Release Issued by Lite-On IT:
Lite-On IT adds LightScribe to 18x DVD-R(W) product line: LH-18A1HEindhoven, The Netherlands
– Besides the previously announced LH-18A1P, Lite-On IT has announced it will also launch a LightScribe version of this 18x drive, the LH-18A1H. The LH-18A1H is expected to be available from November 2006.
With the release of the LH-18A1H, Lite-On IT continues to increase its DVD burning speeds from 16x to 18x. With the addition of LightScribe the LH-18A1H offers a lot of versatile options to appeal to the most creative users. The drive writes DVD+R and DVD-R at 18X, thanks to SmartWrite™ technology. Double and Dual layer discs can be written at 8X. Besides DVD±R(W) compatibility, this drive also incorporates Super AllWrite™ technology and therefore rewrites DVD-RAM discs at 12X.
SmartWrite™ optimizes the writing strategy for each particular writing session. Through the drive’s self learning mechanism, it automatically detects and decides the optimal write strategy for DVD±R recordable media.
LightScribe is an innovative technology that uses a special disc drive, special media, and label-making software to burn labels directly onto the surface of a CD or DVD in a very easy way: BURN the data, FLIP the disc and BURN the label. Because the labels are laser-etched (not printed), there’s no ink, no smudging and no peeling.
