HHB Communications, a supplier of professional recording media, recently introduced of a new range of 1X-8X speed DVD+R and DVD-R recordable discs. Whether using a professional DAW, personal computer or a stand-alone DVD recorder, this latest generation of HHB recordable media provides plug-and-play compatibility with a vast array of professional and consumer DVD devices.
With consistently low block error rates and ultra-low jitter performance, HHB DVD media combines superb performance with absolute security. HHB’s new recordable DVD media employ an azo dye formulation, which regulates and ensures a secure archival life of more than 70 years.
Full metallization of the entire surface of the disc yields a greater printable area, and allows superb color matching even in the hub area of the disc. Available in both inkjet and thermal-printable versions, HHB’s new DVD media delivers “perfect whiteness” and printing definition, plus compatibility with an extremely wide range of printers. Each disc type endures a spinning process to ensure a bubble-free bond between the polycarbonate layers of the disc.
The range consists of four disc types: DVD-R4.7GB-G (single, library-packed general-type with an inkjet-printable surface); DVD-R4.7GB-GBulkIP (50 disc cakepack of general-type with an inkjet-printable surface); DVD-R4.7GB-GBulkThermal (50 disc cakepack of general-type with thermal-printable surface); and DVD+R4.7GB-Plus (single, library-packed general-type conforming to the DVD+R format, with an inkjet-printable surface).
Similar to HHB’s 1X-4X DVD discs, each of the new 1X-8X discs is registered with major DVD hardware manufacturers to ensure that the signal characteristics of the drive’s laser are optimized for error-free recording.
HHB managing director, Ian Jones, commented, “We’re delighted that our new 1X-8X discs now offer an even greater level of compatibility with a wide range of DVD hardware. When combined with the security and reliability that HHB media products are renowned for, we believe that these discs represent the only serious choice for professional audio and video applications.”
