Samsung Launches High-End 16X DVD ReWritable Disc DriveWritemaster TS-H552B newest entry in its optical disc drive family (September 07, 2004)
Samsung Electronics Ltd., the worldwide digital consumer electronics and information technology leader, announces the newest entry in its award-winning optical disc drive family, the Writemaster TS-H552B 16X DVD ReWritable drive. The double-layer TS-H552B supports all the popular DVD recordable/rewritable formats, and provides computer users with greater storage power and even more flexibility to enjoy favorite movies and music, and archive data without regard to format variations.
?DVD storage is rapidly becoming the standard media format, enabling users to share multimedia presentations, burn or convert video clips, and create custom CD-R discs in minutes,? said Tom Quinn, Senior Vice President, Memory Sales and Marketing for Samsung SSI. ?As a leader in DVD and optical disc drive development and manufacturing, Samsung has the capability to offer the latest technologies at more affordable price points.
The TS-H552B provides double-layer data storage up to 8.5GB in one disc, which is two times more than single-layer DVD and 12 times more than a CD disc. To reduce noise when recording or reading at high speeds and ensure outstanding functionality, the TS-H552B features Samsungs Silent Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) technology and an Automatic Ball Balancing System (ABS).
Fast and reliable performance of the TS-H552B is ensured through several high-end technologies including: Speed Adjustment Technology (SAT), which automatically optimizes the speed according to the disc quality; Tilt Actuator Compensation (TAC), which gives the disc a tilt with the objective lens for the most reliable writing condition; and Double Optimum Power Control (OPC), which strengthens the writing performance by controlling the laser power in the inner and outer sides of the disc. The drive also includes a power save function and technology to prevent Buffer Under Run Error.
The TS-H552B is capable of recording DVD+R media at 16X, DVD-R at 12X, DVD+/-RW at 4X and double layer DVD+R. The new 16X rewritable disc drive is now shipping with an estimated price of $200.
