Oerlikon to install first Blu-ray line in Europe

German optical disc manufacturer Infodisc received delivery of the first BD ROM manufacturing line Indigo in Western Europe. The Oerlikon Blu-ray replication line will be installed in the coming days at the Renchen/Germany facility.

Infodisc will offer its services as the first independent European Blu-ray manufacturer, which is not contractually tied to a particular Hollywood movie studio. As a pioneer in the Blu-ray production technology, Infodisc will share its experience with other replicators and serve as a showcase for the Oerlikon Blu-ray line Indigo.

Oerlikon is working with Sony DADC to develop a wet embossing process for production of the new 50GB dual layer Blu-ray format to be launched later this year.
