Sony Electronics unveiled its first internal Blu-ray Disc(TM) (BD) rewritable drive for the computer aftermarket. The new drive(model BWU-100A) supports up to 50 GB of data on BD-R (write once) or BD-RE (rewritable) discs or up to 4 hours of high-definition video using HDV 1080i on a BD-RE 50GB disc. The new drive is capable of burning a full 25GB disc in about 50 minutes.

For personal content captured on a HDV camcorder, the BD drive is optimized for keeping the video in the native HDV 1080i for playback on home players compatible with BD-AV format and PCs with BD drives installed. Sony's BD drive also supports recording of standard single layer 4.7GB DVD+R/+RW/RAM discs, 8.5GB DVD+R Double/Dual Layer Discs and CDs, making it a multi-format burner.

The BWU-100A drive comes with the CyberLink BD Solution(R) from Cyberlink Corporation, which provides a complete software application for capturing, authoring, editing, and burning high-definition personal content captured by a HDV 1080i format camcorder onto BD discs. Video can also be "down-converted" to standard-definition resolution for burning onto DVDs. The internal drive features an IDE (ATA/ATAPI) interface and standard 5.25-inch form factor for easy installation inside a PC. The recordable/rewritable drive will be available in August for about U.S. $750.
