PYRO 1394 DVD-R/RW
The PYRO DVD-R/RW is the latest in DVD Recordable/Re-recordable drives. Featuring the third-generation DVD recorder from Pioneer, the PYRO 1394 DVD-R/RW utilizes the FireWire interface and enables users to publish their own DVD video projects. This will be offered at substantially lower cost than previous DVD-R solutions and breaks a significant price barrier for home users and small businesses interested in creating their own DVD videos.
Projects written with the bundled DVD authoring solution, Sonic Solutions' MyDVD, to DVD-R media can be played on most DVD set-top players and DVD-ROM drives. Available in late June; estimated MSRP will be just over $1,000.
