Pioneer Australia releases new CD & DVD recording kits

Pioneer Electronics has launched two new retail upgrade drive kits in response to the growing demand for drives offering both recording and DVD playback functionality.

DVD RECORDER KIT

The DVR-104EXT combines Pioneer’s popular DVD-R/RW “Superdrive” with an attractive, fully enclosed Firewire IEEE1394/USB 2.0 external case for convenient and portable connection to desktop or laptop computers. This kit enables recording to DVD-R media at 2X and DVD-RW at 1X. It will also record to CD media (8X to CD-R and 4X to CD-RW) as well as playing back CD and DVD-ROMs, VCDs and DVD-Video discs.

The DVD-R/RW format has proved to be the most popular DVD recording format locally due to its high compatibility of recorded media when played back in DVD players or DVD-ROM drives and the low cost of DVD-R and -RW media. The format is also approved by the DVD Forum which controls DVD standards and licensing worldwide.

DVR-104EXT Unit

As a special bonus offer the DVR-104EXT kit contains DVDit! Professional Edition DVD authoring software valued at $1,699 RRP which includes an MPEG2 encoder. Writing and video editing software is also included along with DVD-R and -RW media and firewire IEEE1394 and USB cables.

The DVR-104EXT retails for $1,199 and is covered by a 1 year warranty.

DVD-ROM CD RECORDER KIT

The DCR-111KIT contains a Pioneer Internal IDE Combo Drive (CD-R/RW/DVD-ROM), Veritas RecordNow and DLA writing software and the popular PowerDVD XP MPEG2 decoder for watching DVD movies on your PC.

The DCR-111 Combo Drive records to CD-R at 12X and to CD-RW at 10X as well as playing back DVD-ROM at 12X and CD-ROM at 40X. This is an ideal solution for anyone requiring the ability to record to CD and play back those increasingly popular DVDs.

The DCR-111KIT retails for $269 and, like all Pioneer optical drives, offers whisper quiet operation even at the highest speeds thanks to Pioneer’s extensive experience in this technology over more than 20 years.
