You can see the font's typeface??
Damn... you've got better eyes than mine!
When I looked at them earlier all I could conclude with certainty was that they were curved. On taking a second look now, though, those serial numbers are further away from the hole than I have ever seen on a Ritek CD-R. All the Ritek that I have seen have the serial number right next to the hole (not that this observation is definitive).
On the other hand, CMC does print their serial numbers further away from the hole, and looking at the reflective layer I see the tell-tale ring that indicates CMC. Thus, I am amending my earlier guess and am now saying that the Akai are most likely CMC.
And I'm not deliberately trying to be contrary, but the i-media hub doesn't look frosted to me. On the other hand I don't think anyone can say definitively one way or the other given the photo's quality...
