TDK Ships 8cm, Double-Sided DVD Camcorder Media

TDK has introduced its 8cm ScratchProof Double Sided DVD recording media for the latest generation of DVD camcorders.

In addition to providing double-sided DVD recording functionality, the new product also incorporates TDK's exclusive DURABIS hard coating technology. Both sides of TDK 8cm ScratchProof Double Sided DVD media feature DURABIS technology to protect the disc surfaces against common contaminants such as scratches, fingerprints, and dust adherence.

Offering 2.8GB capacity, a TDK 8cm ScratchProof Double Sided DVD provides a full hour of recording in a DVD camcorder. The discs can be played in virtually any home DVD player, according to TDK.

In addition to giving TDK 8cm recording media up to 100 times greater scratch-resistance than standard optical discs, according to TDK, DURABIS also makes it easy to wipe off fingerprints, ink smudges, and accidental food and beverage spills without damaging the disc. DURABIS enhances the disc's static discharge rate, thereby reducing dust adherence. Because the TDK DURABIS coating technology protects the recording layer, it can prevent write/read errors, jitter, and even recording and playback dropouts, TDK reports. Reducing the amount of dust that can contact a camcorder's delicate internal optics can help maintain hardware performance and may extend the device's longevity. DURABIS also effectively prevents damage from exposure to ultraviolet rays.

TDK's full 8cm DVD media lineup includes 8cm ScratchProof Double Sided DVD-R, 8cm ScratchProof DVD-R and 8cm ScratchProof DVD-RW, all of which feature DURABIS technology. TDK also offers standard 8cm DVD-R and DVD-RW. Rated for recording at up to 2x speed, TDK's 8cm ScratchProof Double Sided DVD-R media, ScratchProof DVD-R and ScratchProof DVD-RW are all currently available at estimated street prices of $6.99, $3.99 and $4.99 each, respectively. TDK's standard DVD-R and DVD-RW 8cm media is also currently available at estimated street prices of $1.99 and $2.99 each, respectively.
