New DVD recorders by Philips

The range – the DVDR70, DVDR75, DVDR77 and DVDR80 separates and the LX9000R system – are all based on the DVD+RW format. As a result, recordings will always keep their original quality, no matter how often they are played, and once recorded, they can be easily shared with family and friends time and time again. Furthermore, the high compatibility of DVD+RW means that recordings can be played back on almost any DVD player or PC with a DVD drive.

The LX9000R is the world’s first integrated home entertainment system that can record and playback DVD. In a stylish and convenient single unit, the LX9000R meets the wish of many consumers for a high-performance, home entertainment system that perfectly matches the design of modern interior decor. All users need to do to enjoy the latest in AV Home Entertainment is connect the LX9000R to their TV set.

In addition to the high quality video, the LX9000R includes a range of innovations to deliver superb sound.

It is an innovative loudspeaker concept with two subwoofers integrated in speaker’s columns.

The LX9000R also includes a Cinema Center Speaker with five multi-directional speaker drives. These speakers are positioned such that the sound comes from the right direction with the right depth. Precisely positioned at different angles, these five speakers provide a “through the screen” sound experience.

Philips’ unique Clear Voiceâ„¢ DSP technology enhances clear movie voice reproduction without compromising sound dynamics. Together with Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG multi-channel decoding and 3D sound, the high-performance speakers ensure accurate, well-defined soundscapes and special effects. The LX9000R’s modern lines, high-quality metal finish and uncluttered front panel will appeal to users who appreciate good looks as well as functionality.

This model allows a full 8 hours of recording time on a single DVD disc with superb picture and sound reproduction that makes it the heart of a high-end home cinema system. On top of that it offers sophisticated imaging functions that let consumers do much more with their digital photos

Easy-to-use digital image-transfer features allow consumers to record all their favorite moments from digital photos or camcorder recordings in durable, high-quality form on DVD discs.

Uniquely, the DVDR77 can convert JPEG pictures from digital photo cameras into DVD-compatible slide shows that can be played on virtually all DVD players and DVD drives in PC thanks to the high compatibility of the DVD+RW technology, so consumers have all the freedom they could wish for in viewing and sharing both their video recordings and digital photo albums. The DVDR77 also has a standard i.LINK interface for high-quality digital camcorder connection, allowing video to be transferred directly onto DVD discs.

The DVDR80 also allows up to 8 hours uninterrupted recording on a single DVD disc.

It includes an i.LINK connection for direct, high-quality transfer of images from consumers’ digital camcorders to DVD discs. The unique Sat Mouse allows the DVD recorder to automatically control a satellite receiver, making unattended recordings easy. All these features and more make the DVDR80 a high-end DVD Recorder that provides a total home cinema experience without the usual complexity.

The new DVDR75 and DVDR70 DVD Recorders offer an affordable and full-featured way for consumers to create their own DVDs.
