I didn't realize that this was a joint development between Yamaha and Fuji. I'm guessing Fuji developed the dye.

Yep and Ritek seems to have made the disc you got there.

Hmm not suprising.
Lightscribe is used by the MKM/CMC camp.
So main competitor on they dye market FUJI and there reliable partner Ritek choose the side of the competition.

Hello!

Nice :)

Hope the media is not so high priced like the LS-media. And I hope, Ritek will not be the only maker of this media :-?

Ian, on the front page, you mentioned that the NEC 4550 has Labelflash. Shouldn't it be the 4551?

They state that it takes about 5 minutes to complete a disc in high speed mode, 20 minutes in high quality mode. How does that compare to Lightscribe? If I recall correctly, it was/is pretty slow as well, but didn't Lightscribe announce a speed increase earlier this year?

LightScribe 2x (or is it 1.8x?) media should cut the time almost in half. No idea when it will actually ship though. It was supposed to be out this summer.

That's interesting about Labelflash taking 20 minutes in high quality mode. It's faster speed is one of the things they've been advertising as an advantage over LightScribe.

so is the media gonna be 100% more than regular media and available nowhere? :D

I am willing to pay an extra 10 Canadian dollars per recorder for such a feature....and maybe 10-30 cents more per media for this.

whaddya think

pure scimming by these companies to get those who have no burners into the game at a premium price. Technology probably costs them $5 or less extra per drive but they add on $50

why this stuff has not and will not take off....why buy if you can go to ncix and get a benq 1640 for $50?


I'll keep my marker and crayons for now till these mfgers get their act together...

Well in the old days BASF ceramatic coated disc's (TY manufactured) allowed to be abused by allmost everything.
I have used pencils and ballpoints once for labeling which didn't gave any real problems. :o
Still wonder if Taiyo Yudens that's medai with ceramatic coating has the same quality coating I expect it to be. (*So which european store is smart to start selling these because me and some compannies and some people in the public sector (Read Universities and Hospitals) want these disc's back. The newer EMTEC can not match with the old TY version. )

It was possible with the old basf (made by TY) to remove the whole coating layer which gave you a pure silver disc which was still playable.

Fuji Photo Film Company Limited introduces revolutionary new technology with a printerless, high-resolution graphics labeliing system for disc surfaces: the Labelflash System's 16x speed DVD-R discs, before the end of the year.

The standard DVD recordable media for PCs market has leveled off, therefore we have decided that there is a increasing market for people to design their own graphics and titles, but still being able to store data on the dvd.
Before, the printing and labeling discs was done using inkjet printers and labels. The time has finally come for printerless disc graphics.
