    Panasonic unleashes new hard disc DVD recorder down under
    Posted by Dan Bell on 22 November 2004 - 01:38 - Source: PC World Australia

    We reported on this network capable DVD hard disc recorder back in September, but now we have a little more information courtesy of PC World. Seems they have already started shipping to consumers in Australia, but since this is a high end unit, production is expected to be only about 3,000 units per month. High end is an accurate description, because these don't come cheap. The DMR-E500H has a 400G-byte hard disk capable of storing up to 709 hours of recording in extended play (EP) mode. It features remote programming via PC or even a mobile phone! It is available now for $3,299.

    The DMR-E500H has an Ethernet port that allows consumers to view MPEG4 video and JPEG photos stored on the recorder on their PCs. Multiple recorders can also be linked by LAN, so that a DVD playing on one machine can been viewed in more than one room. In Japan, people using Panasonic's online video recording service can program their recorder through their mobile phone.

    The DMR-E500H has a maximum speed of 64x when recording in EP mode from a hard disc to DVD-R, allowing it to record a 60-minute program in 56 seconds, which Panasonic claimed is the fastest in the industry. The recorder has a maximum speed of 40x when recording in EP mode from hard disc to DVD-RAM.

    "The DMR-E500H means network convenience combined with a home server," said Shunzo Ushimaru, director of Panasonic's corporate marketing division.
