Moser Baer India to Launch Next-gen Discs Later This Year

Moser Baer India is among the companies that will develop and commercialize Blu-ray and HD DVD media by the end of 2006.

Over the past three years, the company has invested in its R&D programs targeted at developing the next generation formats in optical media space by leveraging its core skills in base material engineering, thin film coating, precision sputtering and deep UV mastering technologies. Starting from 1QFY07, the company plans to launch a series of next generation formats, in conjugation with drive and recorder availability, and expects to be first to market in a majority of these formats. The India-based manufacturer of optica media believes that DVDR Dual Layer, HDDVD-R (recordable) and RE (re-writable), HDDVD Dual layer, and BD-R and RE are the products that will have a significant market potential in the future.

?The company has developed a unique patented technology, specifically for advanced generation of BD formats which will not only enable lower manufacturing costs, but also allow the consumer greater ease of interchangeability of media across different drives. This is expected to give us a significant competitive edge in the next generation format race.? Mr Brian Bartholomuez, Senior Vice President Strategic Initiatives, Moser Baer India Ltd, said.

The company has also begun collaborative efforts with companies in the Holographic technology domain in order to work on media and related development for the future disk with capacities up to 200GB and beyond.

?In a fast evolving market landscape and increasing competition, companies will increasingly use technology to differentiate themselves and not only launch innovative products, but also do so through more efficient manufacturing. We have embarked on a strategy to transform into a technology developer and innovator from a technology recipient. We believe that this will widen the gap between us and second-tier players. With proprietary technology and a possible first to market position in the next generation formats, we are well placed to further enhance our global leadership position.? Mr Yogesh Mathur, Group Chief Financial Officer, Moser Baer India Ltd, said.

During FY06, the company spent USD 87million to expand capacity to 2.8 billion units per annum. The company plan to further increase its annual optical media capacity to 3.2 billion discs at a cost of USD 75 million, 30% of this planned capex is for next generation formats like the BD, HDDVD & DL.
