Ricoh announces new MIJ 8x DVD+R DL media

04 June 2006



Japanese only, but here is a translation.



Ricoh on the 1st of June announced new 8x DVD+R DL Discs. These will be MIJ which makes Ricoh the first major producer to do so. Hope these disc will be better than the older Taiwan made Ricohs. If these should be of a high quality and be on par with the Verbatims, this would be great news, since then we would get new options besides the Verbatim and hopefully drive the price of good DL media down."


Ricoh announces a new lineup of 8x DVD+R DL which are made in Japan with a newly developed dye. These will become available from June 27th. They estimate to sell about 100000 units a month.


Characteristic's of the Discs: Full face printable. Printable area is: inner radius is 18mm and outer is 119mm New label for better picture quality when printing. New dye for 8x writing called Advanced SD Dye zeta+ (zeta plus, the official nake uses the greek letter for zeta) Produced using newly modified inverted stack method.


Produced at Ricoh Atsugi plant in Japan Ricoh at the same time announces new 8cm DVD-R/-RW discs.


This is good news indeed. Especially interesting to those of us that have inexpensive direct disc printers. With the hope of good quality and the possibility of further price reductions, through increased supply and competition. Already, dual layer media is becoming more attractive for archiving.
