Philips is pushing the DVD+RW technology to the general mass market, but also has updated their CD-R technology.
Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) today announced a manufacturing-ready six-channel DVD+R/+RW recorder reference design for the consumer market. By integrating Philips' Class-D amplifier family with Philips Nexperia DVD+R/+RW total turnkey system solution, manufacturers will be able to rapidly address the emerging DVD+R/+RW recorder market with AM/FM Radio, RDS, surround audio decoding and six-channel Class-D in time for the 2003 holiday sales season. The combination of these features will enable consumers to purchase a DVD-recorder based Home-Theater-in-a-Box (HTiB) which is a system currently based only on DVD players.
