US largest consumer electronic products show – 2002 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) becomes the focal exhibition that attracted the attention of international manufacturers, visitors, and media. RITEK will exhibit its full range of storage media products. Besides the newly introduced 32x CD-R and 12x CD-RW, RITEK will launch a complete DVD product line including DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM.
Given that the DVD business will see a significant growth in 2002 and the conservative estimate of DVD-R global shipping volume will be about 100 million pieces, RITEK is very optimistic about the DVD market development and in turn pays a lot of attention to the DVD product line.
24x CD-R is recently mass-produced and launched to the market. RITEK already took the lead in completing the R&D of 32x CD-R not long ago and passed the labs accreditation testing. With the introduction of 32x CD-R, users will be able to correctly store data at a higher speed. Likewise, 12x CD-RW, which is also recently introduced by RITEK, allows users to repeatedly read and write data for over 1000 times at a 12x high speed. The two latest versions will be the focuses of RITEK’s exhibition in the show.
Believing that the future will move into the age of DVD, RITEK has started to spare no efforts on DVD product lines since last year, including all-purpose DVD-Recordable products for DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM. DVD-R Discs made by RITEK are in two specifications: one is 3.95GB and 4.7GB DVD-R for Authoring, and the other 4.7GB DVD-R for General exclusive for family DVD players. For DVD-RW, RITEK stays close to the major specification setter – Pioneer and has rapidly launched the latest Version 1.1 4.7GB DVD-RW. DVD-RAMs by RITEK, including 2.6GB, 4.7GB, 5.2GB, and 9.4GB, are all in mass production. Hence, the product lines are very complete.
RITEK will also present IA (Information Appliance) products such as Copy Tower, Digital Photo Printer, and 8cm MP3 in CES 2002. For storage media products, RITEK will present CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RAM/RW, DVD+RW, MD, MO, and portable storage media including CompactFlash Card, SmartMedia Card and MultiMedia Card. Other items to be exhibited include OLED displays for mobile phone and PDA, photonics products like DWDM Thin Film Filter and Transceiver.
