- User data capacity is 8.54GB per side for 12cm and 2.66GB for a 8cm discs.
- Recorded disc characteristics are conformed to those of Dual Layer Read-only Disc. The recorded DVD-R DL disc is equivelant to a Dual Layer DVD Read-Only disc in playability
- Dual Layer DVD-R Specifications keep the concept of DVD-R copy management of which security is the same as that of the current DVD-R Specifications
- Dual Layer DVD-R disc is not expected before, therefore there are some players or drive to refuse record or playaback of the disc even they are designed following the current specification. However that is rather smal fraction of existing devices
- Compliance to playback of the Dual Layer DVD-R disc will be recommended to player manufactureres

* Unrecorded Disc Specifications:

2X-speed (Revision 0.0, Class 0, v2.9 specs)

* Write Strategy: Same as 8X-speed DVD-R write strategy including the range of each parameter
* Optimum recording power: 50.0mW as the upper limit
* Mandatory recording speeds for a 16X/1X and a 12X/1X disc:

* Others: Other items shall keep the current specifications, write strategy code and RMD fields are expanded according to the current manner.

- 16X DVD-RAM Proposal: Mr. Masahiko Takahashi explained the main concept behind the 16X DVD-RAM recording speed. New media would be needed and its planned to used full CAV (6~16X) for DVD-RAM recording. Middle of 2005 is the target date of the new format.

Concept: Class 1 with 6-16X speed:
* 6-16X is possible with jitter value less than 9%.
* For 5X speed, it is necessary for media to improved much more
* To avoid user confusion, 5X specification had better not be included in the new class, because there can be 5X drive which doesn't correspond to 5X speed recording at the inner area of the disc
