What Is a DVD Camcorder?
Hitachi has forever changed the direction of camcorder technology with the introduction of the DVD camcorder. This Emmy-winning innovation allows you to record home movies directly to DVD and play them back on your home DVD player.
What is DVD-RAM Recording?
DVD-RAM is a rewritable format that allows for recording and rerecording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times per disc. Data is written in a nonlinear pattern, much like a computer hard disk. When recording, information is only written to blank areas of the disc, eliminating accidental erasure of previously recorded material. The DVD-RAM Disc Navigation system provides in-camera editing, playlist options, and still photo capability.
What is DVD-R Recording?
DVD-R is a record-once format that can be played back on most home DVD players. Data is recorded in a linear manner and users can directly access any previously recorded clip using the on-screen Disc Navigation feature.
What is Disc Navigation?
Direct digital access to DVD footage requires none of the rewinding or fast-forwarding necessary with tape formats. Each movie clip or still photo is presented as a thumbnail on the LCD panel. Simply cursor to the desired clip and select it for instant playback. With DVD-RAM discs, you can perform a host of in-camera editing features including fading, moving, dividing, deleting, and combining clips and you can create up to 99 playlists for custom playback of movie clips.
