Default HD DVD recorders


Ritek lands orders for 2x HD DVD-R discs from Toshiba, says paper

EDN, September 3; Adam Hwang, DIGITIMES [Monday 3 September 2007]

Ritek, the second largest Taiwan-based producer of blank optical discs, has obtained OEM orders for blank 2x HD DVD-R (recordable, write once) discs from Toshiba, with shipments to begin in the third quarter of 2007, according to the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) newspaper.

Ritek confirmed receiving orders for HD DVD-R discs but declined to disclose any information due to a non-disclosure agreement, the EDN pointed out.

Toshiba will bundle its HD DVD recorders with five blank HD DVD-R discs produced by Ritek initially in Japan and then in the US and Europe during the peak sales period prior to the year-end holiday season, the EDN indicated.
Looks like we may see HD DVD Recorders by Christmas

If a couple of new HD DVD players weren't enough for you, Toshiba is also launching an ultrathin, highly portable HD DVD burner for playing back high-definition flicks and writing massive amounts of data to single or dual-layer HD DVD-Rs whilst on the go. The simply titled HD DVD-Writer is reportedly the brother of the HD DVD Super-Multi, which only supports CD, DVD+/-RW, and HD DVD-ROM. Both units supposedly measure in at just 5.04- x 4.96- x 0.51-inches and weigh 5.82 ounces, and best of all, they're said to be available right now across the pond for 200 ($403).
