Sony acTVila BD recorders

Sony Japan has recently announced the upcoming release of a pair of Blu-ray Disc recorders, the 500GB BDZ-A950 and 320GB BDZ-A750. Both support the acTVila video delivery service for digital TVs in Japan, and have the ability to export recorded or downloaded content onto Sony's portable multimedia devices, including the PSP gaming console and Walkman devices. As well, Sony says content recorded from analog broadcasts or other that does not contain copy protection signals can be sent to cellphones.

The Internet-based acTVila service offers a Video Download service that lets users buy and keep recordings, the acTVila Video Full video streaming service for real-time viewing and acTVila Video Download Rental that lets users watch content for a limited time.

Two built-in terrestrial digital and analog tuners, BS digital and 110 CS, respectively, allow users to record one program while watching another and provide them with a number of recording options.

A built-in program guide allows searching for programs by entering keywords such as actor names or performers. Ethernet lets users access the content on the drives from other rooms via a compatible PC or TV that is compatible with the Sony Room Link. BRAVIA Link support means one remote can control both the Sony TV and the Blu-ray recorder.

The pair of BDZ-series recorders will launch in Japan on April 24th, with unofficial prices set at the equivalent of about $1,757 for the 500GB model and $1,450 for the 320GB model. [via em>Tech-On]
