Dual "flip" remote, up to two TB internal storage
Mitsubishi unveiled three new REAL Blu-ray recorders on its Japanese website, the DVR-BZ450, DVR-BZ350 and DVR-BZ250. All three have 3D Blu-ray, BDXL and VoD support, AVCREC, and two digital TV tuners. The difference between the three models is the amount of internal storage. The BZ-450 has two terabytes of internal storage, while the BZ-350 has 1TB and the BZ-250 has 500GB.
The devices also feature a unique two-sided "flip" remote, which can control both the DVR and television. The remote uses a motion detector to determine which device is active.
So far, the recorders are only featured on Mitsubishi's Japanese site, which indicates they will be available beginning May 31. The company has not announced pricing or when the DVRs will be available in other markets.
