NEW YORK, July 18, 2006 Sony Electronics today expanded its DVDirect DVD recorder family
with two new models the video- and digital photo-capable VRD-MC3 and the video-only VRD-VC30
Both sport "computer-free" synchronization with Sonys new Hard Disk
Handycam camcorders, making it easier than ever to preserve and share memories.
The next-generation DVDirect recorders also enable easy, real-time recording of
home video footage, digital still images (VRD-MC3 only) and TV shows from digital video recorders
to DVDs, all without the need for a computer.
The VRD-MC3 and VRD-VC30 recorders allow for quick and effortless high-quality
video transfers from a digital camcorder via a Hi-Speed USB using Handycam cameras or Digital
Video (DV) interfaces.
By connecting to the new Sony DCR-SR80, DCR-SR60, DCR-SR40 camcorders, users can
simply push the "DVD burn" button on the HDD Handycam Station, and the new recorders
will automatically detect the camcorders newest contents and immediately burn them to DVD.
