Ricoh announce DVD+RW/+R 4x recorder

Ricoh have announced the MP5240A-DP DVD+RW/+R writer combining high read- and write- speed, ease of use and the highest level of compatibility with DVD players and DVD ROM drives.
The MP5240A-DP writes DVD+RW and DVD+R at 4x speed - the new generation standard from Ricoh - and CD-R/RW standard.
The DVD+RW video recording format DVD+VR allows inserting, processing and deleting of video data on a blank DVD while retaining compatibility. These unique advantages of DVD+RW/+R are based on ‘Lossless Linking’ Technology, which enables data to be written with exact precision.
Offering short write times with a 4x write speed with DVD+RW and DVD+R – equivalent to around a 36x write speed with CD-R/RW – Ricoh claim the drive will write 4 GB of data to a DVD+RW/+R disc in just under 12 minutes. While CD functions include 24x write CD-R, 10x rewrite CD-RW and 40x read CD.
Offering excellent compatibility with DVD players and DVD ROM drives, DVD-ROMs and self-recorded DVD videos can be played on almost all existing DVD players and DVD ROM drives. Also when inserting data on DVD+RW with the unique DVD+VR video format, video clips can be easily added, altered or deleted to DVD+RW whilst retaining compatibility.
Intelligent background formatting reduces the format time required to write a DVD+RW.
The package includes NeoDVD™ 4.5 standard software from MedioStream, which allows the simple creation of DVD-Videos. Write software ‘Track to Disk™’ from Roxio is included and software supports the next DVD-Recording-Generation DVD+MRW and CD-MRW. WinOnCD 6.0® from Roxio is included for the creation and writing of DVD-ROMs in different CD-ROM formats.
The Ricoh MP5240A-DP will accommodate the Mt. Rainier DVD+MRW and CD-MRW standards when these are adopted.
