Two Preset & User Adjustable Video Quality Options.
Simultaneous PLAY & RECORD with DVD-RAM media.
Easy Off-Air Recording with Advanced Timer Programming
Super Multi-Drive Recorder: DVD-RAM is a high-capacity, high-performance optical disk that allows data to be read, written, and erased more than 100,000 times. It is designed to work exactly like a floppy disk, allowing users to copy and delete files from it and use it to run programs. DVD-R discs are write-once media that are currently compatible with most DVD-Video players sold today. The D-R1 also offers additional flexibility with rewritable DVD-RW media used in some personal computer drives.
Built-in DVD-R capability offers compatibility with virtually all DVD-Video players
Record up to 8 hours of programming using a double-sided 9.4GB DVD-RAM disc
ColorStream Pro® Component Video Outputs: These outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped progressive scan TV. When this connection is utilized with today's HD-compatible sets, typical NTSC artifacts—like video noise, dot crawl, and flicker—are virtually eliminated, resulting in a low-noise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity.
Digital Cinema Progressive (3:2 Pulldown): Delivers the smoothest, most film-like images to any progressive scan television, such as an HD-compatible one, and ensures maximum resolution.
Auto Title/Chapter/Thumbnail Creation: When recording, the D-R1 automatically captures the first video frame and displays it as the chapter mark. Users can then choose to designate chapter marks with custom screen captures, or Thumbnails, of their own choice for future reference.
(E.A.M.) Enhanced Audio Mode: This feature includes three modes: NORMAL (off mode), 3-D (virtual surround sound enhancement from multichannel content), and DIALOGUE Expander (which enhances center channel [dialogue] frequencies during playback of multichannel content).
Benefit of DIALOGUE: Great for "late night" listening when volume levels are low but dialogue intellibibility is of concern.
QSound™ Virtual Surround Sound: Provides a simulated surround sound effect from sources that contain only a stereo soundtrack. Convenient when playing older DVD films or for use with home theaters not equipped with multi-channel playback compatibility.
Coaxial & TosLinkâ Digital Audio Outputs: Sends the audio signal to an audio/video receiver in its digital form allowing access to the Dolby Digitalâ/DTSâ track encoded on the DVD disc.
Time Slip: This feature allows the user to begin watching a recording that is already in progress. A Time Slip feature lets you 'pause' a live recording and then return to it later. During playback of both modes, a bar graph can be displayed on-screen depicting the 'progress' or location of the playback signal with regards to the real time recorded signal.
Front Panel A/V & IEEE1394DV Inputs: There are composite audio & video inputs, as well as RCA L/R inputs on the front panel of the unit for ease of camcorder dubbing. Additionally, an IEEE1394 'Firewire' jack is also available from the front panel for interfacing compatible digital video camcorders.
VCR Plus+™ Timer Recording: The DR-1 features a 181-channel cable compatible tuner and a 2-month, 32-event timer programming functionality. Users may input their own program data, or take advantage of the built-in Gemstar VCR+ technology for simple timer event programming. Battery Backup ensures that you will not lose your programming during power outages, and the XDS Auto Clock Set function ensures you player will never blink 12:00 again.
Create Custom Play Lists: The D-R1 allows the user to generate and save custom playlists using any titles and/chapters. Each compilation of desired footage can be separately titled and edited (for removal of commercials or other unwanted sections) and then seamlessly played back for review.
