The Council's membership has grown from 58 to 87 companies since the RDVDC
was established a year ago, making it the largest recordable DVD industry alliance among similar kinds of promotional groups.
The compatibility tests have been conducted with the participation of member companies from both the RWPPI Round Robin Test and the RDVDC
Compatibility Working Group.
Consumers are embracing recordable DVD products promoted by RDVDC
as the preference for the future.
With a growing number of companies manufacturing recordable DVD products, the RDVDC
established the Compatibility Working Group to support newcomers to this market.
Among these moves, the RDVDC
has created a new "RAM Compatible" logo to designate products capable of recording and playing back -- or just playing back -- video images on DVD-RAM discs in the Video Recording Format*.
