Royal Philips Electronics announced that it is teaming up with BenQ, a DVD recorder engine manufacturer, to introduce a DVD-recorder monoboard solution targeted at consumer electronic OEMs. This collaboration is aimed at further driving down the costs for DVD video recorders.

Philips already possesses a portfolio of Nexperia DVD-recorder reference designs and recently introduced its highly integrated PNX7200 MPEG-2 codec, which uniquely handles all of the necessary MPEG-2 encoding, decoding and transcoding on a single-chip. This latest collaboration pairs BenQs DVD engines with Philips MPEG solutions onto a single board to advance the adoption of DVD video recorders into the high-volume market.
