Neuros Technology International LLC has announced their
Neuros MPEG-4 Recorder 2, a device that records video straight to memory cards for Sony’s PlayStation Portable (PSP), without requiring a Mac or PC to transfer first. The Neuros MPEG-4 Recorder 2 is shipping now and costs US$149.99.
The PSP can connect to a Macintosh through its USB 2.0 interface, which can be used to convert and transfer video and other content to the Memory Stick Pro Duo card the PSP uses to store data. Neuros’ MPEG-4 Recorder 2 saves you that intermediate step, enabling you to record directly from your video source to the Memory Stick, without having to go through the computer first.
You can record directly from any video sources, including cable TV, satellite, PVRs and DVRs. The device records to MPEG-4 video format to Memory Stick or Compact Flash media. A remote control is included.
The MPEG-4 Recorder 2 supports three resolution settings and four recording quality settings, and supports Advanced Audio Codec (AAC) for sound. It’s also firmware-upgradable.
