* Recordable Disc Type
* Time Slip Function:
Our Time Slip Function consists of two features designed to give you
added flexibility and control when making DVD recordings: Chasing
Playback and Simultaneous Record & Play. With Chasing Playback, you
don't have to wait for an entire program to be recorded before watching
it from beginning to end. This feature allows you to watch a program
that's currently being recorded from any point that's already been
recorded -- while continuing to record the live program in progress.
Simultaneous Record & Play allows you to record a program onto a disc
while simultaneously watching any other program that's previously been
recorded on the same disc.
* Rapid Random Access, Recording & Playback
Jump directly to any spot on a disc and begin playback or recording
right away. Even if there is no sequential area of empty space
available, our DVD recorders can record data on available space
throughout the rest of the disc. You will also avoid searching for a
blank spot to start recording, or accidentally recording over desired
* Playlist Playback
Perform simple non-linear video editing, such as rearranging the order
of scenes, skipping over unwanted scenes, or copying selections -- to
create custom playlists of favorite scenes on a disc.
* Direct Navigator
Makes it easy to find a previously recorded program on a disc. A list of
recording dates, times, channels and (user-entered) titles are shown on
screen. When you move the cursor to any particular recording, the
segment is played in the background, so playback can begin immediately
upon selection. Program deletion, protection, and title input are also
easy to perform. This feature can handle up to 99 titles at once.

Combines brightness control with picture noise canceling to give you an
improved picture under certain viewing conditions. The result is
cinema-like luminance and color and a stunning picture. Plus, this
feature improves the visibility of details in dark scenes by
automatically adjusting the picture contrast. It even helps to suppress
color smearing as well.
* Dialogue Enhancer
Most of the movie dialogue recorded in surround sound formats (Dolby
Digital, DTS*, Dolby Pro Logic) is heard through the center channel
speaker, and sometimes this channel can be overwhelmed by particularly
loud sounds emanating from the other speakers in your surround sound
system. The Dialogue Enhancer increases the center channel volume
(relative to other channels), making movie dialogue easier to hear and
