JVC to unveil new Blu-ray disc and HDD recorder combo deks

JVC SR-HD1250VC 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 support.

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.
