  • LightScribe Technology
    Create Silkscreen-quality Labels for all your CDs and DVDs, Right From your Computer.

  • Blu Ray Disc Information

  • Blu Ray Disc - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Blue Highways - All signs point to a hi-def future as long as we're still delivering content on shiny discs, we'll need a DVD-or worthy successor-that can handle hi-def content. Two blue laser-based formats, Blu-ray and HD-DVD, suggest different, equally likely roads to the same destination. Both have powerful backing, with NEC, Sanyo, and Toshiba on the HD-DVD side and Sony, Philips, and Pioneer on the Blu-ray side. Many questions remain: How do the formats differ? Which one will win out? And who will decide?

  • DVD+R Double Layer (DL) FAQ
    Imagine being able to record 4 hours instead of 2 hours of the highest quality DVD video on a disc. Or to store 8.5 gigabytes, equaling about 12 fully recorded CD-Rs, instead of 4.7 gigabytes, on a single sided DVD. All this is possible, here and now, with the advent of DVD+R Double Layer recording technology. Based on the proven double layer technology that has been used in DVD-Video for many years, DVD+R DL almost doubles the recording capacity when compared to traditional DVD recording media. And because the disc is single sided, there’s no need to flip it over halfway through playback or recording.

  • Understanding Dual Layer DVD Recording
    Dual layer DVD technology is not new. Commonly called “DVD9,” Hollywood has been churning out major motion pictures on stamped dual layer DVD Discs for years. How else could they include the full length movie plus all the bonus materials commonly found on today’s DVDs? Because dual layer technology has always been part of the DVD specifications, dual layer DVD Recording on the desktop is the natural progression of single layer 4.7GB recordable technology.

    You are probably already aware that a standard DVD can store up to 4.7GB of data; which is 7 times as much as a normal CD. Due to this storage capacity, DVDs are able to store high quality video (MPEG-2) and audio contents. For the most part of the 90's, DVD movie production was something attainable only by professional movie production studios and was kept out of reach of the average person.

  • Understanding PC Hardware Requirements for Video Editing
    The Personal Computer has come along way since its inception and is now a central component in many household's across the globe.

    Confused about DVD authoring and how to easily burn a DVD of your favorite home videos or client videos? The hardware and software for DVD authoring and DVD burning can now be purchased for as little as a few hundred dollars, but in some respects the process of successful DVD burning can seem as mysterious as it did in 2000 when a low-end DVD authoring system would have added perhaps $20,000 to the price of your computer.

  • DivX - The Present and Future
    DivX technology was first introduced to the public about 3 years ago, and at that time the technology was designed for the video especially for video enthusiasts. Aside from the "average" video quality, users were generally not very impressed with DivX technology, because it consumed a lot of computer processing power and the format was not supported by the majority of home entertainment devices. Yet more recently this situation has started to change.

  • DVD Backup Made Easy
    If you are running backups on a regular basis, you have probably come across the problem that CDRs or CDRWs are simply to small for some backups. While you could split your backups to multiple CDs, this is not a very good solution if you have to backup 10GBs of data.

Imagine…people would actually record television broadcasts!
