Maxell Corporation of America, the technology and marketing leader in premium recordable media products, today unveiled another industry first -- its new Mini DVD-R discs, providing a compact high-capacity storage solution for mobile digital applications.
The new Mini DVD-R discs use the same compact 8cm (3") form factor as Maxell's Mini DVD camcorder products and Mini CD-R discs, and provide 1.4 GB of storage capacity and are capable of storing up to 30 minutes of digital video or up to 20 hours of MP3 audio. Maxell's newest DVD-R products are write-compatible with all general purpose DVD-R/RW drives, and read-compatible with all recordable DVD drive formats, as well as DVD-ROM, DVD Video and DVD Audio.
"The new generation of mobile digital devices including digital camcorders, digital cameras and MP3 players share two common storage requirements: capacity and a compact form factor, and we were committed to be the first to meet them," said Dawn Wortman, senior marketing manager at Maxell. "Maxell ranked the highest in recent comprehensive DVD compatibility testing, so as always users can trust our new DVD-R products to meet their needs in playback compatibility, portability and capacity."
The compact size and universal read-compatibility make Maxell Mini DVD-R discs an ideal medium for a broad range of mobile storage applications, including storage of multimedia content -- digital audio, video and still images, graphics, business presentations, Internet downloads and data sharing.
Maxell's Mini DVD-R discs will be available in February in both 5-pack and 10-pack configurations.
