New DVD camcorders from Hitachi add DVD-R for playback
With DVD now firmly established as a star product in both the consumer electronics
and PC sectors Hitachi is now broadening the appeal of its Emmy-award winning
DVD camcorder concept with the launch of three new models, all of which offer
DVD-R recording compatibility.
DVD-R format discs can be played back in the vast majority of existing home DVD
players so buyers of the new Hitachi models – designated the DZ-MV200E, DZMV230E
and the DZ-MV270E – will no longer have to rely on the camcorder as a
domestic playback device. "Our new DVD camcorders will change the way
consumers record, edit and play back their video recordings," says Hitachi’s Roland

and can be played back in DVD players and DVD-ROM drives.
Now it’s possible to use DVD-RAM as the initial rewritable recording medium in your
Hitachi camcorder, edit your footage in your PC (either using a USB computer
connection plus Hitachi's optional PC editing software, or via a PC DVD-RAM/DVDROM
drive) and then "burn" back onto DVD-R - via the camcorder - for maximum
