Verbatim sent out a press release this morning, announcing the world's first LightScribe 8x DVD+R Double Layer (DL) discs. Available in the U.S. in November, these new discs are produced with LightScribe Media Version 1.2 coating technology and are fully compatible with LightScribe-enabled drives and software.
Leveraging many of the same technologies that set the standard for high-speed DVD+R Double Layer (DL) disc performance, reliability and compatibility, Verbatim® Americas, LLC, announced today the world’s first LightScribe® 8X DVD+R Double Layer (DL) discs. At 8X speed, the industry’s fastest DVD DL burning speed, an entire 8.5GB single-sided disc can be filled to capacity in 15 minutes¹ or less. Verbatim will begin shipping LightScribe 8X DVD+R DL discs in November.
Verbatim and its parent company, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), have consistently been at the forefront in developing DVD+R DL technologies and LightScribe media coating. Verbatim was also the first company to release DVD+R DL discs and LightScribe media worldwide.
LightScribe certified, Verbatim’s new double layer media is fully compatible with LightScribe-enabled drives, duplicators and the latest software licensed by Hewlett-Packard Company (HP). When combined, the same drive that burns content to the data side of the disc can be used to burn silkscreen-quality monochrome labels directly on the label side of the discs. The discs are produced with LightScribe Media Version 1.2 coating technology on the label side to provide enhanced contrast for photos, graphics, images and text. Verbatim’s new DVD+R DL discs deliver LightScribe direct-to-disc labeling quality and convenience without requiring any software or firmware upgrades.
