BLU-RAY RECORDING A REALITY WITH TASCAM BD-R2000
New Recorder Records to Hard Drive, DVD, Blu Ray
San Francisco, CA – AES Booth 909 (November 5, 2010): TASCAM has introduced the BD-R2000 high-definition video recorder, which captures to internal hard drive, solid-state media, DVD or Blu-ray™ discs. The multi-format recorder can store video on the hard drive, perform simple edits and author a disc menu before burning to standard DVD-Video or Blu-ray format. It supports video input from DV/HDV cameras (4-pin FireWire) and S-Video, or video files stored to USB 2.0 or SD/SDHC card. With support for several video, audio and still image formats, the BD-R2000 is an ideal fit for schools, house of worship, boardroom and other high-end installations.
The disc authoring system of the BD-R2000 improves on the shortcomings of competing disc-recording systems. Disc playback is seamless, avoiding the pause between scenes often encountered on other solutions. Scenes can be trimmed, separated and arranged on a menu before committing to a blank disc. One-touch dubbing allows an entire DVD or Blu-ray disc, USB drive or SD/SDHC card to be stored on the hard drive, then burned to Blu-ray disc at up to 32x speed.
With so many storage formats to choose from, TASCAM’s BD-R2000 is the ultimate video recorder.
