MAM-A to re-release the Gold DVDR

Postby dolphinius_rex on Thu Dec 16, 2004 4:28 pm

From MAM-A:

Regarding Gold DVD-R's, we have already made a test run at our factory in Colorado and it looks very promising.
I should have more information in January.


If anyone really cares.... :roll:

Hmm this is more complex as you might think.
WE are talking about dvd recordables with golden reflective layer. MPO only uses a gold reflective layer. But still a purple/blue dye. (AZO/CYANINE ?)
If they say gold/golden dye they can mean Pthalocyanine based dye's because the industry sometimes calls them like that.
Now doe this mean that the new media again doesn't have a non blue/purple bottom like the old MAM/MITSUI Japan 2x media did ?.
Hmm I have my doubts. If they succeeded in launching a new pthalocyanine based dye for higher speeds.
So let's see what they come up with if they come up with something.
