Ricoh ships first High Speed CDR-W discs and drives capable of 10X writing/rewriting


"...Ricoh Company's Disc Media and Systems Center Division today announced the technological development of "RICOH CD-RW 74 minute 10X media," the world's fastest CD-RW disc. Ricoh has developed this new disc compatible with writing/rewriting speeds of 4x to 10x to conform with the most recent version of the CD-RW standard, Orange Book Part III, Volume 2, Ver. 1.0. Simultaneously, Ricoh DMS announced it has developed a multi-function drive that records CD-RW at 10X. Announcements on both products will follow pending general availability sometime during the second quarter.

The recently established new CD-RW standard Orange Book Part III, Volume 2, Ver. 1.0 allows writing and rewriting of 4x to 10x to meet the needs of higher speed CD writing and rewriting. (The existing Orange Book Part III, Volume 1, Ver. 2.0 enables 1x, 2x, and 4x writing/rewriting.) Applications will include video, imaging, internet, software development, multi-media presentations and more.

This new Ricoh CD-RW disc is directly writable/rewritable at high speed on CD-R/RW drive units compatible with the latest standard soon to be released by Ricoh and other major drive manufacturers. It also has high compatibility with various other types of drive units so that disc data can be read on conventional CD-R/RW drive units, MultiRead-enabled CD-ROM drive units, DVD-ROM drive units, and DVD-RAM drive units.

Other characteristics for both the drives and media include high-speed packet writing capabilities, allowing direct writing/rewriting in CAV (constant angular velocity) mode, as well as conventional CLV (constant linear velocity) mode. The media achieves high-reliability in writing/rewriting by reducing the jitter rate (time axis fluctuation) and error rate through a wide power margin design.

The CD-RW disc is rapidly spreading as a common storage media. The world market volume of CD-RW media has been estimated as approximately 39 million discs in 1999 and is expected to reach 132 million discs in 2000. The CD-RW media's projected MSRP is $4 per disc..."
