With the capability of producing compatible programming coupled with
real time, real simple one-button recording, the PRV-9000 is ideal for
archiving, training materials, video transfers and any application where
the ability to efficiently and easily record to DVD is essential.
Pioneer's PRV-9000 is the only professional DVD recorder that utilizes
the time-tested DVD-R format for write-once recording and DVD-RW for
rewritability. DVD-R discs are the most compatible DVD recording format,
playing in most existing DVD playback devices. DVD-RW discs also offer
compatibility with many existing DVD players and DVD computer drives.
The PRV-9000 offers IEEE 1394/DV Input/Output (i.Link) that allows users
to record digital component video from a DV source. It also offers S-Video,
composite and RF analog video inputs. Pioneer includes a two-year warranty
and a 24-hour technical support/loaner program.
In addition to the professional DVD recorder, Pioneer is introducing
its fourth generation computer drive offering DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R and
CD-RW recording and playback capabilities. When paired with DVD authoring
software, the DVR-A04 computer drive makes it simple to author video
content and record to a DVD.
Pioneer's new portable DVD-Video player the PDV-LC20 is an ideal complement
to Pioneer's PRV-9000 Pro DVD-Video Recorder, as discs created in the
PRV-9000's Video Recording (VR) mode can be played back on the PDV-LC20
Finally, Pioneer's DVD playback tool for high use environments, the
DVD-V7400 industrial DVD-Video player is ideal for use in training facilities,
corporate presentations, education, exhibition halls, broadcast centers,
retail stores and kiosks that require constant operation.
Pioneer's FlexLibrary (DRM-7000) is the most advanced DVD library storage
system available. A new disc-flipping mechanism and double-sided media
increases the maximum storage capacity to six terabytes of information.
When paired with technology like Core Digital's Asset Management, the
FlexLibrary becomes a complete, cost-effective media archive solution
able to digitally create, log, store, index, search and distribute valuable
video and audio assets. It is a tremendous space and cost saver, replacing
large tape libraries.
Pioneer's DRM-1004 network storage solution offers 65GB of total data
storage with less than 3 seconds disc change time. This high-performance,
mid-range network storage solution is ideal for quick, reliable performance
in a high-demand network environment.
