Owners can use the DVR to convert an hour of video for their PlayStation Portables (PSP) or X-1000 series portable media players in approximately 2 minutes. Users can also record digital content to the hard disk or a recordable Blu-ray Disc. Improvements over previous models include a new CREAS 2 engine for improved video playback quality and upscaling support, plus a new Dynamic VBR mode for better video recording. As with the mid to high end Blu-ray DVRs also announced at the same time by Sony, this particular model features DLNA support for sharing media content over a home network. The Sony BDZ-EX200 does not currently have a MSRP, but should be released sometime in November.
