Sony DVDirect VCD-MC6 lets you record HD video without a PC

sonyMC6dvdirect.jpgThis September Sony's DVDirect VRD-MC6 will be released, an upgrade from the previous VRD-MC5, that will allow users to record high-def and standard-def videos, as well as digital photos from cameras directly onto DVD. The device means that users can do this all without a PC connection.

In terms of form factor, the VRD-MC6 is roughly 60% smaller than the MC5, but has a 2.7-inch display as opposed to the old 2.5-inch version. The display can be used to preview videos and up to 6 JPEG files at a time. Carrying on with JPEG files, those stored on Memory Sticks, SDHC, xD, USB drives, Sony camcorders and digital photos, can all be written to DVD with the MC6 regularly or in slideshow format. Photos can also be used to create menu screens for video discs or users can choose from four preset backgrounds.

Sony Handycam camcorders with built-in hard drives or Memory Sticks can also transfer 1080i video to DVD or alternatively in AVCHD format. This allows users to playback video on Blu-ray players or Playstation 3 game consoles. Standard-def video can be recorded from other camcorders, DVRs and even VCRs via FireWire, composite and USB connections. The unit also maintains Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and aspect ratios.

Keep your eyes open at the end of summer for the DVDirect VRD-MC6 when it ships for $229.
