DVS Korea ships first DVD+RW loader under $ 4.5 million contract
Digital Video Systems, Inc. today announced that DVS Korea (DVSK) began shipping its
Model DRL 100 DVD+RW (rewritable) loader product, the primary component for DVD+RW recorder/players. The first shipments are part of a US $ 4.5 million purchase order from Ellion Digital Inc., a supplier of DVD+RW players to Hyundai Corporation, and it is scheduled to be fully shipped by the end ofDecember.
“The new DVD+RW loader is leading the charge as the first in a wave of new product releases that will boost the technology content of DVS Korea’s product portfolio and hopefully also boost margins,” said DVS CEO, Douglas T. Watson. “Dr. Song Sim, the new CEO and President of DVSK, led the R&D team that designed the +RW loader. My bet is that customers will figure out fast that our loader is the most robust, has one of the quickest access times and is competitively priced. This is a great product and I believe we are in the game early enough to do well with it.”
Watson continued: “As consumers all over the world continue to demand higher quality images and ever-greater flexibility, the market is ripe for DVS to capitalize on its investment in digital video technologies by launching new DVD products that are either not yet commoditized and/or are harder to ‘knock off’ because we have patents or aren’t disclosing our proprietary IP.”
DVSK’s new DRL-100 Recordable
ATAPI DVD+RW loader incorporates proprietary DVS technology and is designed to
