Pioneer Corp. announced that it has made available the world's first DVD writers capable of recording at up to 16x write speed on DVD-R or +R discs and at up to 4x write speed on DVD+R DL (double-layer) discs.

The company said that the new DVD writers realize not only the industry-leading write speeds on DVD-R discs, DVD+R DL discs and +R discs, but also provides high-quality recording and high reliability with quiet operation owing to Pioneer-developed eminent technologies.

The devices are playback compatible in all DVD formats, supporting the playback of DVD-RAM, DVD-R, +R and DVD+R DL discs, and are designed for vertical or horizontal mounting. It can also be installed in a slim-type PC.

Bundled software for the DVR-A08 include MyDVD, RecordNow, DLA, Simple Backup and CinePlayer by Sonic Solutions, as well as a DVD handbook in PDF format, which explains how to use the bundled software, and a performance adjusting utility that allows users to manually select the disc rotation mode from three modes (Quite, Performance and Standard) to change the read speed (disc rotation).

The DVR-A08-J (pure white), DVR-A08-J-BK (black) and DVR-A08-J-SV (silver) writers will be available in Japan later this month.
