New UDO-DMD Media Format For Distribution and Archival Storage of HD DVD Content


Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM)/Verbatim, Memory Tech Corporation (MTC), and Plasmon on Monday announced a technology and business alliance to manufacture and promote a new optical storage format called UDO-DMD (Ultra Density Optical - Digital Master Disk).

UDO-DMD has been designed specifically for the secure distribution and long-term storage of high value HD DVD content between authoring studios and disc mastering facilities.

Based on professional blue laser UDO technology, DMD drives and media have been optimized to meet the stringent security and reliability requirements of the HD DVD content industry. Many studios today depend on magnetic tape and RAID systems to transport and archive valuable content. Video content is often lost on tapes because they are unreliable for long-term storage and archiving rapidly increasing amounts of data to RAID is prohibitively expensive and insecure for long term archive. By contrast, UDO-DMD provides an extremely stable media housed in a cartridge that has a data life far greater than tape or RAID storage. To minimize the risk of content piracy, the new DMD media cannot be written and read in standard UDO drives. DMD also provides physical WORM (Write Once Read Many) recording for content authenticity and an additional cartridge locking security feature to minimise the risk of valuable content loss.

Each of the three companies making the announcement today brings a wealth of technology and industry experience to the alliance. Plasmon will manufacture DMD drives and media; MKM will manufacture DMD media and provide global media distribution under their Verbatim brand, and MTC will be championing the technology worldwide through its extensive expertise in the video content and mastering industry. DMD will be initially released with a 30GB content capacity (DMD30), growing to 60GB in 2Q07 (DMD60) and will have additional data capacity for AACS copy protection and encryption information.

"While UDO-DMD is a new product, it is based on our already well established UDO technology" explained Nigel Street, Plasmon?s CEO. "With thousands of organizations worldwide relying on UDO to archive their valuable business records, it has a very successful track record in professional archive environments that demand content authenticity and longevity. The optimized features that we have added to UDO-DMD will provide the HD DVD content industry with an already proven technology that has the capabilities they need to address their unique business requirements."
