Philips, MediaTek to offer dual-layer DVD+R chipsets in 2Q


Philips Semiconductors and MediaTek expect to begin offering recording kit solutions for dual-layer recording on DVD+R in the second quarter of this year, according to DigiTimes.com

Philips expects to begin offering downloadable firmware that supports dual-layer DVD+R technology to system makers in the second quarter, according to Philips sources.

System makers can download the firmware to upgrade existing DVD+RW chips from supporting 4.7GB to 8.5GB. BenQ has already committed to the technology for 8x DVD systems.

According to Philips statements, the DVD9 discs will be fully compatible with current DVD players.

Philips Research co-developed dual-layer DVD+R technology with Japan’s Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM).

On the other hand, Pioneer's reaction includes a possible demonsrtation of its DVD9 proposal in CeBIT 2004, Hanover.
