The Panasonic unit features twin tuners to allow you to record different programs simultaneously on DVD and VHS. The quick-start feature allows you to begin recording to DVD-RAM within one second of turning the unit on.
Panasonic boasts improved picture quality with special circuitry to improve picture stability and reduce picture noise when dubbing from VHS to DVD. The unit also features improved picture quality in LP (four hour) recording mode capturing 500 lines of video rather than 250 lines of VHS-quality video that most other units offer. Simultaneous record and playback is possible when recording to DVD-RAM disks, providing full timeslip capability.
