Verbatim Europe announces 1-16x DVD+R Media


Verbatim Europe Limited announced the release of 1-16X-speed DataLifePlus? DVD+R media. With the ability to record at about 21 MB/sec, the discs will take about five minutes to store 4.7GB of video, photos, music or data files.

Verbatim is working closely with the verification authorities and expects to begin manufacturing certified 1-16X DVD+R media shortly after specifications are released later this month. Sample 16X media has already been provided to five of the leading burner manufacturers that are tuning their drives to Verbatim?s high-performance media.

The key component in achieving 16X speed DVD+R media that delivers optimum performance, superior quality and the broadest compatibility is the discs? proprietary Advanced AZO+ recording layer technology developed by Verbatim's parent company, Mitsubishi? Kagaku Media (MKM). By using the proven dye technology - already incorporated into its 8X DVD+R media - as the platform for the new, more sensitive Advanced AZO technology, MKM engineers have not only achieved 16X +R write speed, but they have also ensured that the new media will maintain backward compatibility with existing DVD recorders and 1-8X DVD+R burners.

The patented AZO dye features excellent thermal and optical properties for a wider power margin and increased sensitivity to laser light for high-speed recording. Reliability is enhanced by controlling the heat interference between recording marks, which reduces degradation of the recording marks. This minimises the jitter and enables superior recording characteristics across the entire range of available recording speeds, from 1X through 16X. In addition, the high-speed Verbatim media will be produced using advanced precision moulding technology that ensures a consistently flat disc surface.

"The flatness of the media is especially critical for 16X recording because it minimises the errors that can occur during high-speed recording,? explained Kevin Jefcoate, Verbatim?s Director, Marketing and Product Management. "The recording speed is the fastest at the outer diameter, where the disc is most susceptible to flatness issues. Because of this, precise moulding and extremely flat media is vital at the 16X write speed. Because we work closely with the format working group as well as the verification authorities and leading burner manufacturers, consumers can be confident that Verbatim 16X DVD+R media will perform as expected.?

Reliable, high-speed recording and broad compatibility will make Verbatim?s new 16X DVD+R discs ideal for sharing computer data, home videos, photos, and music. With write-once security, 4.7 GB of capacity, and a 100-year data life, the media will also be an excellent storage solution for fast backups and archiving.
