Sony to launch DVD-RW drives in U.S. in autumn
TOKYO, May 31 (Reuters) - Sony Corp said on Monday it would begin marketing digital video disk re-writable (DVD-RW) drives for personal computers in the United States this autumn.

The new drive allows PC users to read and write in DVD-RW disks with a data storage capacity of 3.0 gigabytes.

Sony plans to manufacture 10,000 to 20,000 units of the drives per month at a domestic plant ahead of the scheduled U.S. launch in the second half of 1999, a company spokesman said.

The company has not yet set a date for the introduction of the drives in Japan, he said.

DVD-RW is based on the CD-ReWritable technology.

Sony and Philips Electronics NV have been working to promote DVD-RW as an alternative to the DVD-RAM (random access memory) format promoted by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co Ltd and Toshiba Corp.
