|Las Vegas, NV (Jan 6, 2005) - BenQ today announced its new EW162U DVD Re-writer that offers two of the fastest data transfer interfaces, USB 2.0 and Serial ATA. Serial ATA provides data transfer rates that are 2.5 times faster than USB 2.0. In addition to fast transfer rates, the EW162U provides state-of-the-art writing quality through BenQ’s proprietary Write Right Technology, which includes Walking Optimal Power Control II (WOPC II), BLER OPC (Block-Error-Rate Optimal Power Control) and a tilt control mechanism for uniform writing.|
Bundled with the popular Nero 6 Ultra Edition for burning DVDs, the EW162U offers a full range of solutions to satisfy the most demanding digital media needs. Nero 6 is an all-in-one digital media solution that enables users to capture, edit, author and burn photos and home videos, as well as recode DVD files onto CDs.
Equipped with BenQ’s proprietary QVideo 2.0 software, recording content from TV, digital video (DV) and audio/visual (AV) sources is straightforward and hassle-free. Media is written with the highest quality and at the highest speeds possible. Also included, BenQ’s QScan is an easy-to-use media-scanning tool that provides information on optimal over-speed burning quality of blank media before burning.
To alleviate worries over backward compatibility with older model DVD players, the EW162U features a Book Type Management utility that gives users the option to choose among DVD+RW/+R/+R DL discs to be written as a DVD-ROM book type, the most recognized disc format.
The EW162U is currently available worldwide with an estimated street price of $199.
