New LightScribe Labels in Colors


LightScribe Direct Disc Labelling announced today at the IFA World of Consumer Electronics tradeshow the development of five new vivid colour-background CDs for LightScribe images.

With the new LightScribe Media Version 1.2 coating technology, the same black text and graphics labels available on gold-background discs can be burned onto the label-side of LightScribe-enabled CDs in new jewel-toned background colours. LightScribe will exhibit the new colour-background CDs at LightScribe's double-decker bus, located in the IFA Summer Garden, Freigelande/2011.

The new version of the LihgtScribe technology supports five new CD background colours -- red, orange, yellow, blue and green. The colour-background CDs will have labelling speeds and enhanced image contrast comparable to those of the current gold-background discs.

The original gold-background LightScribe CDs and DVDs are already available through most leading media brands online and in retail stores. LightScribe enabled desktops, notebooks and optical disc drives are also available through a large number of hardware brands.

CDs with the LightScribe Media Version 1.2 coating technology are compatible with existing LightScribe-enabled drives and labelling software after a simple download of an updated driver file. The new colour-background CDs are expected to be brought to the European market by brand licensees in early 2006. Five of the initial brands intent on offering LightScribe colour-background CDs are HP, Memorex, Mitsubishi, Philips and Verbatim.

In support of the LightScribe colour-background CDs launch, CMC Magnetics Corporation, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media, and Moser Baer India will be among the initial media manufacturers to produce the discs.

Faster-speed coating for the original LightScribe gold-background CDs and DVDs is also expected to be brought to market by media brands in early 2006.

LightScribe announces new licensees

LightScribe also announced today that a number of additional companies have licensed its Direct Disc Labelling technology. These new licensees include hardware brands Alienware, Evesham Technology, Medion, Pacific Digital and Packard Bell; media manufacturer Prodisc; software developers SmileOnMyMac and Ulead; and disc duplicator supplier Alera Technologies.

LightScribe Direct Disc Labelling technology is already being incorporated by optical drive and media manufacturers, software developers, media and computer brands, including:

Hardware brands Asustek, BenQ, Freecom Technologies, HP, I/OMagic, LaCie, Lite-On IT, Philips, ProStar Computer and Sager Computer;

Media manufacturers CMC Magnetics, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media and Moser Baer India;
