Smart Network 3D Blu-ray Disc/DVD Recorder
This smart Blu-ray Disc/DVD recorder and player features 4K networking with native 4K images from a digital camera or camcorder, plus remote streaming via TV Anytime, internet apps and a Twin HD Tuner.
It also offers five times more HD recording with a 1TB HDD and 684 hours (HM Mode) HD recording. There's even a mode that automatically records your favourite content.
Twin HD Tuner with Large-Capacity HDD
You won't believe how much content you can record and store! A Twin HD Tuner lets you record two different programs broadcasting at the same time, and the built-in, large-capacity 1 terabyte Hard Disc Drive (HDD) records five times more content that the ordinary DR (Direct Record) mode. There's enough space here to cover even the longest vacation or binge-watching marathon.
4K Direction Chroma Upscaling
You'll love the enhanced picture quality created by our unique 4K Direct Chroma Upscaling technology. By upscaling Full-HD chrominance and luminance signals directly into 4K signals, this technology achieves higher-precision image processing. It all translates into 4K images with natural textures and incredible depth.
TV Series/Keyword Recording
By registering TV programs, such as cooking programs, with the Series Recording function or a Keyword like "Soccer"with the Keyword Recording function, they can be automatically recorded and stored each time they are broadcast. This eliminates the possibility of forgetting to record each program, and lets you watch the programs at any preferred time.
Using the TV Anytime function on a Panasonic VIERA or recorder lets you watch live or recorded TV programmes on your smartphone or tablet while you’re away from home. In addition to watching, you can also set timer recordings for TV programmes from outside the house. Simply install the Panasonic Media Center App in your smartphone or tablet for convenient, easy operation of the TV Anytime function, and watch the content you want anywhere you please -- indoors or out.
You can access various content and services through the internet and home networks. With Panasonic's 2016 Blu-ray Players you can enjoy various contents, including movies, news, games, music and more.
