The Panasonic DMR-ES30VS enables you to easily dub home movies and recorded VHS tapes onto either DVD-RAM or DVD-R discs, and from DVD discs back to a VHS tape. It also plays back music burned to CD-R/RW discs as well as MP3 digital audio. The DVD side of the DMR-ES30VS features progressive-scan video playback and great sound thanks to the Dolby Digital and DTS output.

With Chasing Playback, an element of the Time Slip feature, you can watch a program currently being recorded from any point that's already been recorded-while continuing to record the program in process. Simultaneous Recording and Playback, the second element of the Time Slip feature, lets you record a program onto a disc while you're watching any other program that's previously been recorded on the same disc.

Progressive scan: Simply hook it up to a digital TV to enjoy the smooth clarity of enhanced-definition (480p) images.
