Pioneer Showcases Optical Drive Expertise

OK, Pioneer does make some great products. But these trade deals where everyone comes to see what the latest show-off has to offer does seem to get old. I can understand this sort of thing if it was truly incredible, but another optical drive – whoopee!

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. continues to lead development of new optical drive technologies for DVD and high-definition recording, launching at the Consumer Electronics Show this week the company’s ninth-generation high-speed, dual format DVD burner and demonstrating for the first time new Blu-ray Disc prototypes for home and computer high-definition video recording.

The DVR-A09XL high speed DVD burner introduced today by Pioneer enables computer users to record data, photos and video onto DVD-R, DVD-RW, +R and +RW discs with ease. It also works with dual layer discs, increasing the capacity of a disc from 4.7 to 8.5 gigabytes for even more storage space.

The DVR-A09XL offers many technologies unique to Pioneer, including Quiet Drive for minimal operating noise; Liquid Crystal Control for optimum recording quality; Precision Recording to minimize the effects of long term deterioration of re-recordable discs due to repeated writing; and an Ultra Dynamic Resonance Absorber to reduce vibrations during high-speed recording and playback of discs. The DVR-A09XL comes packaged with high quality software that enables the user to edit home movies, burn music, create photo slideshows and back up data with ease. The DVR-A09XL will begin shipping this month.
