Sony Debuts GV-D1000 MiniDV Video Walkman VCR(January 07, 2002)
Similar to a standard VCR, the GV-D1000 unit is a fully functional playback and recording deck. Using the same MiniDV tapes found in MiniDV Handycam camcorders, users simply insert a cassette and view video on the 4-inch LCD monitor or connect to a television set for full-size viewing.

The MiniDV Video Walkman VCR also provides two new ways to connect to a PC. USB Streaming uses a simple universal serial bus (USB) connection allowing videos to be streamed over the Internet for on-line viewing with Microsoft Windows NetMeeting software. In addition, the GV-D1000 model is the first of its kind to incorporate a Memory Stick media slot.
Users can capture still images at 640 x 480 resolution directly to Memory Stick media from the MiniDV tape for easy transfer to a PC, which can then be shared via email.
Video enthusiasts can also capture and share video within seconds with MPEG Movie Mode. Select up to 60 seconds of digital video from the MiniDV tape and easily convert it to MPEG1 with the touch of a button. These mini-movies can be stored directly on Memory Stick media and can be shared instantly by sending video clip attachments to email or posting to the Internet.
