Pioneer High Fidelity Taiwan Co.Ltd today unveiled its new internal BD/DVD/CD writer, the BDR-211EBK. The new model supports Ultra HD Blu-ray playback using bundled CyberLink PowerDVD®14 software.
The market for 4K resolution is expected to expand significantly as demand increases for definition higher than full HD. The BDR-211EBK meets that need, enabling PC users to enjoy 4K content via a PC, as well as providing up to 16x 2 maximum BD-R writing speed (BD-R: SL 25GB) and the ability to read and write a variety of BD (SL 25GB/DL 50GB) and BDXL (BD-R XL: TL 100GB/ QL 128GB, BD-RE XL: TL 100GB) discs.
– Ultra HD Blu-ray playback – the BDR-211EBK supports Ultra HD Blu-ray playback using the bundled CyberLink software. Ultra HD Blu-ray includes content up to 4K resolution (3840 pixels horizontal×2160pixels vertical) and a wider range of colours compared to full HD.
– Faster burning – Up to 16x² maximum write speed on BD-R single-layer discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs and 8x on BD-R triple-layer discs.
– Compatible with Windows® 10 – The BDR-211EBK and bundled software are compatible with the latest Windows® OS, Windows 10.
– Region Code Change – BDR-211EBK has DVD regional playback control. It allows users to set the region of the drive up to five times.
Store more data – Support for BDXL media, which stores up to 156% more data than 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc™, including 100GB Triple Layer (TL) and 128GB Quadruple Layer (QL) discs.
QuickPlay – BD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs are ready quickly after insertion.
PowerRead – Through its PowerRead feature, the BDR-211EBK provides smoother movie playback when a disc is marked with fingerprints or has minor surface scratches. When the drive is not able to read through these obstructed areas of a disc, it will quickly move forward to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback.
Auto Quiet Mode – The drive monitors how it is being used and will adjust its disc rotation speed automatically, using quieter mode (slower speed) when watching Blu-ray and DVD titles or listening to conventional audio CDs.
PureRead3+ – Clicking or popping sounds that might normally occur due to minor scratches and fingerprints on CDs can be prevented on some discs with the drive’s PureRead3+ technology, which allows the drive to adjust its optical playback settings dynamically through the use of a unique algorithm.
Peak power Reducer – This power saving mode enables the drive to suppress power consumption at peak operation. It keeps stable operation in case of a drop in power supply.
