Pioneer and Sony are currently the only two Japanese brands completely relying on self-production for their DVD burners
I suppose they must consider LiteOn to be part of the Sony concern if they're making this statement. Maybe Pioneer will buy up BTC (just to name something weird) and continue "self-production". Has NEC outsourced their DVD-production?
