$600 for the Sony BWU-200S Blu-ray Disc Writer

Sony BWU-200S Blu-ray Disc Writer

The second generation of Sony’s Blu-ray Disc (BD) writers are set to come out in November with a price tag of $600. It sounds a lot and most photographers may not need it, but videographers and HD content producers will surely want one.

The Sony BWU-200S boasts 4X BD-R and 16X DVD+R recording speeds. It can fill up a 50GB Blu-ray disc in 45 minutes, twice the speed of the first generation BD writers.

The drive comes with CyberLink BD Solution software that provides a comprehensive application for capturing, authoring, editing, burning and viewing high-definition personal content captured in the native HDV 1080i format from an HDV camcorder. In addition, the software supports recording on DVDs and CDs, as well as playback of DVDs recorded in the AVCHD format.
