Edited press release follows:


WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced two new models in its successful line of professional Blu-ray/hard disc drive combo decks. Designed to provide easy duplication and disc authoring without a PC, the SR-HD1350US and SR-HD1700US can create Blu-ray or DVDs directly from live video inputs or from video files stored on built-in hard drives.

With up to 6x dubbing speed with BD-R discs, the SR-HD1350US and SR-HD1700US are the fastest JVC combo decks to date. New features include the ability to pause during direct-to-disc recording, record directly to DVD in DVD-Video format, and create BDMV and BDAV discs from live sources.

Using a simple, menu-driven interface, videos are transferred from a camcorder or other device to the internal hard drive, assembled into a completed project and output to disc. The units support BD-R or BD-RE (erasable) Blu-ray discs, as well as DVD-R (SL/DL) or DVD-RW DVDs. Unprotected DVD and Blu-ray discs can be easily duplicated as well. Authored discs can be produced with auto-start or repeat playback for retail point-of-sale displays and other applications.

Both decks feature a variety of inputs for compatibility with current and legacy equipment, including composite, S-Video and i.Link (IEEE-1394) interfaces, as well as an SD/SDHC media card slot (SDXC memory cards can be read via a USB card reader). HDMI and other outputs provide flexible monitoring options.

The SR-HD1350US includes a 320 GB hard drive, while the SR-HD1700US has a 500 GB hard drive. The SR-HD1700US also offers additional features, including the ability to transfer NLE footage via LAN, compatibility with .MOV or .MXF files up to 35 Mbps created with JVC ProHD camcorders, and external control via LAN or RS-232C.

Both decks are available now. The SR-HD1350US has a suggested list price of $1,595, while the SR-HD1700US has a suggested list price of $2,995.
