Waitec VISION HR DVD Recorder - page 2

Unpacking - Control Menu

The recorder's front panel is very attractive with a very nice design. The loading tray is located in the middle, with the power switch on the left and several buttons conveniently placed on the right for operating the unit.

The pictures below show the inside of the Vision HR after removing the cover, an action that is not recommended, as it voids the manufacturer's warranty. (Click on the image for an enlarged view).

The CS98200 is a highly-integrated processor that provides all of the audio and video processing functions needed for the next generation of feature-rich DVD players, DVD receivers and Internet DVD applications. Tomorrow's features available today on a single chip solution that include DVD-Audio, MP3/WMA, AAC, Kodak Picture CD, Dolby AC-3, Dolby ProLogic, and DTS decoding. It supports CD formats, DVD navigation, disk control, video decoding and up to eight channels of output. An extension of the Cirrus' CS98000 DVD product line, the CS98200 integrates six 10-bit video digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and TV encoding with progressive scan functionality. Progressive scan video provides high resolution and eliminates the "flickering" effect present in traditional video playback. Other features enabled by this integrated chip include karaoke functionality and video special effects.

This is the main chipset for the internal drive. As can be seen, it is manufactured by Ricoh.

As you can see, the VISION HR has all the appropriate connections. However, there's no DD5.1 CH built-in decoder.

The retail package also includes a remote control, with which you'll need to spend a little time to get acquainted. Click on the image for an enlarged view.

Below is the players' main screen, which appears every time you turn the player on.

Choosing setup, you will see the following screens:

You can also program the unit for scheduled recording.
