Progressive Scan Technology
The DMR-ES18 is a progressive scan DVD player, capable of scanning an entire video frame at once; scan-lines commonly associated with interlaced video are drastically reduced. The result is a spectacularly clear image with no motion artifacts (stair-stepping), and details so sharp they seem as if they're etched onto the screen.
Component Video Output
With playback specifications that meet the standards of professionals, the DMR-ES18 features a component video output for high-resolution low-distortion video playback.
DV (IEEE 1394) Input
Simply connect your digital video camera to the DV input terminal, and you're ready to record images onto a DVD recordable disc.
Recordable DVD Media
Record your favorite TV shows or home movies onto DVD-R/W, DVD+R/W, and DVD-RAM discs. The DMR-ES18 is also compatible with DVD-R DL and DVD+R DL media and provides up to 14 hours of media recording.
Multi-Format Player
Don't worry about limited playback capabilities, the DMR-ES18 can play DVD-Video, DVD-R/W, DVD-R DL, DVD+R/W, DVD+R DL, and DVD-RAM discs. Also, you can play your favorite songs from CDs or MP3 files, and JPEG images.
Dolby Digital and DTS Decoders
This recorder offers built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoders capable of advanced 24-bit processing and an outstanding sampling frequency of 96KHz. Use the coaxial digital audio output to connect the unit to your home theater receiver and enjoy full Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound entertainment.
Home Theater Friendly

DivX Home Theater Certified
DivX is video compression software which enables high quality video to be compressed into very small files then downloaded onto CD-R or CD-RW and played back with very little loss of quality.
Quick Start Recording
Thanks to the high-speed 1-second quick-start function, with DVD-RAM disc, you are ready to record just 1 second after switching on the power. Being able to record almost instantly, means that you will never miss the Monday night kick off!
