Toshiba Launches New HD DVD Recorders in Japan

Toshiba Corporation announced two high-end additions to its VARDIA digital video recorders that support HD DVD capabilities. The new DVR introduce the ability to record two digital HD television programs simultaneously, and also integrate Toshiba's new "VARDIA engine", which offers enhancements to ease of use and performance, including faster drawing of the GUI and improved HD DVD disc operation. The HD DVD VARDIA RD-A600 and HD DVD VARDIA RD-A300 will be rolled out in the Japanese market from the end of June.

The new models offer consumers a choice of hard disk drive capacities: 600GB (RD-A600) and 300GB (RD-A300). Both integrate an HD DVD recordable drive that can directly record HD television programs to an HD DVD-R disc or transfer HD images stored in HDD to an HD DVD-R disc. Like standard DVR, the new recorders allow users to build libraries of their favorite content, whether dramas, movies or sport.

The versatility of the new VARDIA DVR extends to playback support for packaged content, including HD DVD, DVD and music CDs. An integrated 1080p compatible up-scaler from Anchor Bay Technologies can up-convert standard definition DVD to an output resolution of 1080p.

Both DVR are compliant with the EU RoHS directive on environmentally hazardous substances, which came into force in July 2006.
