13. Mam-e

MAM-E

MAM-E, based in France, has put a lot of effort into setting up their facilities. They control every aspect of the production process, enforce strict quality control guidelines and have invested heavily in R&D. They have developed their own dye, di-pyromethene which is used in the colouring layer during the manufacture of the media, having licensed the original technology with exclusive rights from Mitsui Chemicals.

Having such control over the production line places them in a very advantageous position, however it has created delays while they ironed out quality problems in the production line and hence the late arrival on to the market of 8x and 16x media.

Their DVD-R media will support speeds of 8x and 16x, and the 16x media will support slower speeds, including 12x, thanks to the new dye.

Overburning will not be possible at these speeds however, due to the fact that DVD-R is too sensitive and would prove unreliable. This is something that holds true for all manufacturers media. 8x DVD-R media should be available from MAM-E in approximately one month and 8x DVD+R in around two months time. MAM-E will be one of few manufacturers who will be paying royalties to Philips for rights to produce DVD+R media. There will also be support for Blu-ray sometime in the future.

MAM-E produces its own stampers but also sells stampers to others. They will be producing media for the TEAC label.
