It will write from hard disc to DVD-RAM at 40x and from hard disc to DVD-R at speeds of up to 64x at EP mode. This means that one a one hour recording could be made in approximately 56 minutes.
It features an Ethernet port and a broadband receiver offering convenience for home and mobile networking. With the Ethernet connection MPEG4 video and JPEG photos can be viewed by a PC*1 in another room. Also using two DMR-E500Hs, MPEG-2 recordings on one could be accessed by the other over the LAN. The broadband receiver will allow owners to program recordings using cell phones while they are away from home and can also transfer pictures between the recorder and the cell phone.

With the use of an SD Memory Card, you can transfer digital pictures to the Recorder from other devices such a digital camera. You can then store the data on the HDD or you can burn it to a disc. It can record MPEG4 image data simultaneously while recording MPEG2 data onto the hard disk.
