Hitachi DVD camcorders focus on portability and performance
The Home Electronics Division of Hitachi America, Ltd., a
subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., introduced two new DVD
camcorder models today at the 2003 Consumer Electronics Show. The new models, the UltraVision
Digital® DZ-MV350A and DZ-MV380A, reduce the camcorders chassis by roughly half the size of
previous models. Both models also include high-speed USB2.0 interface for fast uploading and
downloading of information to and from a PC and a flash memory card slot for still images.
"Hitachi's new DVD camcorder models maintain the 2002 break-through design for recording
DVD-R and DVD RAM while making it more convenient to carry and easier to record,” said Leo
Delaney, vice president of marketing for Hitachi America, Ltd., Home Electronics Division. With DVDR
format discs compatible with most DVD players on the market, consumers can make a recording and
simply drop the disc into a DVD player to watch their home movies instantaneously.”
Along with the camcorder’s slim, sleek design, consumers will find easier operation with a new color
viewfinder and high resolution 120k pixel 2.5” LCD screen. The new LCD has almost twice as many
pixels as last year’s model making it easier to view in even bright conditions.
Additionally, the camcorder’s intuitive disc navigation system provides random access to clips
without the danger of accidentally erasing information. Thumbnail images guide the user through each
clip segment without the need to fast forward or rewind -- simply select the thumbnail representing the
beginning of the desired scene and play.
