Message Text: Prodisc Technology has developed 8x DVD-R discs with a storage capacity of 4.9GB, 200MB larger than standard 4.7GB discs, the company pointed out.

The extra 200MB capacity is generated through reducing the track pitch and thereby fitting longer tracks onto the disc, the company explained.

Volume production of 4.9GB 8x DVD-R discs will kick off later this quarter, Prodisc noted.

Currently, 15 optical disc drive (ODD) makers offer burners that support the 4.9GB DVD-R discs, with LG Electronics, NEC, Pioneer, Ricoh, Samsung Electronics, Toshiba, TEAC as well as Taiwan?s BenQ and Lite-On IT being among the makers, Prodisc added.

In related news, Prodisc recently became Taiwan?s first optical disc maker to receive certification for its 16x DVD-R discs from the DVD Forum, according to the company.
