Pionner Japan introduces the Pioneer DVR-A06-J!

Pioneer Japan, has announced today that it will introduce a new ATAPI DVD/CD, the DVR-A06-J, in Japan, in June of this year. The new drive will support writing of both DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs. The supported writing speed for the DVD-R and DVD+R format is 4x, while writing at DVD-RW can be obtained at 2x and the DVD+RW at 2.4x.

The worldwide market for recordable DVD drives for personal computers (DVD writers) is expanding at a tremendous rate. According to Pioneer research, about 70% of the DVD writers shipped up until the end of 2002 supported the DVD-R/RW format. By offering reliable performance and versatile functions, Pioneer has earned the trust and appreciation of customers, making Pioneer the recognized company for supplying recordable DVD devices. Furthermore, Microsoft Corporation has announced that its next-generation Windows will support the DVD-R/RW format as the standard.

Since there are several formats in the marketplace, however, confusion is rampant, especially among beginners, who demand a product that can handle these various formats, so as to ease their worries about standard media of the future. In response, Pioneer's new DVR-A06-J DVD/CD writer is designed to handle +R and +RW discs, in addition to DVD-R and DVD-RW discs.

Thanks to Pioneer's original Precision Recording Technology, the DVR-A06-J dramatically improves the writing precision of DVD-RW and ease of use. Writing performance is also improved due to the application of Distributed Real-time Defect Management (DRT-DM), a first for the DVD-RW writers. In addition, by supporting writing and reading capabilities of +R/+RW media, this new model meets the wider-range requirements for DVD and CD writing and reading.

Furthermore, through a wide variety of bundled software, it is possible not only to produce DVD-Video discs easily, but to import data from discs recorded in the VR (Video Recording) format into a personal computer. Other functions include data writing through "drag and drop," just like when using a floppy disc, and free additional writing and editing on either DVD-R or DVD-RW disc. It ultimately offers easy-to-use, more convenient DVD high-speed writing to PC users.

Main Features

The DVR-A06-J enables high-speed writing of 4x with DVD-R discs, 2x with DVD-RW, 4x with +R, and 2.4x with +RW. It also enables 16x writing speed for CD-R and 10x for CD-RW. These permit users to select the appropriate medium, according to data size and purpose.

Application of new Precision Recording Technology

Based on the review result of the overwrite performances of a variety of DVD-RW discs, the DVR-A06-J utilizes a sequence that enables writing under the best conditions at all times. Through this technology, Pioneer succeeded in improving initial writing performance and keeping the deterioration of these qualities through repeated writing to a minimum. As a result, the DVR-A06-J ensures stable writing even on discs that are frequently rewritten and prevents writing errors due to variations in disc quality. The DVR-A06-J achieves an improvement in DVD-RW re-writing performance of approximately 10 times compared with the company's previous models. Moreover, the new model realizes even higher DVD-RW writing reliability thanks to the use of Distributed Real-time Defect Management (DRT-DM), applied for the first time for DVD-RW in the industry. DRT-TM technology permits the stable writing on DVD-RW discs despite stains and scratches, while maintaining playback compatibility without sacrificing writing speed.

Various original technologies to enhance reliability

The new model offers reliability and quiet operation through application of the liquid-crystal tilt mechanism, smart laser driver technology, and dynamic resonance absorber (DRA), which are employed in Pioneer's DVR-A05-J and DVR-S502 and have been well received by customers. Furthermore, the new model's Buffer Under-run Prevention function prevents transfer errors that occur, albeit rarely, at the time of writing on DVD- R, DVD-RW, +R, +RW, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.

- Liquid-crystal tilt mechanism is employed to eliminate any decline in writing and reading precision caused by variations in the curvature and thickness of discs. This technology was derived from the liquid-crystal aberration correcting element that Pioneer had successfully developed for its car electronics products. As a result, high-precision writing is realized even when the signal side is slanting because of the disc's curvature.

- Smart laser driver technology greatly enhances the signal precision at the time of writing by carrying the writing circuit, which usually is carried on the substrate of the main body, in the optical pickup.

- Dynamic resonance absorber (DRA) is used to greatly reduce the machine vibration when the disc rotates at high speed. - 5.25-inch 1-bay, vertical/horizontal compatible type Because the new DVR-A06-J supports both vertical and horizontal installation, it can be used with 1-bay, slim-type PCs for expansion. Bundled Software to the DVR-A06-J

This personal authoring software has a wide range of functions from digital video capture to DVD recording.

ShowBiz (by ArcSoft)
This powerful movie-making software provides both "storyboard" and professional "timeline" functions. A variety of editing options are available, including 100 types of transitions and text effects, plus a post-editing preview mode. Real-time rendering allows quick checking, vastly reducing the time it takes to make movies.

This is DVD/CD writing software for everyone from beginners to power users. Either of two methods can be used to burn discs: the use of Wizard Guides that provide on-screen instructions for easy disc creation, or a Layout Window that allows user to change settings as desired.

WriteDVD! (by SAI) This packet-writing software supports the popular Quick Format with drag-and-drop functionality, making it as easy to write to a DVD as to a floppy disk.

This backup software simplifies the complicated process of backing up important data and system data.
