BenQ showed off BW1000 Blu-ray burner

Posted on Monday, June 06 2005 @ 18:08:13 CEST by

BenQ presented a prototype of its BW1000 Blu-ray DVD burner at Computex 2005 last week. The BW1000 will feature writing speeds of 2x for Blu-ray single-layer and DL (single-sided double-layer) discs, 12x for DVD+R/-R, 4x for DVD+R/-R DL, 4x for DVD+RW/-RW, 32x for CD-R and 24x for CD-RW, as well as reading speeds of 2x for Blu-ray, 12x for DVD and 32x for CD.

Blu-ray discs with a single layer will feature a storage capacity of 25GB while double-layer discs will be able to store 50GB. BenQ said the BW1000 will target high-density applications such as HDTV recording and playback.

The company said mass production of its BW1000 is planned for the first or second quarter of 2006, depending on the market evolution of Blu-ray products.

BenQ also presented the DQ60 and DW1640. The DQ60 will be launched by the end of the month and will be the company's first three-format (+R, -R and -RAM) drive. It will also feature drag-and-drop data recording which will make burning software obsolete.

Mass production of the DW1640 began in March, but the company said it has added -R DL writing functionality to the model that was presented at Computex.
