- JVC selects LSI Logic DMN-8652 for its high-quality video and audio, and ability to reduce the time, cost and complexity of system design ( http://www.lsilogic.com/products/recorder_dvd_dvr_dtr/index.html )
"Consumers are attracted to products that allow them to quickly and easily shift from analog video to new digital video formats and applications; the DMN-8652 allows JVC to deliver products like the DR-MX1 that simplify this transition," said Susumu Sakakibara, general manager, AV & Multimedia Company for JVC.
Based on the LSI Logic DoMiNo(TM) architecture, the DMN-8652 processor was selected by JVC for its ability to enable a convergence of consumer digital video applications with highest quality video and audio, while reducing the time, cost and complexity of system design. The DMN-8652 accepts video from TV and other analog video sources and encodes it for storage on hard disk or DVD discs in standard recordable formats including DVD-RAM and DVD-RW/R. It supports simultaneous playback of video from HDD or DVD, and a range of background copying operations between the VCR, hard disk drive, and optical drive.
Leveraging the DMN-8652, JVC was able to pack a number of leading-edge features and capabilities into the DR-MX1, including the following:
-- a 120 gigabyte hard drive for recording up to 224 hours of video; -- an extremely fast dubbing feature enabling consumers to transfer video from HDD to DVD at speeds up to 32x. 1-hour of video can be transferred in under 2 minutes; -- intelligent two-pass MPEG encoding to achieve the highest quality digital video; -- 6-way dubbing between HDD-and-VHS, DVD-and-VHS, and HDD-and-DVD; -- multi-format support; and -- fast 1.5x video playback.
The DMN-8652 integrates a second dedicated ATAPI port, an NTSC/PAL TV encoder, video DACs and a USB controller. It offers key features, such as MPEG-4 video playback; concurrent operation of timeshifting (pause, rewind and fast-forward of live television) while archiving programs from hard disk to DVD. Additional advantages of the DMN-8652 include LSI Logic's proprietary pre- and post-processing technologies, TrueView(TM) Pro and TrueScan(TM) Pro. These unique motion compensation-based technologies provide advanced progressive scan output and impressive noise handling on analog inputs, helping to manufacturers differentiate their products for quality-conscious consumers.
"With the DR-MX1, JVC has introduced an impressive product that provides the consumer with the ultimate in recording flexibility," said Umesh Padval, executive vice president of LSI Logic's Consumer Products. "JVC has a history of designing innovative products that fit the needs of quality-conscious consumers and we're pleased that the DMN-8652 is helping them to achieve that goal."
