Pioneer Introduces New Qflix-Enabled Drives


NOVATO, Calif., Oct. 22 -- Sonic Solutions(R) the leader in digital media software, today announced that Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. has introduced two DVD/CD computer writers featuring Sonic's Qflix(TM) technology. The new Pioneer(R) internal DVR-2920Q and external DVR-X162Q DVD/CD writers will enable consumers to download and burn DVDs of their favorite Hollywood movies from CinemaNow for playback on standard and high-definition DVD players. The writers will be available at major retailers and direct from Pioneer at

Pioneer becomes the latest major manufacturer to introduce Qflix-enabled drives. Last month, Dell announced the availability of a Qflix drive bundle, which is an option on most Inspiron, Studio and XPS laptops and sold through Dell's Entertainment, Software and Accessories online store.

"Our new line of Pioneer computer DVD burners featuring Qflix technology gives movie fans a seamless way to download and own their favorite Hollywood hits for viewing beyond the PC to DVD players throughout the house," said Steven Cohn, director of optical sales for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "With more and more Hollywood hits, television shows and independent movies becoming available in the near future, our burners will also provide consumers a convenient method to expand their disc libraries without the long search time and footwork."

The new Pioneer writers provide a means for home audiences to download and preserve content to DVD for playback on all standard and high-definition players. The result is a richer viewing experience that transcends current digital delivery entertainment options.

"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Pioneer to bring Qflix-enabled products to market," said Mark Ely, executive vice president of Strategy, Sonic Solutions. "Support from major manufactures like Pioneer will help to further establish Qflix as the symbol for consumers looking for compatible and convenient 'purchase, download, and burn' solutions."

To streamline the user experience, both Pioneer drives incorporate Roxio(R) Venue(TM) software that provides simplified management and writing of downloaded digital content. Also included in the software bundle are applications that allow users to back-up and play their disc media on a PC via the Roxio CinePlayer(R) and Easy CD & DVD Burning software.

About Qflix

The Qflix(TM) program offers a new means for content owners to release titles for custom production and sale over the Internet while maintaining the same level of copy protection used on commercially mass-produced DVDs. The program provides essential technology and IP for both the professional and consumer market. For professional and enterprise manufacturing of DVDs "on demand," the Qflix program allows production facilities to reduce the cost of carrying physical inventory while simultaneously offering extensive catalogs of content. The program also enables retailers to broaden the number of movies by augmenting physical product with on-demand DVD creation kiosks in their stores. For consumers, the Qflix program provides a long-awaited downloading and burning solution for movies and premium video content in computers and consumer electronic devices such as set-top boxes, networked DVD recorders, and DVRs.
