With the flexibility to record Freeview TV onto DVD or its HDD hard drive, the Panasonic DMREX97 is a versatile recorder.
Universal DVD recorder
The Panasonic DMREX97 is a flexible DVD recorder that not only plays back a huge variety of discs but also records on all the DVD formats. The recorder is compatible with both single and dual layer (DL) DVD-R and DVD+R formats. It will also record on the re-recordable DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs or even using the rare DVD-RAM system.
HDD hard drive back-up
Backing up the universal disc recording ability is the built-in 500GB hard drive. Using the extended recording EP mode, this allows for up to 860 hours of recording - enough to cover months away from home! Even using the highest quality HG mode, the Panasonic manages an impressive 78 hours of recording.
Twin tuners for ultimate versatility
Twin tuners give the Panasonic DMR-EX97 fantastic versatility. With both tuners compatible with Freeview, you can record two HD programmes simultaneously. This means there's no need to worry about two programmes overlapping. Alternatively, you can watch one programme whilst recording another - even if you're watching on a monitor or projector without its own built-in TV tuner.
TV Series Recording function
Use the TV Series Recording function to automatically record a TV series each time it's broadcast. This takes the hassle out of recording individual episodes and, unlike catch-up TV sites, you can watch the programme again at any time and not just within 30 days.
Quick, easy operation
Panasonic has focused on the user experience of DVDRs to make the DMR-EX97 a far more pleasant recorder to use. With 'Triple 1-Sec Easy Operation', the tray draw, Electronic Programme Guide and Video Menu all operate within an instant.
Whether it's to archive your recording collection or just to record day-to-day TV, the Panasonic DMREX97 delivers the highest quality.
