Samsung DVD-H40

 

It's a simple idea with obvious commercial potential: time shifting (recording programmes to watch at a more convenient time) is a popular use of VCRs; VCRs are on the way out because their picture quality and ease of use doesn't match that of DVDs;...

Product Specifications

Have you ever wondered how you can create a home theatre in your own home? Here your imagination becomes reality. DVD-H40 brings all the functionality you've been dreaming of in a DVD player. Samsung's digital hard disk drive recording enables the viewer to record and playback a perfect image every time. The image is always as good as the first time you saw it. Time shift allows the user, whilst recording a program onto the HDD, to rewind up to 30 minutes, playback the imagery whilst still recording the live time. I.e. watching football, if you miss a goal the viewer can watch it over and over again knowing the recording is still activating. The ability to playback from the HDD disk drive whilst recording onto this media at the same time, enables the viewer to have the flexibility to watch a recorded program whilst recording the next installment. The unit will automatically ensure that the recording quality will be the best possible dependent upon the recording mode chosen. Dependent on the screens image the unit will only take the most important data necessary to create the best possible recording. Save everything onto this one box solution. The HDD has the ability to store TV recordings, digital camera, digital still camera and MP3 music files. There is something to enjoy for everyone.
