Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder

Sony DVD Recorder

Created for first-time users, Sony's RDR-GX300 DVD recorder offers the widest selection of recording and viewing choices available, handling both DVD+RW/+R and DVD-RW/-R discs. It even includes an IR blaster for satellite and cable-box control. Instead of fumbling with 2 remote controls when using the timer function to record your favorite programs, the RDR-GX300's remote lets you select the channel directly from your set-top box(es).

An easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) grants easy recording from broadcast programs via off-air antenna, cable, or satellite receivers. The Timer Recording feature and Adjustable Recording Times (60-360 Minutes) enable simple TV to DVD recording. Additional features include a Variable Bit Rate for Linear and Non-Linear Editing, Video DAC with 108Mhz processing w/NSV, a 192 kHz 24 Bit Digital to Analog Converter, a Dolby® Digital and dts® Optical/Coaxial Output, and TV Virtual Surround with 4 Surround Modes.

Recording features include chasing playback and simultaneous recording and playback (in DVD-RW VR mode) for a greater recording and viewing flexibility. Chasing playback lets you rewind the recorded material while a program is still recording to view and catch up to the real time recording. Simultaneous recording and playback lets you watch pre-recorded content while recording new content to the same disc.

The RDR-GX300 also features Time Base Correction, pre-frame noise reduction, and pre-video equalizer technologies that rebalance and equalize video content before it's recorded onto a DVD, improving the original source content even before the encoding process begins. In the output phase, the RDR-GX300 recorder combines frame noise reduction, block noise reduction, and video equalizer technologies to produce a rich and textured visual with minimal picture interference from background artifacts or distortion.

Finally, the recorder offers proprietary DVD playback technology called Precision Cinema Progressive, which incorporates Pixel-by-Pixel I/P Conversion technology to augment and balance DVD-video elements. You'll need a high-definition or HD-ready television to appreciate this process. A 12-bit/108 MHz video D/A converter ensures exceptional picture quality for an unforgettable viewing experience, while audio decoding occurs at an amazing 192 kHz/24-bits.

What's in the Box: DVD recorder/player, remote control, remote batteries (2 x AA), a user's manual, stereo analog audio interconnect/composite-video cable, and an RF coaxial video cable.  Learn more...

Philips DVDR77 Progressive-Scan DVD Player/Recorder

Philips DVD Recorder

Philips' sleek DVDR77 DVD player/DVD recorder lets you share your home videos with others, relieve your VCR of its regular TV taping duties, and enjoy quality home theater on standard or high-definition televisions. Digital media fans will relish the unit's front-panel PCMCIA input, which reads image files from a range of media cards, including Memory Stick, Compact Flash, SD card, Smart Media, and Micro Drive. Got a DV camcorder, too? The unit's extensive inputs include an i.Link digital video jack, through which you can transfer and assemble your most treasured footage, archive all your old videotapes, or burn video from your PC straight to high-capacity DVD--up to six hours per disc side using either DVD+R or DVD+RW.

You can also use the DVDR77 like a VCR, burning televised programs directly to disc using the handy VCR Plus+ onscreen TV program guide. Recording functions include the ability to record picture DVDs (which hold up to 3,600 pictures), safe record, one-touch record (OTR), track append, track divide, track erase, automatic/manual chapter marker insertion, disc write protection, favorite scene selection, index picture screen (for instant content overview), and Selectable Index Pictures.

DVD+RW discs require no finalizing--you can record, eject, and play them with minimal fuss, thanks to "background formatting." This feature, which lowers total burning time, is an advantage over the "dash" formats. Other DVD+RW advantages include on-disc content editing and multisession writing.

And, because of DVD+RW and DVD+R's compatibility with most existing DVD players, they're a great way for you to share your special memories with family and friends. The unit's Virtual Time Base Corrector ensures better-than-original copies from old video tapes.

The DVDR77 is also a first-rate DVD player, featuring progressive-scan video outputs, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound passthrough, MP3 CD playback (CD-R/CD-RW), and compatibility with most DVD media (including video-mode DVD-R and DVD-RW).

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVDR77 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

Top-of-the-line component-video inputs and outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video inputs and outputs bring compatibility with nearly any video component and television monitor. Audio inputs consist of two-channel analog jacks with 16-bit analog-to-digital conversion and Dolby Digital 2.0 audio compression (compression is non-defeatable).

Two sets of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: 3D Sound simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).

Philips DVDR77 Progressive-Scan DVD Player/Recorder Features:

Preserve Your Memories: Capture, edit, and preserve your precious memories with Philips DVDR77 DVD Recorder. Create a DVD from any source using the i.LINK digital connection. Transfer your most precious moments captured with your camcorder or archive all your old video tapes straight to DVD.

Favorite Scene Selection: Easily remove commercials from a recorded movie, or take out the less interesting parts of your home videos directly from your DVD Recorder.

Index Picture Screen: Never again wonder what's on a disc, where a program was recorded or whether there is any free space. The Index Picture Screen is a DVD menu created on every DVD+RW/+R disc. It gives you an instant overview and easy access, so you can directly see what's on a disc.

Recording Time 6 hrs: Thanks to Variable Bit Rate technology, this Philips DVD recorder gives you a choice of 6 recording modes: HQ 1hr, SP 2hrs, SP+ 2 ˝ hrs, LP 3hrs, EP 4hrs and EP+ 6hrs. This ensures there’s a mode that’s right for anything you want to record.

Progressive Scan: You want to enjoy sharper images. Progressive Scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeable sharper picture.

Component Video Input: Component Video is a top-quality video connection ideal for connecting DVD players to high-end TV sets or projectors.

VCR Plus+: With VCR Plus+, you only need to enter the 'Pluscode' to program your timer. No more setting the start time, the end time, the date and the channel.

DVD Rewritable Compatability: Playback of the most compatible DVD recording format in the world, DVD+RW and DVD+R. 

What's in the Box: DVD player/recorder, remote control, remote batteries, RCA cables, and a user's manual.

What is a DVD recorder and how is it different from a DVD burner?

A DVD recorder is a standalone unit that resembles and functions very much like a VCR. All DVD recorders can record from any analog video source (some can also record from Digital camcorders via firewire). Like a VCR, DVD recorders all have AV inputs as well as onboard TV tuner for recording TV shows.

A DVD burner refers to a unit that is either an external add-on or internal DVD drive (like a CDR/RW drive) that can record video, but can also read and write computer data and store it on a blank DVD disc.

On the other hand, standalone DVD recorders have no ability to read or write computer data. However, in order to record video and audio onto a PC-DVD burner the user must input the video to the computer's hard drive using Firewire, USB, or S-Video through a video card and then copy the resultant files from the hard drive onto a blank DVD disk, whereas a standalone DVD recorder can record from video sources in real time, direct to a blank DVD.
