Taiyo Yuden recently announced their new 8x DVD-R DL media. Developed for video archiving, these new discs are available with or without support for CPRM.
Taiyo Yuden acted to improve on this performance by utilizing its high-level core technologies in thermal design and substrate design to achieve a DVD-R DL capable of 8x recording speed, the fastest in the industry. This product can record on DVD-R DL up to 215 minutes of video data of standard definition in about 15 minutes.
The new DVD-R DL product is available in two types, one for regular analog broadcast video, and the other with CPRM compatibility for digital broadcast "copy once programs," so-called because they limit digital recording to one copy only. Moreover, a wide printable label extends the printable range by 10mm further inside than regular printable label type, allowing more flexibility for inkjet printers. Sales are to start July 1 with a 5-disc pack in a slim plastic case. Prices will be set as open prices.
