Pioneer Takes Wraps off Blu-Ray Drive for PCs
Pioneer today took the wraps off of its first Blu-Ray next-generation DVD drive for PCs, which will be unveiled officially at next week's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and could begin shipping by the end of January.
Pioneer's BDR-101A disc writer gives the Blu-Ray format a leg up in its heated battle with rival HD DVD for supremacy in the optical disc market that is expected to take off in the coming year.
According to the Japanese electronics giant, the new drive will write and read single-layer BD-R and BD-RE discs and read single-layer and double-layer BD-ROM discs, without cartridge. It is designed to ensure high reliability in high-density recording and playback with Blu-Ray discs as well as with DVDs, the company said.
