The Vivastar DVD Recorder, which ships to retailers May 2001, offers features that meet or exceed any unit on the market today. The write-once drive connects to any PC via a SCSI-2 interface, and writes to 4.7 GB DVD-R discs at both 1X and 2X speeds.
Recording standards for the Vivastar DVD Recorder conform to those set by the DVD Forum, a worldwide consortium of DVD manufacturers and technologists.
Vivastar plans to follow the release of its external and internal drive DVD Recorder with a series of related models later this year. The series will include a video/audio model which will connect to TVs, enabling users to time- shift television programs and transfer favorite home videos to the highly- stable DVD format.
