Blu Ray recorders just came out at about $1,000.
And about $20 per blank disc; 25 gigs!!!

Looks like an internal. Maybe has Mac drivers?
Worst case you could put it into a pc and transfer
your AV drive over to the pc. I would guess Apple
will or may already have a Blu Ray solution out?
Just export the HD footage in parts from FCP and
then backup those data files(video) onto the Blu Ray Disc(s).

Thanks! This really shows promise. Maybe I could sell my HDCAM deck.

Have you or anyone else on this forum had any experience with these disks; that is their reliability, and longevity? It's been my experience with DVD-R or DVD+R, that the media degrades over time, especially every time it is played.

However, you are suggesting saving as data files rather than DVD (HD?) Video files, so is there any difference? Is this process more like using CD-ROM disks for data storage, which I have found extremely reliable?

Good topic for discussion. I know this is slightly off the topic of JVCProHD cams, decks etc., but I own one, so does that count?
