  • DVS Korea Develops 6.2x DVD-ROM Drive
  • January 28, 1999 (SEOUL) -- DVS Korea said it developed the world's fastest DVD-ROM drive, which operates at 6.2 times standard reading speed.
    DVS Korea is the Korean arm of Digital Video Systems Inc. of Los Gatos, Calif.

    "Our 6.2X DVD-ROM drive performs as fast as a 32x CD-ROM drive, which is able to read data at a speed of 120 milliseconds," a company official said.

    DVS Korea announced last October that it developed 5.2x drives. It started mass production on them recently.

    U.S.-based DVS, which specializes in DVD-ROM products, set up its Korean subsidiary in June 1998 after taking over the DVD-ROM division of Hyundai Electronics Industries Co., Ltd. early last year.
