CMC obtains DVD+R DL certification from Philips

CMC Magnetics announced that it has gained certification for DVD+R DL (single-sided double-layer) discs from Philips and is so far the only disc maker in Taiwan to do so.

CMC emphasized that it has developed DVD+R DL technology through cooperation with Philips. CMC has also been the only Taiwan maker to obtain Philips? certification for 16x DVD+R discs, according to the company. With these two certifications, the company has an estimated technology lead of half a year over local competitors. CMC has an R&D budget of NT$1.3 billion for this year, the company pointed out.

CMC will begin to deliver DVD+R DL discs in September. Since the retail price of US$5 for a DVD+R DL disc is 10 times that of an 8x DVD+R disc, CMC expects relatively high profitability from production for this segment.
