Toshiba's Vardia RD-RX7 HD DVD recorder burns HD video to DVD, too


Quote:
We'd like to thank Toshiba for going the extra mile on this one to confuse consumers ever so slightly more. The company behind the HD DVD format is apparently working on a new flagship Vardia DVD / HD DVD recorder (with hard drive) tentatively dubbed the RD-RX7, which is also capable of recording HD video to, wait for it, non-HD DVD DVDs (aka regular DVDs, like the kind your mom finally just got last month). Apparently Toshiba can even fit about 2 hours of HD video onto old school DVD media with "HD Rec technology", which ain't too bad compared to the 6 hours of HD video it gets on an HD DVD. It actually kind of leaves us wondering why the hell they're insisting we upgrade to HD DVD, dunnit? Oh, and the thing also supports HDMI out with 1080p/24, not unlike the other HD DVD recorder being shown off today (about which we've little info), the RD-A201. Enjoy.

Default HD DV Recording

THe photo and video editing software "Studio" Version 11 also allows making HD DVD's with standard DVD's with your ordinary DVD burner. But it an only holds 30 minutes worth. So you can transfer a high def camcorder video to DVD and see it in high def on an HD DVD player.
