Taiyo Yuden released a new series of DVD-R media featuring a special coating for protection against scratches and dust.
Part of the company's "That's" series of DVD media, the new 16x DVD-Rs are made in Japan and promise to offer durability while retaining compatibility, stability, and storage performance. A special coating on the recording surface protects the DVD-R from scratches, blemishes and dust.
The 'Triple Guard' coating technology boosts scratch resistance by 200 times compared with previous Taiyo Yuden products. In addition, the fingerprint adherence is reduced to less than 1/7th, while it
improves static electricity discharge performance by 1000 times.
This product is capable of 16x recording, and the label surface comes with Wide Printable for an inkjet printer color print range wider by 10mm. The lineup includes a 5mm plastic case (holding up to 10 discs for both data and video), and a bulk case (up to 50 discs for data or 10 discs for video). The discs will reach the store shelves in June 12.
