Developed for professional users, Pioneer's new 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 versatile writer, which is now available in Europe, is also 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 the following:
- 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 dramatically 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.
