PLEXTOR INTRODUCES NEW DVD/CD WRITER WITH PLEXTV
A NEW FEATURE ENABLES TV COMPATIBILITY
Fremont, CA, January 12, 2012—Plextor LLC (www.goplextor.com) leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media and storage equipment, announces the release of its latest External Slim DVD/CD Writer, PX-612U, with PlexTV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas today.
PlexTV is a new feature enabling Plextor’s DVD/CD drive to work with televisions, media player and other USB-enabled devices. With PlextTV, user can connect the PX-612U with a TV or any USB enabled devices, insert the disc and view the contents of the inserted disc. PlexTV will be available exclusively with the PX-612U during the first quarter of 2012.
Currently, HDTVs are compatible with a wide variety of devices via USB connection, including hard drives, cameras, and flash drives, but do not support optical disk drives built for computers. With PlexTV, users can enables the use of Plextor’s PX-612U drives on these previously unsupported devices by translating signal output to mimic a hard drive.
“It seems counter-intuitive that a USB-supported DVD Drive wouldn’t work with a TV, but it has to do with the code that the devices use to communicate. PlexTV uses a code translator to make the PX-612U appear as a hard drive to the television, making the two devices compatible.,” explains Kathy Huynh, Product Marketing Manager.
