New to the forum, first post, I hope it works out:
I have an idea for an incremental innovation I believe improves the DVD/BR player and burner offerings within the market place but I’m not an electronic engineer - I write software.
Are there any engineers here familiar with cd/dvd/br player and/or recorder design and development? More specifically with the intregration of disc head controlling ICs such as NEC’s SCOMBOÂ®8 (MC-10045) and also the technical ins and outs of actually getting a disc head to write the various CD, DVD and BR book formats?
Anyone here actually work for NEC or Sony (or any DVD/BR chipset companies)?
My idea is incremental in nature and would require modest modifications to existing ICs that control the behaviour of a disc player’s/recorder’s laser system. Clever engineers could probably help me take apart a few retail players/recorders and knock together a rough prototype. I’ve studied electronics at 16-19 school but my strengths are software.
Any takers willing to at least talk about this?
thanks for reading, much appreciated.
