Digital equipment vendor LG Electronics has chosen GITEX 2006 at which to launch its first line of Blu-ray-based PC storage products. The arrival of its new massive capacity Super Multi drive puts LG in pole position when it comes to next-generation desktop storage, according to the president of LG Electronics Gulf FZE, C. H. Lee: “With this launchLG has become the leader in next-generation DVD technology by developing new audio-visual and storage products based on the Blu-ray storage format. “LG has led the international market in light storage for eight years and plans to strengthen its brand power in the DVD market with this technology,” he adds. LG’s internal Blu-ray DVD writer, the Super Multi Blue GBW-H10N, has been designed to seriously boost a PC’s storage capacity as it can store a massive 25Gbytes of data on a single disc. Performance-wise the new burner is no slouch either as it can write to Blu-ray recordable discs at four times (4x) the normal speed and Blu-ray re-writable discs at twice (2x) the normal speed. The Super Multi is compatible with Blu-ray discs of all sizes and is also backwards compatible with standard CDs and DVDs. The term ‘Blu-ray’ is derived from the blue-violet laser the technology uses to read and write data to the chalcogenide disc.
