China starts producing DVD-lasers A Chinese company called Hechuan Photoelectrics has developed, and patented their own version of the DVD-laser optical pickup used in every DVD-player to read data from disc. They will be investing more than $50 million in a factory to produce the parts.
This is great news for the Chinese DVD-market -- until now Chinese DVD-player manufacturers have had to rely on imported DVD-heads. Domestic manufacturing the key components of a DVD player will most definitely boost sales in China. And I'm sure we'll see the players marketed abroad as well.
