Easy, Convenient Recording and Copying
With its built-in DVB-T receiver for digital terrestrial TV combined with its recording capabilities, Verbatim’s MediaStation can record directly from your TV, DVD or VHS player. Its 1 TB of storage space provides room for up to 500 hours of recordings, 1,420 videos, 330,000 music tracks or 1,000,000 photos. It can also record directly to and from a memory card (SD™, SHDC™ and Memory Stick™), USB drive or external hard disk drive.
Recordings can be programmed via the electronic programme guide (EPG), and favourite TV programmes can be paused and rewound using its time-shift functionality. The “One Touch” buttons on the front of the drive make it very quick and easy to record programmes and to copy photos to the MediaStation’s hard drive.
High Definition Playback
The MediaStation HD DVR plays stored content on the TV in high definition (1,080i resolution) and can show HD JPEG photos and up-scale standard definition movies to 1080i.
Access and play all media content from your home network
The device supports WLAN, which means it can be linked with ease to the user’s home network. This makes it the ideal partner to a NAS drive, on which all multimedia content can be stored.
The MediaStation HD DVR includes “Nero Move It Essentials” software, which enables files to be converted automatically and transferred from one device to another for immediate playback.
