While PCs are the expected, and most obvious platform for DVD burning, it is clear that non-PC platforms are rising in popularity for this activity, and DVD recording habits are evolving, reports research firm In-Stat.

A recent In-Stat survey shows that the greater flexibility provided by DVD playback (versus VCR tapes) is resulting in changing consumer habits, as they often play them while traveling, while at school or elsewhere.

"Consumers are becoming more active in recording their own DVDs," said Joyce Putscher, In-Stat analyst. "DVD recorders are being used to burn DVDs of personal content from home videos and digital photos, as well as TV shows and movies."

A recent report by In-Stat found the following:

  • Consumers are more likely to record TV series shows with their PVR/DVR with built-in DVD recorder than any other type of programming.

  • Many respondents would be willing to pay for rights to permit them to record commercial-free versions of their favorite TV shows or mini-series.

  • Over one-third of respondents are likely to purchase a DVD even if they have already recorded it.

    Survey respondents indicated their ownership and use of DVD players by platform type and where they are being used; ownership and use of video capture and recording devices; DVD burning behavior and type of broadcast programming by platform; interest in downloading, recording, and paying for commercial-free content, and how they desire to receive those downloads; and awareness and use of popular DVD burning software.
