PC-less Archiving using Exclusive DVD Burners
By connecting HD Everio directly to an optional CU-VD50 or CU-VD3 SHARE STATION, you can burn AVCHD discs from all three models, or MPEG-2 data discs from the GZ-HD40/HD30 to make backups and permanent archives of selected scenes in any desired order with just a few simple steps.
AVCHD & MPEG-2 Dual Format Capability
In addition to AVCHD and MPEG-2 archiving, CU-VD50 also offers direct playback of both types of HD content to a connected TV. Both AVCHD DVDs and MPEG-2 data discs can be burned on readily available affordable blank DVD media. With the AVCHD DVDs you make, you can enjoy the added benefit of playback on any AVCHD-compatible Blu-ray player, complete with thumbnail display for easy content selection.
Direct HD Archiving
Just connect to the CU-VD50/VD3 via USB2.0 and you can archive your HD video files on DVD discs without using a PC. Thanks to HD Everio’s USB host function, simply follow the instructions on HD Everio’s LCD and you’re done.
Direct HD Playback
Simply load a created disc and you can enjoy powerful HD video on HDTV. No PC required.
Useful Functions for Archiving and Viewing
Intelligent Grouping Function
The more you record, the more critical “search“ functions become. In addition to the usual file listings and date search, HD Everio also offers the world’s first Intelligent Grouping function. This groups similar scenes together based on the time of recording, interval between recordings and duration of recording, providing faster and easier access to desired scenes.
Digest Playback (for AVCHD DVD)
Digest Playback is possible with AVCHD DVDs created using HD Everio and CU-VD50/VD3. This function automatically selects highlight scenes from among the recorded content using our proprietary algorithm and plays back what looks like a “coming attractions“ trailer for a movie. 60 minutes of footage is condensed into 5 minutes of highlight scenes. Now you can quickly get an idea what’s on the disc.
With the Playlist function, you can select the scenes you want in the order you want internally at the camera. Programme your favourite scenes, in the order you like for playback or for archiving to DVD.
