<p>Vivitar takes convergence electronics to a new level with the launch of the world’s first 6-in-1 multimedia recorder/player. Due for release in September, the Vivitar DVR 390H offers outstanding versatility combining a MPEG4 video camera, digital still camera, TV/video recorder, digital photo frame, MP3 player and voice recorder in a compact and stylish device.</p>
<p>Unique to Vivitar, the DVR 390H features massive storage capacity with 20 Gigabytes of onboard memory and SD card compatibility. That’s the equivalent built-in memory of many notebooks and PCs. Coupled with a super long-life lithium-ion battery, it can capture an outstanding 15 hours of VGA movies, 24,000 high quality still images and more than 5000 MP3 music files. The mains cradle unit further expands functionality with AV-in and out, USB and microphone connectivity catered for.</p>
<p>Multifunctional recorder
Using the tiny detachable camera/camcorder module (just 40mm wide x 71mm long x 30mm deep), the DVR 390H captures superior MPEG4 video in both VGA and XVGA formats. A 270-degree swivel lens ensures optimum manoeuvrability for capturing those tricky camera angles while the 2x digital zoom enables the user a closer view.</p>
<p>The DVR390H can also record video from virtually any video source including TV, VCR and DVD. Together with its huge storage capacity, users can easily store movies, videos or TV programs and view them when convenient.</p>
<p>The combined digital still camera features 3.1-Megapixels and produces high resolution images. It also offers a macro lens of 0.7m to 1.4m. User friendly features include variable quality settings, a self-timer with 10-second delay, built-in flash with red eye reduction and optional date stamping.
The DVR 390H also functions as a voice recorder. Using the microphone input connection it records high quality sound clips and is ideal for recording lecture notes or interviews.</p>
<p>The ultimate player
Delivering brilliant LCD playback review is the huge 3.6 inch LPTS TFT LCD screen. With five levels of brightness control the DVR 390H provides excellent viewing clarity in full colour. It is also large enough to play stored movies and videos when on the go, making the DVR 390H a great entertainment solution for road trips.</p>
<p>The large screen enables the DVR 390H to function as a digital photo frame. Simply sit the device in its cradle for continuous AC power and select the slide show format to electronically present those favourite snaps.</p>
<p>In addition, the DVR 390H stores and plays MP3 music files through its built-in speaker or included headphones, with volume adjustable to five different levels. All of this in a compact device that measures just 106mm wide x 71mm long x 32mm deep.</p>
<p>Brilliant functionality
The DVR 390H offers superb functionality and is compatible with PCs and MACs. Using the cradle it can connect to a range of other peripherals including TV, PC, notebook or printer. Even its 20GB hard drive can be used to store unrelated data and computer files.</p>
<p>The Vivitar DVR 390H offers excellent value for money including a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, charger and AC adapter and comes with a complete software package that includes Photo Suite, WIN DVD Creator and Muvee Auto Producer.</p>
