According to DigiTimes, Daxon Technology recently secured certification for 16x DVD+R discs from Philips.
Daxon?s shipments of DVD+R/-R discs are focused on 8x speed this quarter; however 16x DVD+R discs will begin to see increasing demand next quarter due to the certification and growing use of 16x DVD burners, the company indicated.
In addition to 16x DVD+R discs, Daxon is poised to apply for certification for 16x DVD-R from the DVD Forum, once the licensing is available, the company noted. The certification will actually be conducted by Pioneer, Daxon added.
Ritek, the second largest producer of optical discs in Taiwan, indicated that it has not yet sent its 16x DVD+R discs for Philips certification but will do so when the occasion arises. Ritek?s 16x DVD+R/-R discs have passed product certification by many clients, according to the company.
