LaCie Introduces Fully Portable LightScribe DVD Burner


July 12, 2005

LaCie today introduces a fully portable LightScribe-enabled DVD solution, merging its slimmest 8.5GB double layer DVD burner with innovative LightScribe disc labeling technology. LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive with LightScribe Design by F.A. Porsche is available immediately with fast 8x DVD±RW burning speed and USB 2.0 interface for use on any PC.

LightScribe allows users to burn silkscreen-quality labels directly onto CDs and DVDs without the need for a printer or ink accessories. Using the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive with LightScribe and specially coated LightScribe discs, consumers and businesses can create personalized, precise, professional-looking labels composed of art, text, or photos. Disc art can even be saved and used again for future projects. LightScribe-enabled CDs and DVDs are available direct from LaCie or in most retail and online stores.

“LaCie is recognized in the optical industry for bringing advanced optical technology to PC and Mac users, and the LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive delivers the benefits of LightScribe technology to mobile computer users with power and style,” says Kent Henscheid, LightScribe Marketing Manager.

“This ultralight and mobile LightScribe disc-burning solution makes it easy for people to create customized CDs and DVDs anywhere—whether traveling on business or vacationing with family,” says Salem Tirane, LaCie Product Manager. “It’s a perfect combination of LaCie’s mobile yet powerful DVD burners and innovative new LightScribe technology.”

LaCie Slim DVD±RW Drive with LightScribe burns 8.5GB double layer DVDs in just under 10 minutes.* Double layer DVDs store up to 16 hours of VHS video, 4 hours of personal, high-quality DVD video or up to 8.5GB of data. Large-capacity, double layer DVD media is also ideal for backing up computer systems or saving thousands of MP3s.
