San Jose, California (February 27, 2006) Verbatim Corporation, the market leader in premium-quality printable media, announced today a new family of glossy white inkjet printable 52X CDR and 16X DVD+/-R media. The new discs combine a shiny white printable surface and fast drying times with ultra-reliable, high-speed recording technology and broad read compatibility. With Verbatim's unique glossy media, users can make their recordings look distinctive with vibrant, full-color images and crystal-clear text. The next generation of photo and video storage media were unveiled at the PMA (Photo Marketing Association) Convention which began here yesterday.
The new glossy discs feature an exceptional inkjet-printable surface that provides superior ink absorption and excellent drying properties. When combined with any color inkjet printer, users can print photo-quality images directly to the disc surface to customize their CDs and DVDs.
The new media will meet the needs of individuals and businesses that want to produce professional-looking one-off and limited run video, photo, music, and/or data discs for sharing with friends and family or sales distribution. By combining the ultra-reliability of Verbatim's advanced CDR and DVD+/-R technologies with an innovative glossy inkjet-printable surface, users have the highest quality in both recording and print performance.
"Our new glossy discs have a high-sheen surface, similar to the glossy print paper photographers use," explained Ron Hanafin, Verbatim Product Marketing Manager. "The glossy finish takes printable media to the next level by enabling the reproduction of exceptionally vibrant, high-resolution images and graphics that come alive."
Verbatim's new glossy white inkjet-printable media will be available in April in spindle and slim jewel case configurations. Expected shelf pricing starts at $19.99 for the 20-pack of CD-Rs and $24.99 for the 20-pack of DVDRs.
