"Image quality is critical in the photo-graphy business - both on the disc storing the photos and other creative endeavors, and on the disc label showcasing the work," said Tom Lally, US executive director of sales and marketing, Imation. "That's why we've developed innovative products to save and transport high-capacity files, such as our portable flash products and our secure Imation Micro Hard Drive, and plan to offer high-capacity Blu-ray and HD DVD optical discs."
Imation Inkjet Printable Discs
Tom Lally continued: "We also introduced Imation CDs and DVDs with ForceField scratch-resistant coating to protect against scratches, smudges, dust and debris as well as Imation Inkjet Printable CDs and DVDs with AquaGuard surface, featuring the world's first water-resistant surface for inkjet printable media, to 'lock in' images on the surface of the disc."

On Imation's Inkjet Printable Discs with AquaGuard surface, once the image is printed, it is bright, sharp and permanent. Featuring a proprietary surface that utilizes nanoparticle technology to grip and hold ink, these discs resist smearing and color bleed when exposed to water or humidity.
