Developed for professional users, the new Pioneer BDR-202 internal drive for PCs supports the writing of both write-once (BD-R) and rewritable (BD-RE) single-layer Blu-ray discs.
The writer, which is now available in Europe, is compatible with a range of DVD and CD media; speeds include 12X writing to DVD-R/+R, 6X to DVD-RW/+RW and 24X to CD-R/RW.
The optical pickup unit is equipped with our newly developed BD/DVD/CD three-way compatible lens that realises high-speed recording at a maximum speed of 4X on BD-R media and 2X speed on BD-RE.
The writer also reads BD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs, and read/writes to DVD-R/+R, DVD-RW/+RW, DVD-R DL/+R DL Dual/Double-Layer discs and also CD-R/RW discs.
The BDR-202 includes a range of innovations to enhance read/write capabilities including:
- Ultra DRA: which suppresses vibration when writing based on know-how that we have been cultivating in the development of DVD writers.
- Limited Equalizer LSI : that improves reading reliability.
- Multi-Effect Liquid Crystal Tilt Compensator: that advances the recording and playback characteristics by adding correction to the laser beam which compensates for disc impurities such as titled media and media of various thickness.
The BDR-202 includes CyberLink's BD Solution software package to enable the creation and playback of BD movies and the creation and playback of DVDs and CDs. It is expected to retail for around €490.00.
