"...The DVD+RW Alliance today announced the addition of write-once (DVD+R) capabilities to rewritable DVD+RW products slated to be introduced this summer.The DVD+RW Alliance discussed DVD+R during an Alliance-sponsored conference with software vendors in San Francisco.
DVD+R discs will offer seven times the storage capacity of a CD-R, can be written and read by DVD+RW drives, and can be played back in the majority of DVD-ROM drives and DVD Video players in use today. Because of this, the DVD+RW Alliance believes DVD+R is the logical extension of CD-R technology and will enable a new level of cconvergence for digital video.
"CD-R and CD-RW gave the world a seamless media exchange between the personal computing and consumer electronics environments for data and music," said Spofford. "Now, DVD+R and DVD+RW will do the same for digital video and images."..."
