TDK Now Shipping UV-Protected Armor Plated DVD-R Media
Posted Mar 23, 2004 Print Version     Page 1of 1

TDK, a world leader in digital recording and playback solutions, is now shipping its new UV-protected Armor Plated DVD media in the DVD-R format, premium quality recordable DVD media that incorporates next-generation hard coating. TDK's new second-generation Armor Plated DVD-R media adds an ultraviolet protection layer that guards against UV damage, for even greater durability.

TDK's Armor Plated DVD discs incorporate advanced hard-coating technologies to provide protection that is up to 100 times greater than standard recordable DVD media, as measured in rigorous laboratory testing. And with the addition of the UV coating, TDK's new Armor Plated DVD-R discs also provide three times greater resistance to damaging UV light than any other DVD media available.

The Armor Plated DVD coating guards against scratches that can occur from day to day use, as discs are placed in and removed from their storage cases, DVD players, and drives. In addition, the coating provides dirt resistance, making it easier to wipe off fingerprints, contaminants, and even accidental food and beverage spills without damaging the disc. The Armor Plated DVD coating is anti-static to repel dust accumulation. Because the TDK Armor Plated DVD treatment protects the recording layer, it can prevent write/read errors, jitter, and even recording and playback dropouts.

TDK Armor Plated DVD-R media with UV protection are currently available now at an estimated street price of for $4.99 each.

TDK Corporation also announced that from March 2004, it will join the Blu-ray Disc Founders (BDF) group. TDK's entry marks the first by a manufacturer of recording media. Through its research and development of optical discs, TDK has conducted necessary technical development for the next-generation disc utilizing the blue laser.

Underscoring its expanded position as a provider of next generation optical media solutions to the professional broadcasting industry, TDK will be exhibiting at NAB 2004 for the first time. Marking one of the most significant product introductions in the company's history, TDK will also showcase its groundbreaking prototype blue laser disc for Sony's "Professional Disc" Systems. The disc offers an unprecedented 23.3GB storage capacity, and provides optimal video recording and playback when used with Sony's XDCAM camcorders and decks.
