The JVC HD Everio HD Hard Disk Camcorder GZ-HD7 can also be connected via a USB 2.0 cable to an optional JVC HD Everio Share Station CU-VD40, which is controlled directly through the camcorder. The Share Station can be used to create HD data discs to archive HD video clip files. The Share Station also plays these HD data discs. There are several options for selecting clips to be burned to disc. The Share Station archives these HD video clip programs and files to both DVD-R and DVD-RW 12cm discs, recording approximately 40 minutes in full HD on an 8.5GB dual-layer DVD-R disc. It also allows for the creation of digital stills in a JPEG format.

Dual-layer DVD-R is also supported, which means that the combination of the HD Everio and the CU-VD40 provides a PC-less solution to the high-capacity archiving needs of HD content. HD Everio SHARE STATION CU-VD40 will be available in April for approximately $399.95.
