Message Text: With BD-ROM compatibility, the drive enables professionals and consumers to watch high-definition (HD) movies on PCs.

It also includes read support for single and dual-layer Blu-ray disc formats together with high-speed read/write compatibility with a range of DVD and CD media.

"Blu-ray is in pole position to capture demand for HD movies: it's supported by seven out of the eight major Hollywood studios. We've ensured that BDC-202 is price competitive to existing next generation drives so systems builders can enable consumers to access this extensive catalogue of Blu-ray titles in stunning quality," says Chris Tampsett, Director, Pioneer Europe Multimedia Division. "And with DVD and CD read/write compatibility, the drive provides a compelling mix of high-quality entertainment and practicality. We anticipate that it will lead the emergence of the Blu-ray format for both professional and personal use on computers."

The drive also supports high-speed DVD read/write (including DVD-R/RW, +R/RW and DVD-RAM) and CD read/write to manage general-purpose data-intensive file transfer and archiving; from creating image libraries and MP3 catalogues, to home movies and system back-ups.

The BDC-202 will be sold to OEMs and systems builders. It will be available from the second quarter of 2007.
