Verbatim introduces 100GB Blu-ray recordable discs in Europe
Certified by the BDA (Blu-ray Disc Association), the high capacity recordable Blu-ray Discs from Verbatim enable users to backup high resolution photography, music or HD video files at 4x write speed. With 100GB storage, the BDXL discs can approximately store over 40,000 photos, 20,000 songs or 8 hours of HD video.
Blu-ray Discs offer significantly more storage capacity compared to DVD and CD media resulting in far fewer discs being required to save large volumes of data. Standard Blu-ray Discs provide storage capacities of 25GB for a single-layer disc and 50GB for a dual-layer disc, but Verbatim’s BDXL disc includes a third layer to give it a storage capacity of 100GB. The discs come with a specialised hard coat surface to protect them against scratches.
Blu-ray Discs are regarded as a key optical storage media for professional archiving in addition to HD television recording and video distribution. Another emerging application is content distribution using duplication equipment where Blu-ray Discs with inkjet or thermal printable surfaces are duplicated for small-scale distribution projects.
In Japan, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media also plans to introduce a professional 100GB ‘Enterprise Grade’ BD-R BDXLTM developed especially for digital archiving of corporate documents. The discs’ optimal recording capabilities are best served by Pioneer Corporation’s BDR-PR1M and BDR-PR1MA – dedicated BD drives that provide professional users with excellent first time recording of data to ensure longer disc life and retrieval of stored information.
