Mitsubishi announced the development of the red
semiconductor laser for 16X DVD recording.
Mass production of the "ML1XX25 series" will start end of May.
The new laser unit supports recording for all DVD recordable/rewritable
formats. The 16x recording speed requires a 250mW laser power, while the 12x (200mW)
is already supported by the previous series of the company (MX1XX23).
Mitsubishi technology guarantees flawless DVD recording and problems due
to high heat when writing at 16x have been over passed. For more
