Dr. Eugene Levich, CTO for NME, has been invited to speak about the company's High Definition Versatile Multilayer Disc (HD VMD) solution at the MEDIA-TECH Showcase & Conference 2007, March 6-7, in Barcelona, Spain.
The red laser-based HD VMD
optical disc and format is a cost-effective alternative to Blu-ray and HD DVD formats through a total HD solution at prices comparable
with the existing DVD market.
As one of the invited keynote speakers at MEDIA-TECH, Dr. Levich will educate attendants on VMD technology. Dr. Levich will cover the benefits of HD VMD to consumers, PC drive and media player manufacturers, disc replicators and content providers, and discuss why this proprietary optical storage solution is a major development for the packaged media industry.
The speech will take place on Wednesday, March 7 at 11:30 a.m. and will illustrate his lecture with a live demonstration of the true HD VMD 20 (GB) disc played back in a regular "off the shelf" DVD drive. He will also display a new HD VMD Media Player based on this "off the shelf" DVD loader.
HD VMD is currently being adopted by content providers and distributors in 12 regions worldwide, including Brazil, Central Europe, China, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Japan, the Middle East, Russia, Scandinavia, and the United States.
VMD 2p technology can provide up to eight information layers on each side of a disc and can be utilized for both red laser and blue laser formats. The technology is applicable for single- and double-sided discs and a multiplicity of formats, including Blu-ray and HD-DVD.
