VerbatimVerbatim DVD-R archival media : Verbatim Corporation and Mitsubishi Kagaku Media announced a breakthrough in archival media technology that will provide government agencies, organizations and end users with highly compatible, super long life DVD media for storing critical data and preserving precious memories. The technology is based on the company's Dual Reflective Layer technology. Verbatim will leverage this technology to deliver superior 8x speed DVD-R archival-grade media in Q2 2006. With the Dual Reflective Layer technology, Verbatim's archival-grade DVD-R media delivers substantially higher durability than standard DVD-R discs and provides the same level of read/write compatibility than other Verbatim media.

For added protection against scratches and abrasion, the new archival-grade DVD-R media features Verbatim/MKM's innovative VideoGard technology. The VideoGard protective coating on the disc surface makes it 40 times more resistant to damage. When combined with MKM's patented Metal AZO DVD recording dye and proprietary VideoGard hard coat technology, the revolutionary Dual Reflective Layer will enable Verbatim archival-grade DVD-R discs to deliver new levels in longevity and performance without sacrificing compatibility.

Verbatim 8x DVDR archival media - Compatibility
Tim Clatterbuck, Verbatim Optical Storage Manager, emphasized that when it comes to archiving valuable data, users need both longevity and broad playback compatibility. "Archival-grade DVD media that only uses gold for the reflective layer provides a longer disc life, but it also has lower reflectivity and different read/write characteristics than standard silver DVD-Rs. This can cause drive compatibility issues," he noted. "By adding the Dual Reflective Layer, Verbatim archival-grade DVD-R media will look like the traditional discs to DVD drives and recorders and can attain the same drive read/write compatibility."

Verbatim archival media - Single and Dual layer
To overcome compatibility issues, the first layer of Verbatim's new Dual Reflective Layer is highly reflective and this, when combined with the Metal AZO dye recording layer, provides excellent read/write performance. As a result, DVD recordable drives can apply optimized recording conditions without requiring any firmware upgrades. The second reflective layer prevents oxygen from coming through the DVD bonding material. Oxidation, one of the primary causes of degradation, limits the lifetime of DVD media. Tested under a full range of environmental and accelerating aging conditions, media featuring Verbatim/MKM Dual Reflective Layer technology has performed flawlessly when subjected to extreme heat, humidity and ultraviolet light. Estimated lifetime tests have shown that the new Verbatim media lasts longer than archival DVDs manufactured with a single gold layer.

Verbatim DVD-R archival media - Video and Photo storage
The write-once format, longer data life and broad compatibility will make Verbatim 8x DVD-R archival-grade media ideal for organizations with compliance requirements (data retention and security). These organizations archive critical information such as financial data, legal files, government and home security records and medical images that must not be altered or overwritten. Verbatim DVD-R archival-grade media will also be ideal for consumers who want to protect their videos and photos for future generations. Verbatim is a member of the Optical Storage Technology Association (OSTA) and the Optical Disc Archival Testing (ODAT) Committee, a committee formed by OSTA to collaborate on the development and implementation of optical disc archival test specifications.
