DBL to Stock Hitachi DVD Camcorders

The distributor says the new partnership adds a another dimension to its roster of photo and video products.

Scottsdale AZ–DBL Distributing has signed a new distribution agreement with Hitachi. The partnership adds Hitachis line of DVD camcorders to DBLs line of product offerings in the photo/video category.

DBL will carry Hitachis DZHS300A hybrid DVD/HDD camcorder which lets users capture hours of movies directly to a built-in hard drive without changing discs or tapes or running out of space. The critical last step in enjoying and sharing these movies however is to transfer them from the hard drive to DVDs, and the Hitachi DZHS300A hybrid camcorder is the only camcorder on the market that allow users to record directly to their hard drive and then transfer to a DVD that resides in the camcorder with a push of a button–completely bypassing the need to transfer their recordings to a personal computer. Hitachis DZHS300A hybrid DVD camcorder supports five industry recording formats; including DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM and SD Card.

We are thrilled to offer Hitachi branded camcorders to our customers, said David Lorsch, DBLs founder, president and CEO. Hitachi is known for setting the standard in camcorder design with innovative original technology and seamless integration attributes that our base of customers and the public are demanding. DBL sells and markets to more than 10,000 independent photo/video dealers who compete with national chains and big box retailers, according to Lorsch. Through DBL, independent photo/video dealers are better suited to compete and level the playing field by having easy access to product offerings that put them on par with big national chains. Lorsch went on to say that Hitachi is known for being the first to market the DVD camcorder back in 1999, now DBL is pleased to be one of the first distributors to market Hitachis latest innovative camcorder–the hybrid DVD/hard drive camcorder.

Recently introduced at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, DBL has already begun marketing Hitachis DZHS300A, a 680K DVD HDD hybrid camcorder with 25X optical zoom, a 2.7-inch wide LCD, 8GB built-in hard drive, SD memory card slot and electronic image stabilization. DBL also recently started marketing the Hitachi DZGX3300A, a 3.3 mega pixel CCD DVD camcorder with 10X optical zoom, a 2.7-inch wide LCD screen, remote control and accessories including a DVD-R disc and S-video, AV and USB cables. As an added bonus to photo/video dealers, DBL is offering a FREE Hitachi Memory Album Set to be included with every DZGX3300A purchased through DBL until supplies last The Hitachi Memory Album Set includes two durable custom memory storage albums with label windows and 12 Maxell DVD-R discs.

Adding the high caliber of the newest products such as Hitachis DZHS300A and DZGX3300A is just what our retail and fulfillment service customers expect from DBL, states Henry Chiarelli, DBLs chief merchandising officer. The Hitachi line further enhances the quality of innovative video products that we offer our customers.
