Ricoh announces 4x DVD+RW/+R drives and media


Ricoh Company, Ltd, a co-technology developer of the CD-RW and DVD+RW rewritable formats, announced its next generation DVD/CD writable drives and media products. The new internal 4x speed DVD/CD drive boasts the highest DVD recording speed and allows 4.7GB of data to be burned onto a 4x DVD+R disc and a 4x DVD+RW disc in less than 15-minutes. Ricoh also announced its entry into the notebook computer market with an industry first low-powered, slim-line drive. Ricoh has scheduled to ship drives and media during 1Q of 2003.

"The new 4x internal DVD+RW/+R drive and 2.4x DVD+RW/+R notebook drive will support Mt. Rainier specifications of CD-RW/DVD+RW allowing users to write to DVD by using simple drag & drop operation with the next generation of Windows OS (Longhorn)," says Steve Van Vorst, Ricoh's U.S. National Sales and Marketing Manager.

"DVD+RW/+R format can meet demands of various applications from video recording to data storage. Especially with the DVD+RW Video Recording format (DVD+VR format), users can record video on a DVD+RW disk in real time and can add video or delete and edit video content retaining playback compatibility with almost all DVD movie players."

Today's computer and consumer electronics applications look to use one, cost-effective medium for home entertainment and PC applications. With Ricoh's core technology, DVD+RW/+R products bridge CD and DVD writing with the convergence of consumer video recording and business storage requirements. Computer users can customize and edit home movies from tape to DVD discs and then view them in nearly all DVD-ROM drive and DVD movie players. Similarly, DVD+RW consumer recorders are available to record broadcasts that can be edited on a computer with a DVD+RW drive. As a result of the convergence, industry analysts expect writable DVD drive sales to surpass 30 million drives by 2005. Ricoh is the technology leader in the development of DVD+RW/+R technology for both the desktop and notebook computer market and continues to support the leading software vendors.
