* Time Slip Functions
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
do not 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 is currently being recorded from any point that has 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 has previously been
recorded on the same disc.
* Time Slip Button
Just press the Time Slip button once during recording to start playing
back the scene recorded 30 seconds before. You can also use the cursor
keys to return to any point from 1 to 480 minutes ago while watching the
playback on a screen.
* Quick View (x1.3)
This recorder is able to play back at 1.3 times the normal speed (cannot
be used with program recorded in the Linear PCM format, or with DVD-R or
DVD-Video discs), complete with sound, so you can quickly check the
contents of a recorded program when you do not have time to watch it at
normal speed. This feature can even be used during Chasing Playback
(cannot be used while recording in XP or FR mode).
* Progressive Scan
This unit is equipped with a high-precision progressive video processor
that handles 30-frame progressive scan images on NTSC discs. This lets
you enjoy high-resolution progressive playback of original DVD images.
* Playlist Playback
You can select from among the scenes recorded on a disc and arrange them
in any order you want, to create your own original scenario, then save
it as a playlist. You can also enjoy seamless transitions between edited
* One-Touch Record & Play Function
The One-Touch Record feature seeks out empty space on a disc before it
begins recording, eliminating the possibility of accidentally recording
over a previously recorded program. With the One-Touch Play feature,
blank portions of the disc are automatically skipped, saving you the
need to manually search for the desired program.
* High Quality Picture DVD-R Recording
* DVD-Audio Playback (2-channel)
* MP3 Playback
Capable of playing MP3 audio files stored on CD-R/RW formatted discs.
Select models allow you to generate a playlist of your favorite songs or
use repeat and random play modes to add variety.
* 4-Head Hi-Fi VCR
Offers the excitement of true, high fidelity stereo sound with a dynamic
range of more than 90 decibels. And, with two of its four video head
dedicated to recording and playback in the SP speed, and the other two
for SLP, you will enjoy outstanding picture quality in both speeds.
* SQPB (S-VHS Quasi Playback)
Allows VHS VCR to play back a tape recorded in Super VHS, with regular
VHS resolution. It is a convenient way to watch tapes recorded using an
S-VHS deck or camcorder.
* One-Touch 2-Way Transfer (DVD <-> VHS)
Simply press a button, and One-touch 2-way Transfer lets you transfer
material from a VHS tape to a DVD-RAM/DVD-R disc or vice versa. This
means you can easily record your entire video library to DVD for a
collection that takes up much less space. During tape-to-DVD-RAM
transfer, there is also a handy function that reads recording start
(VISS) signals on a tape, and automatically creates a program list on
the DVD-RAM disc.
* VCR Plus+
With the VCR Plus+ system and the PlusCode numbers published in over 500
newspaper TV listings throughout the country, as well as in every
edition of TV Guide, programming your VCR is simple. After you enter
the respective PlusCode number for the program you want to record, the
VCR timer is set.
* SD/PC Card Slot
These card slots enable faster, easier networking and file sharing
between your DVD Recorder and many personal computers, digital cameras,
and SD A/V devices.
* 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
* 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.
* Selectable Recording Modes
You can set your recorder to one of five different recording speeds,
each varying in recording quality and length. EP mode yields the most
recording time, LP & SP modes provide less recording time with higher
quality recording, and XP mode gives you the highest quality recording.
There is also the FR (Flexible Recording) mode that lets you record with
the best picture quality possible for the recording time and remaining
space on the disc.

* 54MHz/10-bit Video D/A Converter
Using a 54MHz video D/A converter, video is processed four times faster
with Oversampling technology. This is twice the usual 27MHz speed,
helping to give potentially sharp, high resolution images for a distinct
rendering of fine patterns.

* Cinema Mode
Lessens glare, providing colors that are more cinema-like, and picture
resolution that is gentler to the eyes. It also improves the visibility
of details in dark scenes by automatically adjusting picture contrast,
and 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
