Nero, leaders in digital media technology and Philips, one of the world?s largest manufactures of consumer electronics, announced today that they have partnered with LightScribe to bring the Direct Disc Labeling technology to consumers. With this implementation, Nero, Philips and LightScribe allow the user to take control of the entire digital media creation process from start to finish.
Philips? new DVDRW16LSK, a 16X dual layer, dual format DVDRW drive, supports LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling, which is a new technology that offers consumers and businesses a simple, no-hassle way to burn professional silkscreen-quality labels on their CDs and DVDs.
?Nero and Philips together provide the perfect vehicle to bring LightScribe to consumers,? said Jim Corbett, Executive Director of Nero AG. ?Nero?s family of award-winning digital media products and Philips? new 16X DL burner with LightScribe?s Direct Disc Labeling, gives the user artistic license to design disc labels any way they like.?
After data is recorded to a disc, users can then turn the disc over, reinsert it into the drive and burn a precise, iridescent label with their desired text and graphics using the same laser that burns the data ? no printer, permanent marker or adhesive labelling is required.
?Nero offers an easy-to-use software solution, that lets the user create an attractive label instantly?, said Pierre van Lamsweerde, Business Line Manager Philips. Therefore, they are the logical choice to bundle with our high quality DVD ReWriters. ?
