BenQ launches dual layer DVD writer in Q1-Q2 2004


According to CDRInfo sources, BenQ will be possibly the first manufacturer to offer dual layer recording on DVD media. The successor of the DW800A is planned to hit the market between Q1 and Q2 of 2004. The information is not officially confirmed by BenQ.

The upcoming dual layer burner will probably borrow some mechanical parts from the DW800A. However, current laser diodes as well as power controllers are not capable to offer the appropriate power for dual layer writing. Thus, firmware upgrade of the DW800A will offer very weak possibilities to control the laser power for dual layer discs.

According to unofficial information, the new drive with support 8x DVD+R, 4x DVD+RW and 2.4 DVD+R9 writing.

Availability of dual layer DVD media is another question. Mitsubishi Chemicals will be the first manufacturer to offer such media, expected in Q2 2004.
