SAMSUNG Introduces COMBO 16X H/H INTERNAL DRIVE SM-316

(Hanover, March 22-28, 2001) - Samsung Electronics is displaying its SM-316, COMBO H/H internal drive, at CeBIT 2001 being held from March 22 to March 28. The SM-316 is a new concept optical disc drive that combines a CD-rewritable and DVD-ROM drives in one mechanism. The new product offers the entertainment of DVD-ROM with the high resolution and high quality sound and storage capabilities of reading, recording, and rewriting media.

The SM-316 uses Samsung's exclusive annular mask lens pick-ups. Two laser diodes in a single-lens pickup module process the CD-R/RW and DVD-ROM functions. The annular mask lens pick-ups are both less expensive and smaller.

The SM-316 writing quality was improved by adopting Dynamic Write Strategy and Running Optimum Power Control technologies.

The product is compatible with all currently available optical disc drive media-- CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-Video, and DVD R. Samsung has adopted a technology to prevent buffer under-run errors while the buffer memory of the source device is empty.
Samsung will launch the SM-316 worldwide in the third quarter of 2001.
