    Pioneer Corporation also announced today that the company's first internal BD/DVD writer with ATAPI connection for Windows PCs has recently been developed. The new Pioneer BDR-101A features the latest specifications for the BD-R (Blu-ray Disc recordable), BD-RE (Blu-ray Disc rewritable), and the BD-ROM (Blu-ray Disc read-only memory). This means that single-layer BD-R and BD-RE discs can store up to 25 gigabytes of data(Double-layer BD-R/BD-RE discs can store up to 50 gigabytes of data), which is about five times more than a conventional DVD disc, supporting a high-speed data transfer rate of a maximum of 72Mbps (2x) for both reading and writing. It is possible to record over two hours of a high-definition (HD) video on a single disc. This level of storage capacity and transfer speed is expected to make possible a wide range of applications, such as server data backup, films, music, and games, which are expected to be released in the future. The new Pioneer BDR-101A writer will use company technology Ultra Dynamic Resonance Absorber and the Multi-Effect Liquid Crystal Tilt Compensator. Pioneer will show its new writer at the 2006 International CES, January 5, 2006, in Las Vegas, USA and it's expected to start shipping at the end of January, 2006.
