JVC's SR-HD2500 combo deck allows users to create standard Blu-Ray high-definition discs or common DVDs from a large variety of high definition content sources without the need to utilize complex software or IT hardware.
Based on the design and technology of the SR-HD1500, the SR-HD2500 makes it possible to record High Definition content to HDD, and create Blu-Ray discs easily and efficiently.
It's the first BD recorder to feature the SDI interface – compatible with all HDV or AVCHD cameras on the market, offering the benefit of easy content distribution for any user who shoots on an HDV or AVCHD camcorder. Further more, the new SR-HD2500 allows direct recording to Blu-Ray disc from the HDSDI Input and the new option of adding a time stamp to your recordings for documented content.
And for the vast majority of clients who still distribute their content in standard definition, the new combo deck provides automatic downscaling of high-definition content allowing the footage to be burned to standard definition DVDs.

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.
Author custom discs for presentations, kiosks and point-of-sale displays
Blu-ray™ or DVD discs can be authored so that they begin playing immediately after being inserted into the player, ideal for presentations. Likewise, the discs can be authored so that the playback repeats continuously, ideal for kiosks and point-of-sale displays.
Compatible with camcorders supporting AVCHD, HDV and DV formats
The SR-HD2500 supports a wide range of AVCHD, HDV, and DV camcorders, including JVC's Everio models. Tape based models can be connected via the i.Link (IEEE-1394) connector for digital transfers to the HDD. Recordings can then be transferred to the optical disc, providing an ideal way to archive material originally recorded on tape. Solid state and HDD camcorders can be connected using either the USB 2.0, HD/SD SDI 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.
Advanced MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 (H.264) Encoding
High definition H.264 recording is supported in the AF (Apx. 12.9Mbps), AN (Apx. 8.6Mbps), AL (Apx. 5.7Mbps) and AE (Apx. 4.3Mbps) modes. MPEG-2 TS recording is provided for HDV and JVC Everio camcorders (up to 28.8Mbps.). For DV and analog recordings, MPEG-2 PS streams are encoded in the XP (Apx. 9.5Mbps), SP (Apx. 4.8Mpbs), LP (Apx. 2.4Mpbs) and EP (Apx. 1.2Mpbs) modes.

The SR-HD2500 stores up to 24 hours of high definition material onto one dual-layer 50GB Blu-ray™ disc when recording in the AE mode (4.3Mbps.)
