Sony to Release TV Recorder/Tuner for Clies – PEGA-VR100K Video Recorder

by Reads (8,541)

Sony is going to release a very interesting product. The PEGA-VR100K video recorder essentially will record television straight to your Memory Stick in Clie-ready format and viewable size (320 x 240). Asian release is scheduled for November 1.


Unfortunately it looks like this device will only record at 15fps, which is fine for most models, but the new UX series can support a much faster frame rate. It will also feature three recording qualities, the higher ones obviously using up more of the memory stick. From their site it looks like the following table shows you how much time to expect out of each Memory Stick size:

^ [ h u [ X e B b N v E u [ X e B b NPRO v e
1GB 512MB 256MB 128MB
iHQ j 250 120 55 30
W iSP j 460 220 105 60
1 iLP1 j 1000 490 230 130

It’s still unknown if this will be released in the US, and at current coversion prices, the VR100K would sell for about $255. While I think this is a tool many like myself would enjoy, I’m not sure the mass market is there, in the US anyway.
