On May 24, 2007, Taiyo Yuden announced the introduction of the new That’s “Triple Guard” DVD-R product series.
The triple protection of the recording side is achieved by three components:
- Scratch guard: 200x more durable to scratches than ordinary Taiyo Yuden DVD-R. Prevents accidental scratches that may occur while putting the disc into and getting it out of the case or drive.
- Fingerprint protection: The stickiness on the Triple Guard surface is less than 1/7 of the stickiness on normal Taiyo Yuden DVD-R.
- Static protection: 1000x more static electric discharge, compared to normal Taiyo Yuden DVD-R.
The new, inkjet-printable Triple Guard 16x DVD-R will be released to the market on June 12 in 10 slim jewel case packs and 50 disc cakeboxes, for both (CPRM) video and data usage.
Wow, that sounds really good. I hope they’d add some kind of sunlight filter as well, but then again they performed better in dvd-r.jpn.org’s sunlight test than in the scratch test.
(Don’t kick me if I misunderstood anything, I used a lot of Excite’s translation power… :o)
The PDF is a lot more detailed and contains a pic of the new packaging as well
Let’s hope that this media will hit the shores of Europe soon.
