Why should I record my memories on a Hitachi DVD Camcorder?
The picture and sound quality of footage stored on a DVD does not degrade over time. Home
movies can be shared with friends and family decades into the future in perfect and pristine
Motion video stored on a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc can be played back on most DVD players
and compatible PC DVD drives. After finalizing the DVD-R disc in the camcorder, it can be
placed directly into your home DVD player and played back. No additional adapters are
necessary and you do not have to connect the camcorder to the television.
With DVD, you can instantly access desired scenes without having to endure the time consuming
task of fast-forwarding or rewinding. Through Hitachi’s Disc Navigation feature, you simply
select the thumbnail image of your favorite scene and it begins to play immediately.
2005 Hitachi DVD Camcorders support four different types of recording media. For motion video
you have the option of using a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc or a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-RAM disc.
Digital still photos can be stored on DVD-RAM discs, Secure Digital cards or MultiMedia Cards.
Hitachi introduced the world’s first DVD based camcorder three years ago. Since then, Hitachi
engineers have been able to perfect the technology and to reduce the physical mass of the
camcorder by 45% making it the most portable DVD camcorder in the industry.
