From Panasonic’s press release:
Panasonic’s line of DIGA DVD Recorders, and can also be found on the DMR-E85H and the DMR-E65S.
The DMR-E95H also features a new Direct Navigator, an on screen guide that presents content stored on a disc in easy-to-review thumbnails. Pressing the Direct Navigator button will bring up the thumbnails of all the programs on a disc for easy play selection.
The DMR-E95H also carries over some of the best PVR features of the DIGA line. Time Slip, Chasing Playback and Simultaneous Record & Play are features available when using either the DMR-E95H’s 160GB hard disk drive or a DVD-RAM disc.
The 160GB hard drive is the largest yet in a Panasonic DVD recorder, providing up to 36 hours of recording time in â€œXP,â€ the highest quality-recording mode, or up to 284 hours in â€œEP,â€ or extra-long recording mode. This flexibility makes saving favorite TV programs easy for users. Also, a 4.7GB DVD-RAM or DVD-R disc can hold up to 1 hour in XP mode or 8 hours in EP, and a 9.4GB double-sided DVD-RAM disc can hold up to 2 hours in XP and up to 16 hours in EP mode. All DIGA DVD recorders support recordable DVD-RAM and DVD-R1, and will also play back DVD-Video, music CDs, video CDs and CD-R/CD-RW 2, and MP3 formatted discs. The DMR-E95H also will play back DVD-Audio discs in 2-channels.
â€œPanasonic was the first company to manufacture and bring to market a set-top DVD recorder and we are constantly striving to improve the quality and ease of use of our product,â€ said Alberto Reggiani, Panasonic’s national marketing manager for DVD. â€œBy incorporating such progressive features as the TV Guide On Screen Electronic Program Guide, SD and PCMCIA memory card slots, a DV input and a large capacity 160 GB hard disc drive we are particularly confident that the DMR-E95H will meet the needs of today’s consumer and help maintain our innovative position in the market.â€
The DMR-E95H can do more than play back video. Taking an SD memory card from a digital still camera and inserting into the SD card slot on the front of the unit makes showing JPEG files easy. The PCMCIA card slot allows the consumer to use a variety of memory card formats. Accessibility is one of the unit’s best features.
One touch of a button is all it takes to record data from the DMR-E95H’s hard disk drive to a DVD-RAM or DVD-R disc at high speeds3. Recording goes at a quick 12x normal speed to a DVD-RAM disc or 24x normal speed to DVD-R4 (both in EP mode). For example, a one-hour program can be recorded to DVD-RAM in just 5 minutes or to DVD-R in just 2.5 minutes.
