The CES Report - Video Recording Trends

By Joe Paone
The prevailing opinion at CES was that, for the most part, demand for DVD recorders in the United States is being driven by camcorder users — those who want to upload and archive digital camcorder content on DVD discs, as well as convert old VHS tapes to more future-proof DVDs. Meanwhile, PVRs, such as TiVo, ReplayTV and the emerging category of hard disk drive (HDD)-based recording systems, were positioned as the TV recording vehicles of choice.
