One of the main features of the iVDR is its large recording capacity. The iVDR can record lengthy terrestrial digital high-definition broadcast* or BS digital HD broadcast programs**. An hour-long HD program requires some 8 to 11 GB*** of recording capacity. For example, one 1TB iVDR can record some 90 to 126 hours of HD programs without quality being lost. Furthermore, the capacity of hard disks incorporated in iVDRs is expected to increase year by year.
