Today Sony debuted its next-generation multi-function DVDirect DVD recorder VRD-MC6 , which can transfer both high-definition and standard-definition home videos and digital photos to DVD discs without using a computer.
It looks like the Sony DVDirect device has enough users out there that it makes sense for Sony to update the line with a new version.

The new VRD-MC6 model has a 2.7-inch color LCD screen for previewing video or up to six digital photos at a time, and its overall size is almost 60% smaller than its predecessor.
The VRD-MC6 can transfer AVCHD quality videos to DVD discs in their native 1080i HD resolution when connected directly to a Sony hard drive or Memory Stick® media-based Handycam camcorder. AVCHD quality DVDs can be played back on compatible Blu-ray Disc devices, including players and computer drives, as well as PlayStation 3 (The VRD-MC6 can transfer AVCHD quality videos to DVD discs in their native 1080i HD resolution when connected directly to a Sony hard drive or Memory Stick media-based Handycam camcorder. AVCHD quality DVDs can be played back on compatible Blu-ray Disc devices, including players and computer drives, as well as PS3 computer entertainment systems.

It can also transfer standard-definition home videos to DVD discs without the need of a computer from virtually any camcorder, VCR or digital video recorder. The new model includes Digital Video (i.LINK/FireWire/IEEE-1394), Composite Video inputs, and USB (for Sony hard drive, DVD and Memory Stick media-based Handycam camcorders). DVD video discs recorded in this manner are playable in most consumer DVD players. In addition, the VRD-MC6 can directly record digital photos to a DVD as a slideshow or just for photo storage from any of the four popular digital camera memory cards. It supports slots for Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo and Memory Stick Pro Duo media, Secure Digital (SD/SDHC) and xD-picture card™ media, or via USB from Sony hard drive, DVD and Memory Stick media based Handycam camcorders and Sony PS3.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
