Counting on JVC’s technical expertise in the D-VHS system arena and Sony’s IEEE-1394 interface know how, the two consumer giants plan to capitalize on the project which will allow the D-VHS video device to connect directly to a set-top box to receive satellite broadcasts or digital terrestrial broadcasts. This promises to provide broad capabilities in recording, playback and transferring of digital video.
