Lite-On and Sony team up

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 26 Feb 2003 9:54 User comments (3)

The two companies were said to be cooperating on developing DVD-Dual chipsets, scheduled for launch in the second quarter. These highly integrated chipsets combine support for the DVD+RW and DVD-RW standards and could help DVD-Dual optical drives/players become mainstream products.
While Lite-On has established itself a strong position in the late CD-R market, it may well be that it is looking for DVD recordable technology from this alliance. Sony pretty much failed to produce a killer product for the CD-R market, even though they have been on the market for years. On the blooming DVD recordable market Sony has so far seemed to maintain a higher profile.

Perhaps we will see a Sony drive carrying a Lite-On badge?

Sony Products are Over Prices and Lacking of any innovative features compared to any other competing product, not to mention when they die and you are out of warranty, cost of repair is astronomical.
