Daewoo's versatile, space-saving DVR-S04 combo recorder lets you quickly and easily transfer your personal video from VHS tapes to recordable DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, preserving your cherished footage for years to come--all with a single component. Setup is simple and connections are minimal; the DVR-S04 is optimized for one-touch transfers from VHS to DVD or vice-versa, copy-protection technology permitting (you can't copy the latest blockbuster movie to videotape).

The unit will also play your CD-based MP3 music files and JPEG digital photos, including Kodak Picture CDs--nothing like a custom slide show in the comfort of your living room. If you've got music and pictures on the same CD-R or CD-RW, you can even select an MP3 music file to play in the background during your slideshow.

In addition to making it easier to transfer directly from videotape to DVD, the DVR-S04 uses LSI Logic's Direct Digital Dub technology. Direct Digital Dub simplifies digital content transfers from a camcorder (DV or other media) to the DVD recorder via an IEEE 1394 (DV) connection. Simplifying the process, Direct Digital Dub lets you control the camcorder with one touch via the DVD recorder's remote control.

Additional advantages include LSI Logic's proprietary pre- and post-processing technologies, TrueView Pro and TrueScan Pro. These motion-compensation-based technologies provide advanced progressive-scan output and impressive noise-minimizing on signals passing through the unit's analog inputs.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

Front-panel inputs make spontaneous connections a cinch, whether you're hooking up a camcorder, a digital camera, or a second VCR. The unit also offers an RF coaxial antenna input and output, 1 each composite-, component-, and S-video outputs, and a choice of 2 digital-audio outputs (coaxial or optical) for passing Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround signals to a compatible audio/video surround receiver and multichannel speaker system, the ideal accessories for your movie viewing.
