LH-20A1P and LH-20A1H – The worlds first 20x DVD Rewriters by Lite-On IT

 

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - Many people thought 16x would be the maximum writing speed for DVD, but after the introduction of 18x DVD rewriters, Lite-On IT increases the industry standard even further by releasing the worlds first 20x DVD rewriters. With the introduction of two new internal DVD rewriters, the LH-20A1P and LH-20A1H, Lite-On IT is the first ODD manufacturer that boosts writing speeds up to 20x, reaching the fastest ever recording times for DVD media.

“As a World leading provider of optical storage solutions for PCs Lite-On IT is obliged to stay in front with new technological breakthroughs”, says Jelmer Veldman, Lite-On IT’s European marketing manager. “Lite-On is the first brand to release a 20x DVD writer. With this drive we can see recording times of a full DVD coming close to five minutes. The drive also features DVD-RAM compatibility at 12x, making it a very complete optical storage solution for everyone’s needs. And for the creative user Lite-On will release a LightScribe version of this drive as well”, Mr. Veldman adds.

The Lite-On LH-20A1P and LH-20A1H are “Super AllWrite™” DVD writers providing consumers a one-stop archival and presentation solution for anyone who has a need to copy and store information, files, photographs, music or any other important data. Both are capable of reading, writing and re-writing any disc format on the market, including DVDRAM and Double-Layer +/- format discs. Both DVD writers also feature Smart-Write™ technology setting the optimal writing strategy. Furthermore, The LH-20A1H is equipped with LightScribe technology. The Lite-On LH-20A1P will be available in Europe end of December 2006. The Lite-On LH-20A1H will be available in Europe early 2007.

About SmartWrite™
SmartWrite™ optimizes the writing strategy for each particular writing session. Through the drive’s self learning mechanism, it automatically detects and decides the optimal write strategy for DVD±R recordable media.

About LightScribe
LightScribe is an innovative technology that uses a special disc drive, special media, and label-making software to burn labels directly onto the surface of a CD or DVD in a very easy way: BURN the data, FLIP the disc and BURN the label. Because the labels are laser-etched (not printed), there’s no ink, no smudging and no peeling.
