TDK showcases 200GB disc technology

TDK, a world leader in digital recording solutions, is highlighting its 200GB blue laser disc technology, the most advanced optical media ever developed.

“TDK’s 200GB blue laser disc technology represents an important milestone for optical media. As a founding member of the Blu-ray Disc Association, we are proud of our work to shape the future of digital recording,” commented Sethu Palat, TDK Director of Marketing.

One of TDK’s new prototype 200GB blue laser discs stores approximately 18 hours of high definition video (encoded at 24Mbps). These massive capacity discs are suited for backing up HD editing sessions and archives.

TDK was the first company to ship Blu-ray Discs with its April 2006 introduction of 25GB BD-R and BD-RE media, and is now being honored with an Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Award from the Consumer Electronics Association for its TDK 25GB BD-R Blu-ray Disc media.

TDK will begin shipping 50GB Blu-ray Discs in the first quarter of 2007 and TDK Thermal and Inkjet Printable BD-R will begin shipping in the second quarter of 2007.
