According to DigiTimes, Lite-On IT expects its DVD burner shipments to rise from a monthly average of 500,000-600,000 units in previous months to 700,000-800,000 units in August...
and further to 900,000 to a million units each month next quarter, according to the company.
Next quarter, Lite-On IT may become the largest maker of DVD burners worldwide, the company emphasized.
The growth in shipments is partly due to an adequate supply of DVD burner chipsets from MediaTek, Lite-On IT indicated.
Other DVD burner makers in Taiwan, including BenQ, Behavior Tech Computer (BTC), Quanta Storage and Accesstek, are considering adoption of Mediatek?s chipsets because the company offers lower prices than imported products and can act as a second source to secure stable supply.
Mediatek recently began volume shipments of chipsets for use in 16x DVD burners, Lite-On IT said.
