These models have the ability to record high-definition digital TV broadcasts directly to the HDD and playback in the original picture quality. In addition, the new recorders feature simultaneous recording of a digital TV broadcast to the HDD in the DR (Direct Recording) mode and an analog TV broadcast to the HDD or a DVD disc, and digital transfer of high-quality video via an HDMI output terminal. The newly-developed high-resolution (1920 x 1080) EPG greatly enhances easy operations in timer recording.



Both of the DVR-DT90 and DVR-DT70 have realized VR-mode recordings to a DVD-R DL disc. In the XP mode (Pioneer's highest-quality recording mode), a maximum of 1.8-hour video can be recorded onto a DVD-R DL disc. It allows users to move high-definition digital video recorded in the HDD to a disc at a higher picture quality than before.

Digital video material, such as content recorded on the HDD and commercially-supplied DVD titles, can be directly put out in digital form via an HDMI output terminal. By simply connecting the recorder's HDMI output terminal to a high-definition TV or projector equipped with an HDMI input terminal, users can enjoy high-quality video and audio. The up-scaling function to convert a 480i signal to a 1080i/720p signal makes it possible to reproduce analog TV broadcasts or sell-through DVDs in a picture quality that approaches to the high-definition quality.

Other features of the recorders include writing on DVD-R at 12x and on DVD-RW at 6x speeds, playback of DVD-RAM, DVD+R/+RW discs as well as DVD-R/DVD-RW discs. in addition, a DV input terminal can be used for copying video material from a DV camera to the HDD or a DVD disc.

At the same time, Pioneer announced the introduction in Japan of the DVR-330H-W (white) and DVR-330H-S (silver), DVD recorders with a built-in HDD (160 GB), mainly targeting the market for VCR replacements.



The DVR-330H-W and DVR-330H-S will be available in the Japanese market in the mid October 2005 with no retail price suggested.
