Yamaha introduces painting CD burner
The announced new Laser Control Systems for CD-R/RW devices can record characters and images on a CD-R that are visible on the surface of a CD. Yamaha uses the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) technology in all of their CD-R/RW devices, as this technology is considered to be the only one that Yamaha can use for high-speed recording.
This CAV technology allows to keep the rotational speed of the CD-R constant while the laser is continuously corrected in order to achieve an optimum of speed and quality of the recording. Yamaha is able to control the power of the laser and the speed of the CD-R so precisely that it is possible to capture characters and entire images on a CD. This possibility allows the date and time, information, tables of contents or the like to be displayed on the CD in the unused area of the CD. Yamaha now wants to present this new technology to the general public at CeBIT in Hanover.
