BANGALORE, INDIA: Lite-On announced its 12X Blu-ray Disc (BD) writer, the iHBS212. Featuring write speeds of up to 12X, which is currently the fastest available write speed in the market, the iHBS212 lets you record a maximum of 50 GB of data on a double layer disc at an unprecedented 12x.
Designed using a short-loader mechanism for better airflow, the iHBS212 is well-suited for today’s mini desktop PCs, also making the drive a superb match for your home theater PC. Utilizing Blu-ray disc capacity, the drive easily allows you to record videos, pictures, or data files onto a 50GB double layer BD-R disc or 25GB single layer BD-R disc.
The iHBS212 is a feature-rich BD writer equipped with Lite-On’s own patented SmartWrite and SmartX technology. SmartWrite can set the optimum speed of operation, enabling users to “burn and work”, running other applications while making a BD, DVD or CD with a minimum risk of failed burns, or creating “coasters”. SmartX can automatically adjust data extraction speed, such as decreasing the reading speed to reduce acoustic noise and anti-vibration, and provides smooth and quiet playback.
The BD writer is capable of recording and playing back today’s most popular media formats including Blu-ray, DVD, and CD. It has a write speed of up to 12X on a BD-R SL, 8X on BD-R DL, and read speeds of 8X on BD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE SL, 6X on BD-RE DL media, and supports DVD±R media at 16X.
The iHBS212 incorporates Serial ATA interface for better performance and versatility. It features PowerDVD and LightScribe direct disc labeling technology, which allows you to burn a label on the CD or DVD without any marker or paper labels. Simply burn data on the LightScrible disc, flip the disc over, and reinsert it into the drive and burn label.
