LaCie and Roxio join forces to offer DVD DL solution

Roxio and LaCie have announced the first comprehensive double layer burning solution for the Mac platform. Effective immediately, Roxio's award winning software, Toast 6 Titanium, will begin shipping with LaCie's new DL DVD±RW drive.

The LaCie DL DVD±RW drive combined with the new DVD+R Double Layer capabilities of Toast 6 Titanium will enable Mac users to burn nearly twice the amount of personal data (from 4.7GB to 8.5GB), or record more than three hours of MPEG-2 (DVD-quality) video content on a single DVD +R DL disc. In addition to double layer recording capabilities, the new drive will support both DVD-RW and DVD+RW formats at 4x speed, as well as CD-R and CD-RW formats.

With the LaCie DL DVD±RW drive and Toast 6 Titanium, Macintosh video professionals will have the power and flexibility to create full-length productions without using complicated and expensive DLT (digital linear tape).

The LaCie DL DVD±RW Drive bundled with Toast 6 Titanium will be available in June 2004 through authorized resellers, specialty stores and mail order partners they have yet to confirm a price.
