DVD recorder: go !" announces as they talk about the release on the market of Philips’ DVDR 1000 before the end of August. Of course, the DVD recorder in living-rooms, able to record TV programs, aims at replacing the VHS VCR. But for the moment, this new toy is expensive (2.200 euros, that is to say near 14.400 francs with the recordable DVD for 130 francs for 4 hours to record). Then, as it is explained by the online magazine, the standards battle is only at the beginning.Philips’ DVDR 1000, DVD+RW format, is in competition with the DVD-RAM that is already marketed in Japan by Toshiba and Panasonic or Pioneer’s DVD-RW which is a part of some PCs or iMacs. Those three formats are totally incompatible between each others. We really wish there would have been an UnPlugFest in order to test interoperability between systems, as it is done at the moment by the ETSI (the European Telecommunications Standards Institute) of Sophia with Bluetooth at Nice.
