Yamaha Announces 16X Recorder

November 2, 2020 | Yamaha Corporation of America has announced its LightSpeed CRW2100 Series of CD-R/RW recorders. The drives feature 16X write, 10X rewrite, and 40X max read speeds. The CRW2100 Series makes use of partial Constant Angular Velocity (CAV) technology, which is a combination of CAV and Constant Linear Velocity (CLV) technologies. For rewriting CD-RWs, the drives utilize the full CAV method, which writes at variable speeds over the course of the disc, reaching 10X as the write head approaches the outer edge. The CRW2100 series applies Yamaha?s PurePhase Laser system, which compensates for glare during recording and helps to reduce jitter. The drives also feature Yamaha?s Optimum Write Speed Control, which checks a disc?s capability and the recording condition, and then selects the optimum writing speed, and its Waste-Proof Write Strategy for preventing buffer underruns. Always ahead of the curve in buffer size, Yamaha will include an 8MB data buffer in its CRW2100 series. The CRW2100 series will feature four models: the internal CRW2100EZ (ATAPI), which was scheduled for release in late October 2000; the internal CRW2100SZ (Ultra SCSI), also schedule for a late October release; the external CRW2100SXZ (Ultra SCSI), which was slated to debut in late November 2000; and the external CRW2100FXZ (FireWire), with availability set for early December 2000. Yamaha also announced plans to introduce 74 and 80-minute 16X CD-R media in October 2000. The drives are bundled with Adaptec?s Easy CD Creator, Direct CD, and Toast, Adobe?s ActiveShare, Photo Deluxe, and the Neato CD Labeling Kit.
