The Hitachi Corporation is to introduce a camcorder next year which uses DVD Ram rather than videotape, according to reports on Japanese wires. That is a first for DVD memories applied to audio-visual equipment. Hitachi, which has been at the forefront of DVD, said that the RAM version will hold up to an hour of images on both sides of the platter. The move suggests that its deadly rival Sony may be positioning its mini-disk format as a method for recording images too. If the companies' R&D labs are capable of doing so, that could lead to digital cameras, which have yet to take off in the market, using DVD too. Sony has not yet finally committed itself to the DVD format, following a spat between all players in the market over the last two years. ®
