NEC ND-2510A 8X4X2X8X4X32X16X Dual Layer DVD±R / DVD±RW /
 CD-R / CD-RW / DVD-ROM Drive (ND2510A)


NEC (UK) Ltd today announced the launch of the ND2510A, an advanced double layer 8x DVD re-writer. The new model incorporates NEC’s leading optical storage technology to offer a high capacity, reliable device, ideal for digital video recording, storage and PC data back-up applications.

The ND2510A delivers high-speed write and re-write functions, and is one of the UK’s first dual format drives to support DVD +R9, the new double layer standard. This allows users the flexibility to choose a wider range of DVD R media without compromising performance or storage capacity.

In addition to improved ease-of use, the ND2510A will deliver significantly improved performance, ensuring users need no longer compromise on quality of video and stills due to lack of space on the disc. It also offers significantly faster recording speeds, for example a 1 hour DVD can be recorded in less than 10 minutes.

The ND-2510A incorporates NEC’s ‘high resolution writing strategy’ and ‘Active Optimized Power Control’ (Active OPC) to enhance the quality of written data. Active OPC dynamically monitors writing power and reflection of the media in use, calculating the optimum laser power and adjusting it in real-time, to overcome issues such as fingerprints on a disc.
