Toshiba upscaling DVRs

Toshiba Japan on Thursday introduced three new DVRs with the company's proprietary eXtended Detail Enhancement (XDE) near-HD quality upscaling technology that was first introduced in the XD-E500 DVD player. The newest models to use the technology are headed up by the RD-X8 DVR, which comes with a 1TB hard drive to record TV from its digital TV tuner. In addition, it will burn dual-layer DVDs and supports both MPEG-4 and AVC/H.264 formats. Of the new additions, the RD-X8 alone has Deep Color HDMI outputs.

The 500GB RD-S503 sports a single HDMI output in addition to more digital and analog connections, while the RD-S303 many of the same specs coupled to a smaller 320GB hard disk.

Sold with Vardia branding in Japan, the three DVRs are all capable of upconverting source files stored on SD cards or broadcast content as well. The XDE processor can be switched off, however, to allow viewing source signals in their original resolutions.

All three are scheduled for a mid-November launch in Japan, with the RX-08 priced at an equivalent of about $,1350, the RD-S503 at $970 and the RD-S303 at $760 . [via Impress]
