For Immediate Release
JVC TO UNVEIL BLU-RAY AND HDD
COMBO DECKS AT CEDIA EXPO 2009
- WAYNE, NJ (September 10, 2009)
– JVC Professional Products,
division of JVC U.S.A., will introduce its new SR-HD1500 and
SR-HD1250 Blu-ray disc and HDD recorders at
CEDIA EXPO Sept. 10-13 at the Georgia World Conference Center in
Atlanta (Booth 1043). The latest in
JVC’s series of high performance professional combo decks, the
units feature a built-in Blu-ray recorder
and an internal hard disk drive for easy duplication and disc
authoring without a PC.
- With the SR-HD1500
and SR-HD1250, users can record and author professional BDMV (with
menu) or BDAV discs. Advanced MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 (H.264) encoding
provides support for HD and SD sources, and a built-in format
converter can downconvert HD content for recording to a standard
DVD. The units support BD-R or BD-RE (erasable) Blu-ray discs.
- The decks offer a variety of digital inputs,
including USB and i.Link (IEEE-1394) ports and an SDHC card slot,
for wide compatibility with today’s digital SD and HD camcorders.
Composite and S-Video inputs provide interfaces for legacy analog
devices as well.
- Users can transfer videos from a camcorder or
other device to the internal hard drive. Then, using a simple,
menu-driven interface, edited clips can be assembled into a
completed project and recorded to Blu-ray discs. Discs can also be
authored for auto-start or repeat playback, which provide ideal
options for presentations, kiosks, and point-of-sale displays.
- Unprotected DVD and Blu-ray discs are easily
duplicated as well. Simply insert the original disc into the drive,
then specify how many copies to make. Disc content is temporarily
stored to the hard drive, then burned to blank discs.
- Both models include component
and HDMI outputs for flexible monitoring options. The
SR-HD1500 features a 500 GB hard drive, plus an RS-232C terminal and
support for .MOV files (for Apple Final Cut Pro), which makes it
compatible with footage recorded with JVC GY-HM100 and GY-HM700
ProHD camcorders in the SP (19/25 Mbps) mode. The SR-HD1250 has a
250 GB hard drive, but does not include RS-232C connectivity of .MOV
- The SR-HD1500 has an MSRP of $2,550
and the SR-HD1250 has an MSRP of $1,995.
The combo decks will be available in October 2009.
