All-in-One Digital Still, Digital Video, PC Cam, Digital Voice Recorder, & MP3 Player

Technology toys, like remote controls, always seem to add up.  Consumers are in need of a device that combines all the popular electronics into one, affordable unit, like a Universal Remote Control. 

Concord Camera Corporation is on the right track, announcing a two megapixel digital still camera that also functions as video, PC cam, voice recorder, and MP3 player.

The Concord DV2020 was designed with the video photographer and digital photo taking enthusiast in mind.  Encased in a sleek aluminum body, the camera's familiar 'video camera' shape and 270º adjustable LCD make it comfortable for videographers to take video from any position, whether on the ground or above the head.  The high quality 1.5" LTPS LCD is 117k pixels providing a higher LCD quality than the standard digital camera that has an 80k pixel LCD. 

The package includes 16MB of internal storage as well as an SD memory card slot.  Video recording time is limited only by the capacity of the SD card.  With a 128MB SD card in Normal Mode, 84 minutes of high-quality 17 fps (frames per second) video recording can be captured at a resolution of 160 x 120.    8 ½ hours of voice can also be recorded -- for a convenient always-there digital voice recorder, perfect for meetings, interviews, and lectures -- with or without the video recording feature turned on. 

More than a digital video camera, it's also a 2 Megapixel digital still camera with all of the standard digital camera features that Concord is known for, such as the popular 5 scene mode for no-nonsense optimal exposure settings for different lighting conditions, selectable white balance, center weighted metering, an array of flash settings, and a 2X digital zoom (4X digital zoom for video).  In addition, the Concord DV2020 also plays consumer's favorite MP3 music recorded on a removable SD card, which can be listened to in private with the DV cam's included earphones.  All of these features make the Concord DV2020 the ultimate camera to bring everywhere you go.

The Concord DV2020 is expected to be available in May, 2004 priced at $229.99 SRP through Concord retailers.  It is compatible with Windows 98 SE, 2000, ME, XP and Mac OS 9.0.  The camera comes with a pouch, earphone, strap, USB and AV cables, 1 Lithium-Ion battery, AC adapter, ArcSoft PhotoImpression software, and User & Quick Start Guides.
