Sony VBD-MA1 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony DVDirect MA1 Multi-Function Blu-ray Disc/DVD Recorder affords a quick and easy way to transfer your home movies, VHS and digital photos to stunning Blu-ray Disc or DVD. It does this without the need for a PC. The 2.7" color LCD screen lets you preview video or up to six photos at a time. If you record high-definition AVCHD 1080i video from your Sony camera or camcorder, you can quickly transfer it to Blu-ray Disc. There's also an integrated Memory Stick PRO / PRO Duo card slot, as well as an SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot. The VBD-MA1 is even equipped with high-speed USB 2.0 ports for transferring data from your Sony video/digital camera to Blu-ray Disc or DVD. If you have a computer for editing, the DVDirect can function as an external PC burner by recording your edited movies from your computer onto either Blu-ray Disc or DVD. Essentially, the DVDirect MA1 allows you to preserve your memories from virtually any camera, VHS tape or camcorder - although Sony cameras are recommended. Plus, you can also catalog your home movies and digital stills with theatrical titles, disc menus and even movie chapters - so when family and friends stop by asking to see that one hilarious moment or that fully edited home movie, all you'll have to do is load your pre-made Blu-ray Disc or DVD.

Versatile Video Recording via Analog or Digital
Record from almost any camcorder, VCR, or digital video recorder without a PC. Copy your precious moments to Blu-ray Disc media or DVD for archiving or for sharing with family and friends. Use USB and i.LINK for Sony devices, or load memory cards directly into the unit. There's also a composite video and stereo RCA audio inputs to handle a wide range of non-Sony cameras, VHS tapes via VCR, and many other sources 1
Record AVCHD 1080i Video (Sony Only)
Use the VBD-MA1's digital inputs to transfer high-definition AVCHD 1080i video from your Sony camcorder or camera to Blu-ray Disc or DVD. For digital inputs, the burner features an iLink connection port and dual USB ports that are compatible with your Sony video/digital cameras only (AVCHD transfer for Sony Memory Card & Hard Drive Camcorders/Cameras only). However, you can also connect your computer via USB and iLink to the VBD-MA1 for external BD writing 2
