SnapStream Media Joins DVD+RW AllianceCompany to Incorporate Rewritable DVD Technology Into PVR and Streaming Products (October 01, 2001)
SnapStream's PVS software allows consumers to turn their PCs into personal video recorders with the enhanced functionality of being able to watch digitally-recorded television programs using PCs, home networks, LANs or Pocket PC PDAs.
By joining the Alliance, SnapStream plans to market, develop and produce DVD+RW products in the 2001-2002 time frame and will lend its name and logo to promotional materials related to the new recording format.
The DVD+RW format is capable of recording up to 4.7 gigabytes of digital video, images or data. This equates to roughly the storage capacity of seven CD-R/RWs and the potential to store thousands of digital photographs or approximately two hours of digital video. In addition, the DVD+RW format supports write once DVD+R capability. To date, more than 40 companies support the DVD+RW format.
