- Cyanine discs are compatible with a wide range of laser powers.
Phthalocyanine dye(Light Green)
- Phthalocyanine dye requires higher laser powers.
Why you ask do i bring this pointer up about the two different dyes… Well over the years in my CD-R Ventures i have worked with both dyes and have seen a major incompatiblity issue using the Phthalocyanine based dye in many home theatre dvd players and console units due to the Requirement that the Phthalocyanine dye puts forward in it’s need for higher powered lasers which home dvd players and consoles do no have like your computer cd-rom units do therefore i have been forced to use Cyanine based dye CD-R’s when dealing with Home theatre dvd players and consoles.
My Question is what companies manufacture CD-R’s that have the standard of using only a Cyanine based dye with an excellent quality top coating (Branded) for writing on and withstanding storage in a cd booklet under friction conditions?
