Record and author compliant, professional Blu-ray™ discs without a PC with this all-in-one combo deck. HD recordings from a camcorder can be easily transferred to a high definition disc, or down-converted and recorded onto a standard DVD. Copying unprotected DVD and Blu-ray™ discs is a simple process with a built-in duplication function. USB 2.0 and i.Link connectors, combined with an SD/SDHC memory card slot provide an interface to most SD and HD digital camcorders.
This is a 500GB HDD model. If you don't need the RS-232 D-sub 9-pin remote connection, and HM Series SP mode .MOV file read capability; the 250GB HDD model SR-HD1250
might be a better solution for you.
Professional Blu-ray™ authoring
No PC required! Now you can make professionally authored Blu-ray™ discs from videos created with a high definition camcorder. Record onto single or dual layer BD-R blank discs, or onto erasable BD-RE discs. For expanded versatility, make downconverted SD recordings onto standard DVD discs. The SR-HD1500 makes both BDMV (with menus) and BDAV (no menu) discs. A simple menu driven user interface makes it possible for even novice users to achieve professional quality results.
Built-in editing and duplication* functions with 500GB hard disk drive
The internal hard disk drive makes it possible to edit videos transferred from a camcorder or other device. Edited clips can then be assembled into a completed disc project and then recorded onto one or more Blu-ray™ discs. The internal drive also makes it possible to duplicate* Blu-ray™ or DVD discs. Simply insert the original disc into the drive, then specify how many copies to make. The disc contents are temporarily stored to the hard disk, and then burned to the blank discs.
*Unprotected discs only. It is not possible to copy commercial BD/DVD titles.
Compatible with camcorders supporting AVCHD, HDV and DV formats
The SR-HD1500US supports a wide range of AVCHD, HDV, and DV camcorders. Tape based models can be connected via. the i.Link (IEEE-1394) connector for digital transfers to the HDD.

Solid state and HDD camcorders can be connected using either the USB 2.0, or i.Link depending on which interface is available. An SD/SDHC memory card slot is provided for cameras that record to solid state media.
