TDK and Pioneer will develop faster stand-alone DVD recorders

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 12 Feb 2003 13:58

TDK and Pioneer announced that they will develop faster burning capabilities into their DVD recorders range that use DVD-R and DVD-RW formats.
Companies' threat is really not the "plus camp" which only shares an insignificant portion of the world's stand-alone DVD recorder markets, but the DVD-RAM format, most widely used by Panasonic. DVD-RAM controls the stand-alone recorders' market, specially in Japan -- Japan itself is the world's largest market for DVD recorders, beating hands down Europe and U.S.

TDK and Pioneer have plans to announce 4x or 5x stand-alone DVD recorders within this year to fight against the DVD-RAM in Japanese markets and DVD+RW camp in emerging European and American markets.
