TDK has begun shipping ultimate performance recordable Blu-ray Discs with printable surfaces.
The two new products are the BD-R25PWX25CB ($24.99) for inkjet systems, and BD-R25THX25CB ($24.99) for thermal systems. Both incorporate exclusive surface coatings to deliver professional quality printing results. The discs utilize TDK’s DURABIS technology. DURABIS is a hard coating technology that protects the surface of all TDK Blu-ray Discs against common contaminants such as scratches and fingerprints. It increases the scratch resistance of Blu-ray Disc media. Because the DURABIS coating technology rapidly discharges static electricity, the discs also resist the accumulation of dust.
The BD-R25PWX25CB for inkjet systems features a blank, matte white surface, and the BD-R25THX25CB for thermal systems features a blank, glossy white surface. Both allow printing all the way to the disc hub, to maximize visual impact.
“TDK’s new 25GB BD-R printable surface media products deliver the exemplary performance and durability required for professional applications. Not only do the discs incorporate TDK’s award-winning recording and hard coating technologies; they also offer optimal printing results with specially formulated print to the hub surfaces designed for inkjet and thermal systems,” said Sethu Palat, TDK Director of Marketing.
TDK 25GB BD-R printable surface Blu-ray Discs are exclusively manufactured at TDK’s technical center in Japan. The use of this facility helps ensure ultra-stringent quality control. For commercial recording applications where errors can’t be tolerated, TDK printable surface Blu-ray Discs are the wise choice.
