Now two of the largest providers of CD-R burners - LGE and LiteOn - have certified Ultragreen disc samples at 48x, currently the highest recording speed available in the market. Other recent high speed certifications include Plextor, Benq and Cyberdrive, all of whom have approved Ultragreen media at the maximum burning speeds available.
The media samples were produced by Plasmon using the latest developments in Ciba's Irgaphor Ultragreen MX CD-R dye technology, details of which are made freely available to Ciba's worldwide customer base.
