"...The EMTEC BASF 1-16X Multi-Speed CD-R and 12X Ceram-Guard CD-R are new additions to EMTEC's full line of CD and CD-R products now available in North America from EMTEC DataStoreMedia. These latest, as well as the current, CD-R products are packaged with prominent color-coded write speeds such as 1-12X and 1-16X. EMTEC will be premiering its 4.7 GB DVD-R and a multi-media card (MMC) about the size of a postage stamp for portable and hand held devices in Europe later this year.
EMTEC's new 1-16X Multi Speed CD-R can be used in the newest CD recorders with a 16X write-speed, as well as in older, slower recorders. This Multi Speed disk is protected from damage by a special coating and a hardened surface. Also available from EMTEC DataStoreMedia is the EMTAC BASF Ceram Guard, a 1-12X CD-R with a special ceramic coating. This coating reliably protects the CD against scratches, damage and data loss.
EMTEC offers its CD-R Extra for users of older CD-writers (1-8x write speed) with a standard capacity of 650 MB and another CD-R Extra version with a 700 MB capacity. Also available from EMTEC is its rewritable 1-4X CD-RW. All EMTEC CD-Rs are downwardly compatible in write speeds
