MILPITAS, Calif., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI), a leader in innovative digital media processing technologies for the Digital Home, today announced that JVC (Victor Company of Japan, Limited) has selected the LSI Logic DiMeNsion(TM) 8652 (DMN-8652) DVD recorder system processor for use in the unique JVC "3-in-1" DR-MX1 digital video recorder. By tapping the diverse features integrated into the single-chip DMN-8652, JVC's DR-MX1 integrates the capabilities of a DVD recorder, VCR, and hard disk drive (HDD) recorder into a single, high-performance, full-featured product.

"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."
