Matsushita talks advanced Blu-ray recorders at CEATAC Matsushita Electric Industrial Co Ltd, which produces the Panasonic brand of consumer electronics equipment, has shown off its advanced Blu-ray disc recorders that will store more Full HD programming per disc than any other. Matsushita is an exclusive Blu-ray disc backer, which competes with the rival HD DVD format for dominance in the market for HD home entertainment content.
Matsushita has also revealed that it will sell the first DVD recorders that store Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 resolution) content on conventional DVD discs next month. The new Blu-ray recorders will go on sale on November 1st, advertised as being capable of recording 18 hours of Full HD to a single dual-layer BD disc.

A model we previously reported on that will sport a huge 1TB hard disk drive (HDD) will sell for 300,000 yen ($2,600). The 1TB HDD is advertised as being capable of storing 381 hours of full high definition content. Three new DVD recorder models that will record Full HD to conventional DVD discs will also go on sale on November 1, with the high-end model sporting a 500GB HDD selling for about 130,000 yen.
