DVDirect VRD-VC30
Standalone DVD video recorders for the less technically inclined

Sony has released two new DVDirect standalone video recorders—the VRD-VC30 and VRD-MC3. The new DVDirect standalone video recorders can record video from a variety of video sources including Composite, S-Video, Firewire and USB to DVD-R and DVD+R discs. Supported Firewire devices include camcorders and digital video recorders for those home videos and freeing up space on the DVR. When recording from Firewire sources 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios are preserved. Dolby Digital 5.1 audio sources are preserved too.

While both the VRD-VC30 and VRD-MC3 have the same video recording capabilities, the VRD-MC3 has image recording capabilities. Images can be transferred to a DVD disc for photo storage or a DVD slideshow. Users can transfer images via the integrated memory card reader or via the PictBridge compatible USB port. Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, Compact Flash, Secure Digital and xD memory cards are supported with the VRD-MC3. Sony has also equipped the VRD-MC3 with a 2.5” color LCD display for previewing videos and photos.

Both new DVDirect models can be connected to a PC via USB 2.0 and used as a regular DVD burner. Sony bundles the Nero Essentials software suit for PC usage. When connected to a PC the VRD-VC30 and VRD-MC3 can burn DVD-R, DVD+R and dual-layer formats at 8x.

Pricing for the video only VRD-VC30 will be $200 while the video and image capable VRD-MC3 be $250. Availability is expected in October.
