Lite-On Europe today announced a new line of internal DVD writers that deliver a maximum write speed of 24X on select DVD media, the fastest in the market.
Select drives will also include Lite-On?s own LabelTag and SmartErase technologies ? unique labeling and data erasing features for DVDs and CDs.
Compared to similar devices in the market today, Lite-On?s new internal writers offer the fastest DVD recording available with its DVD writing speeds of 24X. The iHAS624, available in Mid-May, will also feature both LabelTag and SmartErase ? new Lite-On technologies designed for true power users who are concerned with more than just writing speeds.
LabelTag is a patented new feature that allows users to create a circular label on the data side of a standard DVD±R disc ? no special media required. When burning the data, users can add a text and small picture that will be printed directly behind the data in the same session, and on normal recording speed. After labeling, all discs remain fully compatible with other playback devices.
SmartErase, which is included in all new 24X DVD writers, provides users with a permanent solution for erasing discs with confidential data.
These new DVD writers will be available in the following versions:
- iHAS324 - 24X SATA with SmartErase; available in Mid-March
- iHAP424 - 24X PATA with SmartErase and LightScribe; available end of March
- iHAS624 - 24X SATA with SmartErase, LightScribe and LabelTag; available in Mid-May
