Pioneer Expands Leading Line Of Professional DVD Recorders

PRV-9200 Offers Speed & Simplicity For Wide Range of Applications

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:

“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.
