Imation unveils printable discs with improved surface

Imation (UK), a leading supplier of removable data storage media, has tunveiled its new advanced bright white surface inkjet printable media, to meet the increasing consumer demand for multiple custom-printed CDs and DVDs.

The new discs boast an improved 10 per cent whiter surface, to create enhanced colour contrast and a professional level of print quality. The reflector layer has been expanded to create a uniform printing surface in the hub area and a new design and manufacturing process will help prevent stacked discs from sticking together, resulting in fewer system and workflow interruptions.

Craig Hill, sales and marketing manager at Imation comments: "Printing graphics directly to Imation printable optical media creates professional-looking CDs and DVDs, saving time and money over traditional paper labelling. This eliminates peeling paper labels which reduces the likelihood of drive and player error. "

When used with an inkjet duplicator or printer, Imation printable optical media discs produce multiple custom-printed CDs and DVDs for promotional material, catalogues, audio/visual productions, home movies, wedding albums, special events, model portfolios, training manuals and student or faculty files.

The new portfolio includes DVD+/- R 8 x White Inkjet 30 pack spindle, DVD+/-R 8x 10 pack slim line, CD-R 10 pack and 10 pack slim line, plus 50 pack spindle. The CDs are now available and the DVDs will be available from 1st March 2006.
