Imation's new 4x write-once DVD+R media features the fastest recording speed of any current DVD format, according to the company, and supports 1x, 2.4x and 4x write speeds.
With the ability to record at 4x speed, a 4.7GB write-once DVD+R disc can be recorded to full capacity in less than 15 minutes.
Due to its high capacity, density and data-transfer rate, the Imation 4x write-once DVD media is ideal for massive data storage and retrieval, and long-term data archival of video, photo, music and data files.
The product began shipping in the past few months, but retails have not been confirmed and will not be available until the end of the month.
Imation also has made some additions to its line of CD-RW media. The new 4x-16x High-Speed CD-RW and 8x-24x Ultra-Speed CD-RW discs are rewritable CDs that feature 650MB of data storage, an increased recording speed and totally noise-free playback.
The 4x-16x High-Speed CD-RW and 8x-20x Ultra-Speed CD-RW are only compatible for recording with the latest CD-RW drives, which feature their respective High-Speed or UltraSpeed logos.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
