CD-RW Industry Leaders Introduce New DVD+RW Initiatives


"...Hewlett-Packard, MCC/Verbatim, Philips, Ricoh, Sony and Yamaha Corporation, the industry leaders in CD-ReWritable technology, today announced two new initiatives designed to speed 4.7GB DVD+RW acceptance within the PC and consumer-electronics (CE) industries.

The DVD+RW verification program is designed to ensure continued compatibility and to answer manufacturers' questions regarding the format. The six companies openly invited all manufacturers to participate in the program.

The PC Expo event was part of an ongoing series of DVD+RW initiatives. The six companies publicly demonstrated real-time DVD+RW video recording and compatibility with existing DVD video and DVD-ROM drives at CeBIT 2000 earlier this year..."
