Philips announces "Orange Book Part II v1.2"

The Orange Book Part II or System Description CD Write Once (CD-WO) specifies the CD-WO disc format. The name CD-R (CD Recordable) is more commonly used than CD-WO. The CD Recordable (CD-R) system gives the opportunity to write once and read many times CD information. The recorded CD-R disc is “Red Book or Yellow Book compatible” so it can play back on conventional CD players. The CD-R format gives the possibility for both Audio (CD-DA) and Data (CD-ROM) recording.

Volume 1

This volume defines recording speed of 1x, 2x and 4 times nominal CD speed. (Latest version 3.1, Dec 1998.)

This volume defines 6 disc types with linear recording speeds up to 16x, 20x, 24x, 32x, 40x and 48x nominal CD speed. (Latest version 1.2, April 2002.)
