The first Fujifilm-branded Blu-ray media will be available in spring 2006.
The new discs will be available in 25GB storage capacities both in write-once and re-writable formats, which can be used on BD drives with 1-2X writing speed.
Fujifilm launched cartridge type rewritable Blu-ray discs (23.3GB) into the Japanese market in 2003. To meet the end users' needs, Fujifilm will introduce non-cartridge type Blu-ray discs with larger capacity (25GB) into the market, which conform to the latest copy protection system AACS (Advanced Access Content System).
The discs feature a newly developed hard-coated cover layer will protect your discs from scratches and abrasions. In addition, a highly sensitive data recording layer ensures reliable recording.
Fujifilm did not give any price details about the new discs.
