The RW Products Promotion Initiative and the
Recordable DVD Council have agreed to
jointly conduct compatibility tests on the products that support
recordable DVD format's comprising DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM from
These joint compatibility tests will be anchored by the RWPPI Round Robin
Test and RDVDC Compatibility Working Group, which are working groups with
the objective of promoting compatibility within RWPPI and RDVDC
respectively. The tests will start with 4x speed DVD-R, 2x speed DVD-RW
and 3x speed DVD-RAM with the participation of the members from each
working group to the other working group's activities.
Koki Aizawa, RWPPI Representative Director said, "RWPPI has been
conducting compatibility tests on products and systems based on DVD-R/ and
DVD-RW formats since February 2002. The Joint Round Robin Test with RDVDC
will enable a broader scope for compatibility verification of
DVD-R/DVD-RW-related products to increase user-benefits."
Bon-Guk Koo, RDVDC Chairman stated, "The joint compatibility tests with
RWPPI will lead to effective compatibility verification of all recordable
DVD products that are DVD-RAM, DVD-R and DVD-RW formats specified by the
DVD Forum. This is really significant in terms of the further development
of the industry."
RWPPI and RDVDC will continue to enhance their activities to promote the
compatibility of recordable DVD products in the AV and PC markets.
