Convert Home Movies To DVD - No PC Required

Sony's $299 next-generation DVDirect recorder lets you convert footage in real-time from a digital camcorder to a DVD without a PC.

Sony's $299 next-generation DVDirect recorder lets you convert footage in real-time from a digital camcorder to a DVD without a PC.

Transferring home movies to DVDs is as easy as connecting a camcorder to the DVDirect drive and pressing the record button. The recorder automatically creates a DVD menu and can automatically or manually generate titles and chapters on a disc, making videos easier to watch.

It can be attached to a computer for more advanced DVD burning projects.

The DVDirect recorder works with analog camcorders, VCRs and other video sources.

The new second-generation model includes a digital video input that allows for quick and easy high-quality video transfers from a digital camcorder, including full camcorder control from DVDirect in synchronized recording mode.

Sony has also added stand-alone recording support for DVD-R and DVD-RW discs, in addition to DVD+R, DVD+R double layer (DL) and DVD+RW discs.

The DVDirect recorder can burn up to 12 hours of high-quality hardware encoded MPEG-2 video onto compatible DVD+R DL discs or up to six hours onto standard single layer discs.

DVDirect can be attached to a PC via USB 2.0 for advanced DVD authoring and burning projects, such as adding graphics and music to home movies.

In computer-attached mode, DVDirect can burn DVD-R and DVD+R discs at 16X, which equates to about six minutes of recording time. It also supports 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 48X CD-R and 24X CD-RW recording speeds.

The hybrid DVD recorder comes with the Nero software suite to use when it is attached to a computer. The package features software for DVD video authoring and DVD/CD burning, as well as for packet writing, so you can burn files and folders by dragging them to the icon of a DVD+RW/CD-RW disc.

Rounding out the bundle are DVD-video playing software, backup software, virtual disc drive software, management/jukebox software, disc label creation software and drive tool software. All tasks and applications are accessible via the Nero StartSmart launcher, which makes it simple to load all necessary software, according to Sony.

The DVDirect recorder (model VRD-VC20) will be available in May.
