Verbatim Shipping 2-4X DVD-R Dual Layer Media
Posted May 27, 2005 Print Version     Page 1of 1

Verbatim Corporation announced that it is now shipping 2-4X DVD-R Dual-Layer (DL) media for consumers. Verbatim has been providing media samples of the new discs to leading drive manufacturers and software developers for tuning their products and confirming drive/media compatibility. Fully compatible with the DVD-R DL specification approved by the DVD Forum, Verbatim DVD-R DL media provides a capacity of 8.5GB on a single side. At 4X speed, an entire disc can be filled in about 25 minutes. NEC, Pioneer, Plextor, Sony and others have announced burners that support the new 4X DVD-R DL format.

By offering two recording layers, Verbatim's new DVD-R DL discs provide a capacity increase of about 80 percent compared to 4.7GB DVD-R media. With the higher capacity, businesses, content developers and consumers will be able to store up to 3.5 hours of DVD-quality videos, more than 120 hours of MP3 audio, or 8.5GB of data without having to flip the disc. The higher capacity that the DL discs provide also make them useful for corporate backups and archiving.

Verbatim 2-4X DVD-R DL media is available on the Verbatim web site,, with an estimated street price of $24.99 for a 3-pack in jewel cases.
