LaCie Doubles Burn ray speed of Blu-ray BD-RE Drive

Engineered for professional video authoring houses, the LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive records, rewrites, and plays back high-definition (HD) video. Store up to four hours of HD video on a 50GB** disc?about 10 times as much as a DVD. Shoot HD videos from your camcorder, author the videos, and burn them without any quality loss using multiple video codecs (MPEG2, AVC, VC-1). Now you can store large amounts of valuable administrative documents, audio asset libraries, raw video shoots and multiple image files on a single disc with complete peace of mind. The LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive?s writing process ensures record authenticity and longevity on sturdy write-once discs with an enhanced scratch-resistant hard coating surface. It also offers a packet writing option. By choosing Blu-ray technology, you get safe storage with a low cost-per-gigabyte.

The exceptionally quiet LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive comes bundled with the newly revised Easy Media Creator 10 and Toast 9 Titanium software. The easy-to-use software lets Mac and Windows users master video and audio files onto Blu-ray, DVD and CD discs. With the tools customers can also schedule backups for data files, edit videos, create audio mixes and much more.

Plus, users can work with three popular codexes?MPEG2, AVC and VC-1?when creating their Blu-ray content. And the LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive supports a dozen Blu-ray, DVD and CD formats, including BD-ROM, BD-ROM AACS, BD-R, BD-RE, DVD?R, CD-R and others.
