Progressive Scan DVD Recorder with Playback and DV Input, Silver


Progressive Scan DVD Recorder with ACCUTUNE 8482; Digital Tuner, 2x LP Horizontal Resolution (500 lines), Super Multi-Format Recording & Playback and DV Input, Silver


Don't Miss a Second of Those Important Scenes
Thanks to high-speed Quick Start, DVD-RAM discs are ready to record just one second after switching on the power. Being able to record almost immediately means you'll never miss the scenes you want to catch.

Accurate Tuning Delivers Beautiful Images
The Accutune 8482 Digital Tuner is a high performance hybrid tuner capable of receiving both digital and analog broadcasts. It uses a signal processor to effectively control noise and distortion, and its proprietary matching circuits allow it to transform and separate digital or analog signals. When digital broadcast signals drop out, generally the picture either disappears or becomes filled with block-noise, but the Accutune 8482 Digital Tuner produces a beautiful picture even under difficult reception conditions, such as when there are obstacles interfering with direct signal access.

Enjoy HD Quality Images with 2X LP Horizontal Resolution
This DVD recorder offers twice the horizontal resolution (500 lines vs. the 250-line standard) of many other DVD recorders when recording in LP mode. What does this mean? It means you can fit up to four hours of recordings on one DVD (4.7GB capacity) and still enjoy the crisp, vibrant and exceptionally detailed images delivered by 500 lines of horizontal resolution.

Record and Play Almost Any DVD Format
Incredibly versatile and multi-format-friendly, this DVD recorder can record to and play back just about any DVD you can throw at it. Specifically, it can record to and play back DVD-R/-RW/-RAM/+R/+RW discs, as well as DVD-Video, DVD-R (dual layer), DVD+R (dual layer), CD, CD-DA and CD-R/RW (including MP3 files). With a Panasonic DVD recorder, never think twice about what disc you need.

Get High-Resolution Progressive Playback
Panasonic DVD recorders are equipped with a high-precision progressive video processor that handles 30-frame progressive scan images1 on NTSC discs. This lets you enjoy high-resolution progressive playback of original DVD images.
