SH-B022A, Samsungs DVD of the future (News by Nikko)

Samsung Electronics announed the release of an internal (SH-B022A) and external (SE-B026A) Blu-Ray burner for April 2006. These 2 innovating drives allow you to store up to 50GB onto a dual layer disc. These 3-in-1 drives (BD, DVD, CD) offer HD video burning and reading at a 2x speed (9MB/s).

 

 

Samsung in the Blu-ray era

At the moment when HD TV and digital braodcasting services are booming and the demand for HD broadcasts is rising, the advantages of Blu-Ray drives are noticeable for consumers and translate themselves into high storage capacities for high definition videos in an unrivaled quality.

 

Samsung Electronics, leader on the optical drives market, is ready to head the technological evolution with the commercial release of 2 Blu-Ray drives: the internal SH-B022A and the external SE-B026A.

 

Samsung Blu-ray burners SH-B022A / SE-B026A

These innovating products offer an unseen storage capacity: 25GB on a single layer disc and 50GB on a dual layer disc. These triple-format drives can read and record on BD, DVD and CD. They offer a 2x speed for BD, 12x for DVD and 40x (for the internal SH-B022A) or 32x (for the external SE-B026A) for CD.

 

The pures lines of the external drive makes the Samsung stand out from the crowd, and its elegance satisfies the needs of those customers that find design a determining factor in the purchasing process. The front cover of the internal drive is available in black and silver and looks rather sophisticated too.

 

A direct firmware upgrade function will give the users an always up-to-date device.

 

The Blu-Ray Technology

Superior performace

The blue-violet laser technique offers a capacity of 50GB on a BD (Blu-Ray Disc) and it is the successor of the DVD. today's DVD drives use a red laser (650nm) to read and record data, and the BD uses a blue laser with a shorter wavelength (405nm). By using this technique, it is more precise and can read informations in 0.16 micron long entities, twice as small as the ones used on a DVD. By storing the information in such a way, it can store 25Gb on a single layer, almost 5 times the storage capacity of a normal DVD.

 

A solution for High Definition

The BD offers and exceptional storage capacity of 50GB on a dual layer disc and 25Gb on a single layer. A single layer disc can contain over 2 hours of high definition TV or more than 13 hours of conventional TV broadcasts. These discs are available in a dual layer and rewriteable format, the BD-RE. You will be able to watch HD BD-ROM's and record digital TV shows.

 

Compatibility

The Samsung Blu-Ray drives offer, on top of the HD recording on BD, reading and writing of conventional DVD's and CD's thanks to the two lenses and 3 laser diodes. This perfect compatibility renders the migration much more attractive to the users as they are not obliged to replace their DVD collection.

"The PURE lines . . ." It looks elegant, as if that's the factor which counts.

 

My clunky old DVD writer already has black, cream, and silver faceplates so THEY're not new, and it also has a firmware upgrade function so I don't know what's new about that.

 

Crafty little sods, though. Talking about BD-ROMS and BD-RE, they're trying to redefine all the terms you've come to know and love, just to prevent the purveyors of HD-DVD from using the same terms. And "HD BD-ROMs", now if that isn't calculated to confuse punters then I'll eat a CD label!

 

Boxers to your corners, and let the fight begin.

Heh heh.... for some folks, that is the thing that counts. If it works is secondary. I take the reverse approach. If it works, I could care less what it looks like (as proven by the truck I drive).

When you said 50 GB on a dual-layer disk, did you mean a standard DL DVD, or a new specialized type of disk? Still, 50 GB seems like an impossible amount. That's more than standard hard drives :)

Richard, read the article.

You're displaying a lack of clues if you part-read something and then ask questions which show you didn't read it properly if at all. I'm sure you don't want to seem clueless.

 

50 GB is the standard capacity of a DL Blu-Ray disk, which is what the article's about.

 

Standard hard drives run at 250-500 GB at the moment, so 40 and 80 GB drives are becoming rarer on the stock shelves.
