Message Text: "...Hewlett-Packard ,Philips Electronics and Ricoh, three of the six CD-ReWritable technology industry leaders supporting the DVD+RW format, today displayed prototype DVD+RW drives during a breakfast event held at Fall COMDEX 2000. DVD+RW supporters MCC/Verbatim, Sony Corporation and Yamaha Corporation also participated in the event.

The gathering marked the first time the DVD+RW format's compatibility was demonstrated in the United States by burning content onto a DVD+RW disc in real-time using a DVD+RW drive installed in a personal computer and then playing that disc using standard ``off-the-shelf'' consumer DVD video players. To further demonstrate the convergence possibilities of the DVD+RW format, another real-time recording was made on a consumer DVD+RW video recorder and played back in both a DVD-ROM drive installed in a personal computer and the consumer DVD video players.

The COMDEX event was part of an ongoing series of DVD+RW initiatives. For more information concerning DVD+RW, interested parties can visit http://www.dvdrw.com..."
