The Recordable DVD Council (RDVDC), a coalition of nearly 95 DVD technology developers and manufacturers, has provided an update on the DVD Forum's DVD Multi specification, emphasizing that the new recordable DVD drives preserve the investments made in DVD Forum-compliant DVD players and drives that were purchased before the spec was established.

DVD Multi puts an end to the compatibility issues by ensuring support for all formats developed by the DVD Forum (www.dvdforum.org), an industry association that includes all of the major DVD manufacturers and leading DVD software developers/media producers worldwide. The DVD Multi spec covers all of the current formats that have been approved by DVD Forum, including DVD-Video, DVD-ROM, DVD-Audio, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-Video recording. Formats created outside the DVD Forum are not covered.

According to Tony Jasionowski, RDVDC North American program director, "DVD Multi ensures disc compatibility and cross-device support without making the original recordable DVD formats obsolete. Several members of the RDVDC have announced that they will be shipping DVD Multi drives in volume before mid-year. With the new drives, users have a single DVD/CD storage solution that provides the broadest compatibility and security of write-once, the flexibility of rewritable, backward-compatibility, cross-device compatibility and a growth path to the future."
