Product Specifications

DMR-E80H is a Progressive-Scan DVD Video Recorder with Built-in 80 GB Hard Disk & Time Slip Playback; it records to DVD-RAM and DVD-R disks. This DVD Recorder can record to both high-capacity DVD-RAM disks and DVD-R disks. DVD-RAM disks can be rewritten up to an incredible 100, 000 times and come in the double-sided (9.4GB capacity) and single-sided (4.7GB) varieties in both cartridge (provides additional protection) and non-cartridge types, all of which can be used with Panasonic recorders. DVD-RAM disks can be played back on its DVD-RAM-compatible DVD home players and portable players. DVD-R disks are write-once and can be played on most consumer DVD players. In addition, the smaller, 8 cm DVD-RAM and DVD-R disks utilized for its VDR-M30 DVD camcorder can be used for recording and playback in DVD recorders, too. Now you no longer have to wait for an entire program to be recorded before watching it from beginning to end. With chasing playback, an element of the Time Slip feature, you can skip back to watch a program currently being recorded from any point that's already been recorded - while continuing to record the live program in progress. The second part of the Time Slip feature, Simultaneous Recording and Playback lets you record a program onto a disk while you're watching any other program that's previously been recorded on the same disk. Progressive scanning, otherwise known as 480P (p=progressive), creates a picture signal with double the scan lines of a conventional interlaced picture, 480I (I=interlaced), to create a noticeably sharper image. The 480P image offers higher picture resolution and eliminates virtually all motion artifacts. Even on large screens, the progressive scan lines are barely noticeable and picture flickering is greatly reduced, so you can enjoy extended viewing without eye fatigue. There are also many advantages to progressive conversion. Panasonic progressive-scan DVD players can handle both progressive and conventional interlaced video.
