Product Information

product description

Blu-ray Disc™ Recorder with HDD (500GB), Twin HD Satellite Tuner, SD Memory Card Slot and USB Terminal

Because the recorder is equipped with two HD digital tuners, two different TV programmes can be recorded simultaneously. There is no need to worry about missing out on recording a programme when two programmes overlap.

In DR mode, the DMR-BS850 can record digital broadcasts in Full-HD picture quality. It can also stream-record and output the 5.1 channel surround sound signals (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus) contained in HD broadcasts. When connected to a 5.1 channel digital amp, the DMR-BS850 lets users enjoy outstanding surround sound while watching a TV program or playing back a recording.

It reproduces films with colours that are exceptionally faithful to the original. The combination of the Blu-ray DiscTM software encoding technology cultivated by the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory (PHL) and the decoding technology accumulated by Panasonic has led to the development of the “PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus," a high quality image technology for faithfully reproducing film content.

DMR-BS850 is compatible with the VIERA CAST function, which allows you to access YouTube™, Picasa™, and other various contents. YouTube™ lets you watch the newest video clips, and Picasa™ lets you view Web-based photos. You can also check weather and stock information on other sites.

Intelligent Auto Standby After watching and listening with the compatible Blu-ray Disc™ recorders, the recorders automatically turn off when you return to the TV using the VIERA remote. * 2009 VIERA TV Standby Power Save Blu-ray Disc™ recorders with Power Save function will turn on/off when TV is turned on/off. * 2009 VIERA TV
