Product Specifications

Having been deeply involved with the development of the DVD-RAM format, Panasonic has released a DVD Video Recorder that can record on both DVD-RAM discs and DVD-R discs. Capable of high-speed data transmission and high-speed random access, this recorder offers countless recording and playback possibilities. Using the DMR-E20, you can record up to 12 hours of video on new 2-sided, 9.4GB DVD-RAM discs. These discs can be played back on a DVD-RAM compatible DVD player - such as Panasonic's DVD-RP91 or DVD-H2000. Instead of just shooting videos, now you can edit them too. Random access makes it easy to perform simple non-linear editing using just a single DVD Video Recorder, with no need for additional editing equipment. Two encoding technologies are combined, Real time VBR (Variable Bit Rate) and Visibility Modulation Technology, to provide MPEG2 recording with superb picture quality. Here's how it works: Real Time VBR adjusts the bit rate according to video signal complexity, in order to optimize the compression ratio. At the same time, Visibility Modulation Technology reduces compression for the most noticeable parts of each signal while it filters out unimportant data to raise compression in other areas. This combination helps assure incredible picture quality for your preferred DVD-RAM recording mode. You can set the DMR-E20 to a variety of recording modes, each depending on average bit rate. EP mode yields the most recording time, LP & SP mode provide less recording time with higher quality recording, and XP mode gives you the highest quality recording. There's also the FR (Flexible Recording) mode that lets you record with the best picture quality possible for the recording time and remaining space on the disc. Input TBC, 3D Y/C separation circuitry, and 3D digital noise reduction are particularly effective when recording from analog video sources such as conventional VHS or S-VHS VCRs. Input TBC is a built-in time base corrector that delivers highly stable, natural images. The 3D Y/C Separation Circuitry minimizes the dot crawl and color smearing caused by interference between the video signal's Y and C color subcomponents. And, 3D Digital Noise Reduction effectively removes noise components from the signal during playback.
