Lite-On Announces Speedy New DVD Drives

Lite-On Announces New Internal DVD Writers with 24X DVD Writing Speeds

New drives offer 24X DVD writing speeds and unique LabelTag and SmartErase features for data erasing and labeling

Fremont, CA - February 9, 2009 – Lite-On, a global leader of optical storage solutions, today announces a new line of internal DVD writers that deliver a maximum write speed of 24X on select DVD media, the fastest in the market. Select drives will also include Lite-On’s own LabelTag and SmartErase technologies – unique labeling and data erasing features for DVDs and CDs.

Compared to similar devices in the market today, Lite-On’s new internal writers offer the fastest DVD recording available with its DVD writing speeds of 24X. All drives will include new Lite-On technologies designed for true power users who are concerned with more than just writing speeds. Lite-On’s SmartErase technology will be included in all drive versions, and the iHAS624, available in Mid-May, will also feature LabelTag – a new solution in disc labeling.

“PLDS [Philips & Lite-On Digital Solutions] is proud to manufacture the fastest 24X writers in the market, especially with included technologies such as LabelTag,” said Christine Hsing, Marketing Manager at PLDS. “LabelTag provides a cost-effective and flexible method for professional disc labeling, a great solution for today’s busy professional and people on-the-go.” 

LabelTag is a patented new feature that allows users to create a label ring on the data side of any standard recordable media – no special media required. Users are still able to add data after the making a label, making burning your label is just as easy as burning your data. 

SmartErase, which is included in all new 24X DVD writers, provides users with a permanent solution for erasing discs with confidential data. With SmartErase, users can be sure that private and sensitive data is securely erased and cannot be recaptured.

These new DVD writers will be available in the following versions:

  • iHAS324 - 24X SATA with SmartErase; available in Mid-March
  • iHAP424 - 24X PATA with SmartErase and LightScribe;  available end of March
  • iHAS624 - 24X SATA with SmartErase, LightScribe and LabelTag; available in Mid-May
