New JVC SR-HD2700 Blu-ray recorder
JVC has announced the SR-HD2700, its most advanced professional
Blu-ray/hard disc drive combo deck, with the ability to record a live HDMI signal from a video camera or DSLR without HDCP encryption. Also new for the SR-HD2700 is the ability to record to the upgraded 1TB internal hard drive and an optical disc simultaneously, which provides redundancy and eliminates the need to copy video files to another disc after recording.
Designed to provide easy duplication and disc authoring of Blu-ray or DVD discs without a PC, the SR-HD2700 adds four recording formats for expanded compatibility with Blu-ray and DVD playback. A simple, menu-driven interface allows users to transfer video files to the internal hard drive, then assemble files into a completed project and output to disc. New upgrades include continuous long-time recording and the ability to upload MOV and MXF files from a PC.
With its HDMI and SDI inputs, the SR-HD2700 is compatible with most HD cameras, recorders and production switchers. The SR-HD2700 features USB and i.Link (IEEE-1394) ports, SDXC card slot, and composite and S-Video inputs for compatibility with a variety of digital and legacy analogue sources.
To avoid copyright and illegal distribution issues, the SR-HD2700 can overlay text during recording. Plus, it can down-convert HD footage to SD to increase workflow efficiencies and discourage unauthorised distribution. Operators can also use SDI embedded time code or the built-in time stamp generated with the SR-HD2700’s internal clock to produce on-screen time and date information for law enforcement and research applications.
“The SR-HD2700 is more than just an efficient duplication tool. It’s also a convenient way to provide client copies on location immediately after an event,” explained Gustav Emrich, Product Manager, European Professional Business. “Plus, the ability to record from an HDMI or SDI input helps make the SR-HD2700 part of a high-quality, low-cost HD recording system for medical applications, OB trucks, sports events, lectures, video conferences, city council meetings, church services and more.”
