External DL DVD burner from Freecom

With the FX-50 Double Layer, Freecom is marketing a DVD burner with doublelayer technology that can store up to 8.5 gigabytes of data on a DVD medium. The external multi-format burner from Freecom offers the very latest technology for every application: DVD+R double-layer burner, DVD+/-R(W) burner, CD-R(W) burner and DVD/CD-ROM drive, all in a single unit.

The FX-50 external multi-format double-layer DVD burner from Freecom has been available in the shops since the start of June, making it one of the first external DVD+/-RW solutions with double-layer technology on the market. Using the new double-layer technology, the drive writes not one layer, as previously, but two overlapping layers of data on DVDs, thus allowing it to store up to 8.5 gigabytes of data or up to four hours of video on the relevant media.

The DVD+R Double Layer type media are compatible with DVD-ROM drives and DVD players and are written by the Freecom drive at 2.4x speed. The FX-50 offers an 8x writing speed for conventional DVD+R/DVD-Rs and a 4x writing speed for DVD+RWs/DVD-RWs, enabling a 4.7 gigabyte blank disc to be written in about 8 minutes. CD-R/RW media are written at either 32x or 16x speed, and CD/DVD-ROMs read at 40x or 12x speed. The external multi-format burner with double-layer technology can be installed in seconds by simply connecting it to the USB 2.0 or FireWire interface using the cable supplied – for maximum performance on both PCs and notebooks. Power is provided by the included power supply unit.

With the Freecom FX-50 multi-format DVD burner, users can create double-layer DVDs, DVDs and CDs, read CD-ROMs and play DVD videos. Using the included software, videos can be digitally edited on the computer and then stored on double-layer DVD (8.5 GB). The FX-50 Double Layer enables the storage of up to four hours of high-quality film recording or up to five-and-a-half hours of video recording in VHS quality on a double-layer DVD. With the comprehensive software supplied, video files, photo and music files can be professionally edited, as well as creating back-ups in only a few steps.

Freecom supplies the FX-50 DVD+/-RW Double Layer together with USB 2.0 and FireWire connection cable and a comprehensive range of software. The latest Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator DVD Edition DVD/CD burner software also includes DVD-Builder for video editing and DVD authoring and the DVDMax DVD player software. The package also includes: a power supply unit, one DVD+R, one CD-R and the multi-lingual manual. The Freecom FX-50 Double Layer is as of today available in the shops for € 209.- (suggested selling price excl. VAT), and comes complete with the usual Freecom 2-year manufacturer’s guarantee and unlimited free helpdesk support.
