Sony DVDirect Review
Sony's DVDirect knocked my socks off like no
product I've seen in years. Billed as a product that combines the capabilities of standalone and desktop DVD recorders, DVDirect's
best feature is its ability to record live video to DVD as you shoot it.

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.
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.
DVD Recorder FAQs
It is safe to

The TREND for DVD Recording Hardware
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

for the video especially for video enthusiasts. Aside from the

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
