JVC SR-HD2500US Blu-ray / Hard Drive Combo Deck allows Direct Recording of Live Signal to Blu-ray disc
JVC today announced the SR-HD2500US, the latest model in its successful line of high performance professional combo decks. With its built-in Blu-ray recorder and 500 GB hard drive, the unit provides easy duplication and disc authoring without a PC. Plus, it features an HD/SD-SDI input, which allows it to connect to most professional video systems and provide direct recording of a live signal to Blu-ray disc. For disc authoring, videos are transferred from a camcorder or other device to the internal hard drive (which stores up to 24 hours of HD footage), then assembled into a completed project and recorded to Blu-ray disc via a simple, menu-driven interface.
The JVC SR-HD2500US features USB and i.Link (IEEE-1394) ports, as well as a SDHC card slot, for compatibility with a wide variety of digital sources. Composite and S-Video inputs are included to provide support for legacy analog devices. There are also HD-SDI, HDMI, and component outputs for flexible monitoring, and a RS-232 port for external control. The SR-HD2500US has a suggested list price of $3,995. JVC will showcase the new combo deck at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C4314), which runs April 16-19 in Las Vegas, Nev.
