DVD Recordable Technologies:
DVD Technologies still exist in a format
war. Pioneer's DVD-A04 was seemingly the unit of choice for Digital
Videographers or for those creating DVD-Audio
CD's. And for Data, appeared HP's DVD 200i had that lead for a while. Now
HP has the 300i. So what's a PC Digital Editor to do? Lots of homework,
some perseverance and dedicate some time to research! Below are a few
places worth your time. For a Total Solution, we suggest a Solutions
Provider Bundle unless you prefer to create your own total solution.
Since Sony has announced their next
generation DVD Recorders (DRU-500A) will embrace both DVD-R &
DVD+R, we suggest waiting until those DVD Recorders ship to see what else
might be available. IF however you cannot wait, we suggest the Pioneer DVR-A05U
unit since it appears to be faster (9/24/2002, Updated 2/8/2003).
