Hitachi Wooo D Digital Video Recorder Features up to 1 terabyte (TB) of media storage and the ability to record in Hi-Vision (a Japanese high-definition format), this DVR allows consumers to automatically select and play back key highlights from recorded video. Highlighting material on a recording is possible based on changes to audio and video outputs such as an increase in sound or a variation in the brightness or color distribution. To handle the audio and video processing and interface with the host storage device, Hitachi engineers chose Analog Devices' Blackfin processor technology. The ADSP-BF531 processor operates at speeds up to 400 MHz.
