Product Specifications

With a couple of button presses on the DVD Recorder/VCR Combo (model DRC8300N), consumers can easily transfer home videos from a VHS tape directly onto a DVD. More sophisticated editing is also a snap with programmable tape playback, allowing users to select only those scenes they want to copy before recording to disc. You can even split titles or hide unwanted chapters after recording the content to a DVD+RW disc. Incorporating progressive scan DVD playback capability and a 4-head HiFi VCR, the DRC8300N offers numerous features to enhance the viewing and recording experience. Scene Again instant replay accesses previously viewed DVD or tape segments in 10-second increments, and a 30-second "Advance" function allows viewers to skip ahead to preferred scenes on DVDs or tape. An on-screen DVD disc library stores up to 400 titles, allowing users to easily sort and locate any title they have recorded using the DRC8300N. You can even find the discs with the most available blank space for new recordings. The on-screen keyboard makes it easy for consumers to create and edit program names for all of their personal recordings. Six recording modes are available - ranging from one to eight hours and SmartRecord automatically adjusts the quality of the recording to fit the available disc space. Other features include S-Video inputs, for simple recording and playback from camcorders, an mp3 decoder for playing mp3 discs and Digital PhotoView for displaying JPEG files. The player also includes a time base corrector and digital noise reduction circuitry that eliminates picture jitters and reduces noise from videotape playback to significantly improve the quality of recordings from videocassette recorders or camcorders. Easily integrated into an existing home theatre system, the DRC8300N includes Dolby Digital and DTS compatible digital optical output, two composite video inputs, one composite video output, analog audio inputs and outputs, RF coaxial input/output and a component video output.
