Verbatim's unique DigitalMovie DVD Recordable discs are designed to put the fun in recording, viewing, and sharing home movies. Verbatim also says the discs are "ideal" for backing up DVD-Video titles and transferring video tapes to optical media that won't degrade over time. Consumers can also use the discs with compatible personal video recorders (PVRs) to standardize the look of their recorded videos in clear, DVD-Video-sized jewel boxes.
Designed to fit easily in most DVD video racks, the Super Jewel Box measures 7.5" x 5.6" x 0.4"--the same height as a VHS cassette and the same thin profile as a standard jewel case. The Super Jewel Box is manufactured with a crystal-clear polystyrene material that is more durable than a standard jewel case. With clear visibility of all four spines, users can read the DVD label without opening the case.
To produce 4X-speed discs with exceptional reliability and compatibility, the new media incorporates materials and manufacturing technologies developed by Verbatim's parent company, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM).
Verbatim DigitalMovie 4x DVD+R and DVD-R discs are based on MKM's Metal Azo recording dye technology. DigitalMovie DVD media are manufactured utilizing Ultra-Precise Molding (UPM) technology which is designed to produce very flat discs, and guarantee stable, high-speed rotation during the reading and writing process. Backed by a lifetime warranty, Verbatim DigitalMovie DVD-R and DVD+R media are expected to have a street price of about $11.99 per 3-pack.
