Sony Electronics is delivering what it calls an enhanced level of recording accuracy, compatibility and reliability with its new recordable DVD media, AccuCore. Sony's 16x DVD-R and DVD+R media will mark the first product introductions to feature AccuCore, which also will be implemented in the company's 8x recordable DVD products.
AccuCore technology disc-recording benefits include wider compatibility for DVD-R and DVD+R recordings with various types of drives or recorders at various speeds, faster addressing of the DVD-R format in high-speed dubbing and time-shift playback applications, stable writing capabilities for both DVD-R and DVD+R formats through reduced disc vibrations at high speeds, greater temperature adaptability for optimal performance during extended burning processes for all DVD-R/-RW and DVD+R/+RW formats, and improved archival reliability for long-term storage for all formats.
The first new Sony products to feature AccuCore, 16x DVD-R and DVD+R recordable consumer media, will almost double the recording speed over previous high-speed offerings, said Sony. The 16x format will be able to burn a full-length 4.7GB DVD in about six minutes, with a 16x compatible drive.
Availability had been scheduled for February, with suggested retails for 16x DVD-R and DVD+R with Accucore at $1.69 per disc and $16.99 for a 10-disc pack.
