18X Pioneer DVD Drive DVR-112 DVR-112D
DVD writers keep getting faster in speed, today Pioneer announced two new internal 18X DVD burners. The DVR-112 and DVR-112D.
The 112 is a multi-format drive and the 112D is a dual-format drive. The Pioneer drives burn at an amazing 18X speed for write once media and 10X for dual-layer media. So how does Pioneer do it, well they've adopted the CAV recording technology along with Pioneers proprietary technology to ensure a disc has been properly recorded. In addition, Pioneer kept it's Disc-Resonance Stabilizer technology which controls the airflow generated by disc-rotation in order to minimize disc warping that can occur when media rotates at high speed.
Pioneer also incorporated the following technologies in their DVR-112 and DVR-112D series drives:
- Buffer Under Run protection technology
- A Multi-Effect Liquid Crystal Tilt Compensator; it operates at high-speed - even on Dual Layer/Double Layer media types - to ensure precise writing to the disc by automatically compensating for discs that are warped or of uneven thickness.
- An Ultra Dynamic Resonance Absorber; this reduces the instability and vibrations caused by imbalanced or damaged media, maintaining the integrity of the recording and playback performance.
- Performance Adjusting Firmware; this optimizes the disc's rotation speed depending on the user's application for example, if watching a movie or listening to music, the disc velocity is reduced keeping background noise to a minimum.
