Estimated life of 100 years of Panasonic Blu-ray disc
All archival discs will be inspected and certified to keep the professional quality, ensuring further enhanced durability. The Century Archival Grade model features a new recording layer structure that ensures longer shelf life. The Panasonic Blu-ray disc recording layers are protected on both sides with newly-developed layers that are extremely close-grained to keep out external materials such as water and dust. The Century Archival Grade Disc has an estimated life of 100 years.
Archival and Century Archival Panasonic Blu-ray discs
Both Archival and Century Archival Panasonic Blu-ray discs adopt “Tough Coating”, a double protective layer with hard coat and cover layers for added durability and high elasticity. The new hard coat is designed with a harder material that is more resistant to scratches and fingerprints and offers superior repellency against water and oil. The elastic cover layer material protects against pressure marks. With this optimally balanced “Tough Coating,” the new discs offer greater reliability and easier handling under various conditions for professional use.
