Item Description:
Progressive Scan DVD Video Recorder with Built-in 400 GB Hard Disk, Ethernet Network Connection, and TV Guide On Screen.





Panasonic's DMR-E500HS is a digital video marvel that combines a wealth of video recording and playback options in a single component. It delivers sharp, clear pictures from your DVD movies and lets you make brilliant recordings to blank DVD-R and DVD-RAM discs. But what really makes the DMR-E500HS special is its incredible, built-in 400GB hard drive - you can store up to 89 hours of video in the highest-quality XP mode, or a 709 hours of video in EP mode!

To help take advantage of all that recording capacity, the DMR-E500HS comes with a built-in TV Guide On Screen program guide. Sort through up to 8 days of over-the-air broadcast or cable TV listings using the clever search tools. A colorful on-screen display shows you what's on in a glance and includes TV Guide's brief program descriptions plus channel logos for easy browsing. When you find a show you want to watch or record, just highlight the listing and press a button! The best news is that all of this convenience comes with no monthly fee, and requires no phone line connection!

Make permanent DVD copies of video stored on the hard drive at speeds up to a blazing 64X - that's about 56 seconds for each hour of content! Keeping track of all those programs would be difficult if it weren't for Panasonic's enhanced Direct Navigator. This worthwhile feature displays thumbnail images of every program stored on your discs and hard drive, making it easy to locate a specific movie or show.

The DMR-E500HS adds some great capabilities for digital camera and camcorder owners, too. Front-panel PC card and SD card slots let you view JPEG digital photos and MPEG4 video clips on your TV screen, and easily store them to the hard drive or DVD-RAM discs. It also adds a DV (IEEE 1394) input, which makes it easy to record directly from a digital camcorder. Save shelf space by archiving your precious home movies on DVDs.

If you've got an Ethernet computer network, it's easy to integrate multiple DMR-E500HS decks together into an amazingly flexible multi-room video system. Each deck can stream all video and still images recorded on its hard drive to any other deck in the network. You can even stream MPEG4 videos and JPEG still images from the hard drives of any of your decks to your PC for viewing.
