Advanced Media Adds RIDATA Double Sided 8X DVD-R

Offers 9.4 GB Of Storage Capacity and Affordable
High-Quality DVD Recording Now Available in DVD-R Format

Diamond Bar, Calif.--July 09, 2007--Advanced Media, Inc., manufacturer and marketer of the popular RIDATA brand of recordable CD and DVD media, electronic storage products, and digital media accessories, is adding a Double-Sided 8x DVD-R disc to its comprehensive DVD product line. With an amazing 9.4GB of storage capacity, the advanced, double-sided disc is a cost effective solution for virtually any business or household application.

"Our new double-sided discs now in both the +/-R formats solve the storage need for those who don't own a dual layer DVD recorder, but would appreciate a larger storage capacity per disc. They are the ideal solution for the ongoing recording of a TV series or DVD quality movies. Users of the RIDATA 8x DVD-R Double-Sided medium, and its dramatically increased storage capacity, will enjoy fast, reliable storage with a wide range of playback options." stated Harvey Liu, Advanced Media president. "We are pleased to expand our offering of this cost effective product."

The RIDATA double-sided disc is a more cost effective product for retailers to carry because it reduces shipping costs over traditional single sided DVD+/-R's. It's easier for consumers because now they can store twice the amount of data on a single disc. It is highly compatible with legacy DVD drives and many newer drives can close the disc as a DVD-ROM solving even more compatibility issues.

RITEK is the only optical disc manufacturer that uses a Flexible Manufacturing System in its facility that can quickly adapt to new technologies as they arise. Most optical disc manufacturers use an inline system that is much more difficult to adapt to new disc technologies.

The 8x speed quickly records virtually any audio, video, or data file on all popular DVD recorders. The convenient double-sided configuration allows users to read, write, or view nearly twice the amount of data than with single-layer 4.7GB DVD discs without having to change discs. The RIDATA dual-sided product stores up to four hours of DVD-quality video, 16 hours of VHS-quality video, or over 120 hours of MP3 audio.

The new RIDATA 8X dual-sided minus format disc features excellent compatibility with popular DVD-based video players, game consoles, and DVD-ROM drives. The RIDATA 8X DVD-R DS optical medium is competitively priced with a suggested MSRP of $0.59 per disc.

Does that mean we can now have double sided RiTEK G05 for that extra special parallel degradation of data?

Marketing slogan: Lose twice as much data in half the time!

It will be marketed to high security risk companies.
"With our media, even if the disc falls into the hands of your competitors, you don't have to worry about them ever retreiving the data!"

They could call it RiData's "CEO Sleep-Well" media, because CEO's will sleep better at night knowing their corporate secrets are secure.
