Message Text: The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) officially adopted Ecma-380, the second generation Ultra Density Optical (UDO2) Media Format Standard by Ecma International.

The new certified standard, which is known as ISO/IEC 11976, specifies the mechanical, physical and optical characteristics of Plasmon?s 60GB UDO2 media.

"The adoption of Plasmon?s second generation UDO2 standard by ISO, IEC and Ecma International further validates the significance of the technology and demonstrates to our customers that the Plasmon technology qualifies as an international high quality standard that meets the requirements for long-term digital archiving," said Dr. Robert Longman, Group Technical Director, Plasmon. "This is the second time that Plasmon?s UDO technology has been adopted as the recognized technology standard by three of the top technical standards organizations in the world. Plasmon will continue to drive innovation in the data archiving market and provide its users with products that meet the highest technology standards."

The new Ecma publication is Standard 380 and is titled "Data Interchange on 130 mm Rewritable and Write Once Read Many Ultra Density Optical (UDO) Disk Cartridges ? Capacity: 60 Gbytes per Cartridge ? Second Generation". It can be downloaded from the Ecma website at (http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/files/ECMA-ST/ECM A-380.pdf). ISO/IEC 11976 was published in July.
