Panasonic readies Freesat Blu-ray pair

Record the BBC, in HD

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Panasonic this week previewed what it claimed is the world’s first pair of Blu-ray recorders with two integrated Freesat receivers and an internal hard drive.

Because both players each have two tuners, Panasonic has reportedly said you'll be able to record content from one channel and simultaneously watch something else.

Each machine is also Freesat+ compatible, making pause and rewind on-demand possible.

Capacity is where the two machines differ. The DMR-BS750 has a 250GB hard drive, while the DMR-BS850 will boast twice as much capacity. Both have integrated SD memory card slots.

Presumably, both machines will also let you record Freesat-captured content onto a Blu-ray Disc. However, it's expected that Panasonic will confirm this closer the players' official launch - thought to follow in May.

Prices for either machine have yet to be been confirmed. ®
