Verbatim announces 16x DVD+R media!


Verbatim Corporation, a core member of the DVD+RW Alliance, announced plans to release 1-16X speed DVD+R media...

With the ability to record at about 21 MB/sec, the discs will store 4.7GB of video, photos, music or data files in about five minutes. Verbatim is working closely with the verification authorities and expects to begin manufacturing certified 1-16X DVD+R media shortly after specifications are released later this month. Sample 16X media has already been provided to five of the leading burner manufacturers that are tuning their drives to Verbatim's high-performance media.

The key component in achieving 16X speed DVD+R media that delivers optimum performance, superior quality and the broadest compatibility is the proprietary Advanced AZO(TM) recording layer technology developed by Verbatim's parent company, Mitsubishi? Kagaku Media (MKM). By using the proven dye technology incorporated in its 8X DVD+R media as the platform for the new, more sensitive Advanced AZO technology, MKM engineers not only achieved 16X +R write speed, they ensured that the new media will maintain backward compatibility with existing DVD recorders and 1-8X DVD+R burners.

The patented AZO dye features excellent thermal and optical properties for a wider power margin and increased sensitivity to laser light for high-speed recording. Reliability is enhanced by controlling the heat interference between recording marks, which reduces degradation of the recording marks. This minimizes the jitter and enables superior recording characteristics across the entire range of available recording speeds, from 1X through 16X.

In addition, the high-speed Verbatim media will be produced using advanced precision molding technology that ensures a consistently flat disc surface.

"The flatness of the media is especially critical for 16X recording because it minimizes the errors that can occur during high-speed recording," explained Tim Clatterbuck, Verbatim's Optical Storage Marketing Manager. "The recording speed is the fastest at the outer diameter, where the disc is most susceptible to flatness issues. Because of this, precise molding and extremely flat media is vital at the 16X write speed. Working closely with the format working group as well as the verification authorities and leading burner manufacturers, consumers can be confident that Verbatim 16X DVD+R media will perform as expected."

Reliable, high-speed recording and broad compatibility will make Verbatim's new 16X DVD+R discs ideal for sharing computer data, home videos, photos, and music. With write-once security and 4.7 GB of capacity, the media will also be an excellent storage solution for fast backups and archiving.

Availability

Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, Verbatim 16X DVD+R media will ship shortly after the media specifications are approved later this month. The new high-speed media will be available through leading retailers, Internet resellers and distributors across the country in September.
