BenQ announced officially the world’s first 8x DVD+/-RW re-writer with firmware upgrade to DVD+R double-layer recordable drive. BenQ DW822A provides a free firmware upgrade feature to become a double-layer recordable drive. The firmware features 2.4x DVD+R double-layer recording speed and will be available in the beginning of Q4-2004, when double-layer media becomes more accessible in the market.
BenQ DW822A brings users dual DVD+/-RW recording capability and the advanced version of QVideo 2.0 to provide users an easy DV/TV/AV to DVD tool. The drive supports Book Type Management and enables easy switching from DVD+R/RW to the most compatible DVDROM format. Because with the BenQ DW822A, you can now start experiencing seamless real-time recording from multiple video sources, or large data backup capacity, and then upgrade it to a double-layer recordable drive when the media becomes available later this year.
