Panasonic launches PVR with 1TB HDD
July 6th, 2012
With an in-built 1TB of space, the Panasonic DMR-HW220 is capable of recording up to 140 hours of HDTV programmes.
That’s at least 70 2-hour movies, 280 episodes of any half-hour series, 140 one-hour documentaries or a combination of any…the mind boggles. Deciding what programme to record is made easy, too, with twin tuners which allows for the recording of two HD programmaes at the same time.
It’s the first dedicated PVR (personal video recorder) launched by Panasonic Australia and the Pana punters are proud.
Anthony Smyth, product marketing manager, audio, Blu-ray & DVD said: “This is an exciting move for Panasonic into a growing market. Panasonic has held the market leader position in DVD/Blu-ray Recorders for the last 12 months and this new product announcement means Panasonic now offers consumers a full portfolio of recording devices for the home.”
The new DMR-HW220 features Panasonic’s Viera Connect IPTV platform. It connects to popular social networking sites and services including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter; and offers Skype as well as Yahoo!7, Plus7 and ABC iView.
“This PVR model sets the benchmark for easier and convenient recording of content in the home and offers a host of connectivity features including VIERA Connect, built in Wi-Fi and an easy to use interface,” Smyth said.
