Sentinel, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of data storage media for data, audio and video, officially starts with the production of DVD+RW media. This makes Sentinel the first non-Asian manufacturer. The figures of EMA show that the consumer has clearly adopted the DVD+RW media as a standard, with over 80% market share in the rewritable DVD segment. It is obvious that the compatibility with the available drives on the market and the userfriendliness strongly contributed to this success...
The userfriendliness mainly adds up to the ‘one-button recording’ concept for home DVD recorders and the ‘drag-and-drop’ feature for personal computers, as for floppy disks. With the production of DVD+RW media, Sentinel enforces its dominant position on the European market of rewritable data storage media and the fact that it is ready for further developments in this segment.
Mr Tony Neven, Chief Execute Officer of Care4Data Group, of which Sentinel is a member, says :’DVD is a very interesting media. It is the first ever to be used for audio, video and data. We have no doubt that it is only a matter of time until DVD will dominate the market of data storage media. That is why we also start producing prerecorded DVD in March.’ The complete portfolio of data storage media, its famous quality assurance and comprehensive service provision result in the offering of Sentinel branded products, bulk products and private label services.
