BestDisc, an independent DVD manufacturer in Asia, recently opened a new facility in Taiwan focusing on BD-ROM, both single and dual layer, and equipped with quality control systems from DaTARIUS.
Mastering , galvanic and replication lines were installed and optimized earlier this year and, to help control and fine-tune their manufacturing process, BestDisc has chosen the DaTABANK solution equipped with a BD driveCube, along with the CoverTest stamper testing technology developed by DaTARIUS.
"For us, taking the lead in high definition media was a strategic decision," says Mr. Sam Yang, the Vice President of BestDisc. "Although BD is not yet on the weekly shopping list for consumers worldwide, the market penetration improves virtually on a daily basis, and we are confident that BD will lead high definition optical media."
"In order to make our manufacturing process run more smoothly, we have selected what we believe to be the most experienced and reliable partner in DaTARIUS. Their solution for stamper and disc testing has proved to give us the best correlation between stamper and disc measurements. In addition to delivering reference measurements, the built-in tools such as statistic analysis and remote monitoring are ideally suited to our QC needs."
BestDisc BD discs passed the quality verification by Sony?s Blue-ray Test Centre in early September.
