Panasonic has used this week’s Japanese CEATEC Expo to unveil a trio of high capacity Blu-ray recorders. Its new BW700, BW800 and BW900 machines offer hard drives of 250GB, 500GB and 1TB respectively. Consequently, the flagship BW900 can record 381 hours of HD video. The company has also hinted that it will soon emerge from its Blu-ray hibernation, with a cheaper player and some aggressive promotional plans. According to Panasonic’s Kazuhiro Tsuga, the BD format will soon have a substantial lead over HD DVD.
