[I]Singapore, 10 March 2010[/I] - Anwell Technologies Limited (â€œAnwellâ€ or the â€œGroupâ€), a global supplier of advanced manufacturing equipment and process technologies for optical media, OLED and solar industries is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Umedisc Limited, has received product verification from the International Blu-ray Disc Association for the LTH (â€œlow to highâ€) Blu-ray recordable (â€œBD-Râ€) 4x and HTL (â€œhigh to lowâ€) BD-R 4x products manufactured at its manufacturing plant in Henan, China. LTH and HTL are different manufacturing processes of BD-R, offering different advantages and characteristics for the OEM customers.
By satisfying all the requirements of the verification, Anwellâ€™s products have passed the tests set up by Blu-ray Disc Association. Henceforth, Anwell will have its own unique Manufacturing Identity Code registered under the Association. Anwellâ€™s strong equipment R&D capability built over the years allows the Group to modify its existing range of CD-R and DVD-R manufacturing equipment into new BD-R manufacturing equipment. The flexibility and investment cost-savings will enhance the Groupâ€™s competitiveness in the BD-R generation.
â€œWe are delighted to join the elect list of only four manufacturers able to offer both HTL and LTH BD-R products to our customers. The Groupâ€™s continual investments in R&D have once again borne fruit granting us a clear route into the BD-R. By leveraging on the sales channels built up from our sales of DVD-R products and our low cost production base in
China, we intend to ride on the strong growth momentum for Blu-ray products in the next few years.â€
