Miniature Blue Laser Drives For Mobiles


Vmedia Research, Inc. today unveiled a movie phone that supports a miniature Blue optical disc format.

The company has developed the Vmedia disc, a new removable optical media for mobile devices that puts the latest movies and TV series into consumers' pockets.

A Vmedia optical disc is 32mm in diameter and is protected from the mobile environment by a slim cartridge. Despite their tiny size, Vmedia discs are able to hold complete movies at 576p resolution by combining blue laser technology with advanced video (H.264) and audio codecs (AAC).



Vmedia is a molded polycarbonate optical disc designed for economical high volume manufacturing using processes similar to DVD replication. The first generation single-layer Vmedia disc has 1GB of capacity. Vmedia disc capacity will increase to 2GB on dual layer discs which the company expects to ship in 2009. A recordable Vmedia disc is under development for future release.

Playback of Vmedia discs in mobile devices is possible due to the miniaturization in the design of the Vmedia optical drive. The drives are resistant to shock and vibration, and feature low power consumption. The first generation Vmedia optical drive is currently shipping to mobile device manufacturers. A second generation slim drive with a reduced height of 9.5mm will be shipping in the latter half of 2008.

Vmedia optical drive is packaged as a complete component, in order to speed integration for mobile device OEMs and ODMs. For additional information visit http://www.vmedia.net.
