JVC Introducing ISO/IEC10995 Tested DVD-R
JVC Advanced Media U.S.A. Inc. introduces ISO/IEC10995 Tested DVD-R for long term archiving, the J-DMR-ISO-WPY25-HC.
These products are tested by a nonprofit organization and the test method complies with ISO/IEC10995, an industry standard in the world used to estimate archiving lifetime.
Long term archiving is achieved by the highest quality control and inspection frequencies techniques that are greater than what is used in the industry.
JVC Advanced Media has taken this issue, i.e. the retention of data for a long period of time or submission, as a social responsibility. The company has started developing products that comply with ISO/IEC10995, which defines the test method to estimate the archival lifetime of the DVDR.
'Archival Grade DVD-R' is manufactured by exclusive production lines in Japan. Quality control is set at the highest level and inspection frequency is approximately 10 times greater compared to standard products. This allows the minimum fluctuation of the products needed to meet users' strict storage requirements.
These products passed the ISO/IEC10995, an accelerated aging test method used for estimating the lifetime expectancy for retrieving information stored on recordable or rewritable optical disc covering DVD formats such as DVD-R/+R. The testing was done by a nonprofit organization called ADTC. The method is more strict as compared to the testing most optical manufacturers are doing using an average of the result. ISO/IEC10995 defines that 95% of the discs have to survive at the condition of 25C/50%RH. (This condition is equivalent to over thirty years of archiving lifetime.)
Technologies to support long term archiving
Our Archival Grade DVD-R is a newly-developed product and incorporates high level of technologies and production experience spanning over twenty years. The process uses specially developed silver-alloy as a reflective layer and organic dye with in-house developed additives to secure long term data retention. These materials are selected for use to assure the low occurrence of writing error for long term archiving. Furthermore, the product meets the standards of migration method for archival data storage using DVD formats such as ISO/IEC29121, JIS Z6019 and DA/T38.
