Pioneer Announces PRV-9200 Professional DVD Recorder

"Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. announced today the availability of
the PRV-9200 professional DVD recorder. Boasting a 160-gigabyte
built-in hard disk drive (HDD) and 48X high-speed copying, the
PRV-9200 offers speedy, simplified and convenient creation of
compliant DVD-Video discs without the need for a computer or authoring
software. This professional DVD recorder is available for recording
and playback in NTSC and PAL standards for a manufacturer’s suggested
retail price of $1,025.

“When archiving video content to DVD, the PRV-9200 can quickly copy
files directly from the hard drive without any loss of video quality,
drastically reducing recording times, saving valuable time and money,”
said Linda Toleno, vice president for Industrial Video and Mass
Storage at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Unique features such as
high-speed copying, combined with ease-of-use and the targeted price
point of the PRV-9200 make it a natural extension of Pioneer’s
powerful line of professional DVD Recorders,” she added.

In addition to drastically reducing copy times, DVD-R/DVD-RW discs
recorded on the PRV-9200 are highly compatible and can be played back
in most DVD players including industrial players, consumer players,
in-car systems, portable DVD players, as well as computers.

For added flexibility, the recorder allows high-speed copying of
content from a DVD-RW disc recorded in Video mode to be directly
recorded back onto the internal HDD, allowing users to re-purpose
content, making edits or changes before recording it to a new
DVD-R/DVD-RW disc. Users also can re-encode original HDD recording
while making a copy simultaneously to a DVD disc in real time.

Additional product highlights include:

Extended Recording Times – four optional recording levels offering
varying picture quality (Extended Play, Long Play, Standard Play or
FINE mode, allowing up to six hours on one DVD-R/DVD-RW media in the
extended play mode);
Convenient Copy Modes – including one-touch copy, copy list
management, disc backup and simultaneous high-speed copying and

Exclusive Disc Backup and Bit-for-Bit Recording – using the HDD,
identical discs can be copied at high speeds without the need to
recompress the video to another format;

Chase Play – allows users to simultaneously watch, stop or pause the
content while recording;

Smart Variable Bit Rate Recording (VBR) – lets the user choose or
automatically sets the best possible recording quality level suiting
the content and project;

Advanced Disc Navigator – user-friendly menu system for all key
functions and options;

Full Motion Thumbnails with Sound – for simplified previewing,
locating and editing material;

Built-in Tuner – combined with Pioneer’s timer record, allows added
flexibility for recording sources and automation;
Sophisticated Video Playback – featuring PureCinema 2:3 Progressive
Scan for more film-like presentation, a full set of connections
including component video output for higher quality signal, and a JPEG
photo viewer compatible with Fuji and Kodak discs and CD-R/RW discs
burned from a PC;

Superior Audio – built-in Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround Sound
outputs and AV D/A converters;

IEEE-1394/DV Input/Output (i.LINK) – allowing users to record digital
component video content from a DV source such as a DV camera, tape
deck or DV output from a computer;

Three-pin AC Power Cable – for simplified connection and use with
relevant vertical market components;

NTSC, PAL/SECAM TV Format Support

“From basic editing and compliant DVD-Video copying to more integrated
vertical market applications, the PRV-9200 provides an ideal range of
features, reliability and convenience unmatched in the marketplace,”
said Toleno."

"Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
-- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
