    Built-in editing and duplication* functions with 500GB hard disk drive

Edited clips can then be assembled into a completed disc project and then recorded onto one or more Blu-ray™ discs. The internal drive also makes it possible to duplicate* Blu-ray™ or DVD discs. Simply insert the original disc into the drive, then specify how many copies to make. The disc contents are temporarily stored to the hard disk, and then burned to the blank discs.
    *Unprotected discs only. It is not possible to copy commercial BD/DVD titles.

    Author custom discs for presentations, kiosks and point-of-sale displays
    Blu-ray™ or DVD discs can be authored so that they begin playing immediately after being inserted into the player, ideal for presentations. Likewise, the discs can be authored so that the playback repeats continuously, ideal for kiosks and point-of-sale displays.

    Compatible with camcorders supporting AVCHD, HDV and DV formats
    The SR-HD1500US supports a wide range of AVCHD, HDV, and DV camcorders, including JVC's Everio models. Tape based models can be connected via. the i.Link (IEEE-1394) connector for digital transfers to the HDD. Recordings can then be transferred to the optical disc, providing an ideal way to archive material originally recorded on tape. Solid state and HDD camcorders can be connected using either the USB 2.0, or i.Link depending on which interface is available. An SD/SDHC memory card slot is provided for cameras that record to solid state media.
