Verbatim is offering a new family of DigitalMovie 1x-4x speed DVD recordable media that combines the unique look of a movie reel with high-quality 4x speed.
Like Verbatim's Digital Vinyl CD-R discs that look like 45-rpm records, the new movie reel DVD discs offer a similar nostalgic appeal to users. These are available in 3-packs with a choice of 4.7GB DVD-R or DVD+R media packaged in clear DVD Super Jewel Box cases.
In addition to giving personal videos the realistic look of a classic Hollywood movie reel, the discs are ideal for backing up DVD video titles and transferring videotapes to optical media that won't degrade over time. Consumers also can use the discs with compatible personal video recorders to standardize the look of their recorded videos in clear, DVD video-sized jewel boxes.
Verbatim DigitalMovie DVD-R and DVD+R media are expected to have a street price of about $11.99 per 3-pack and were set for fall availability.
In other news from Verbatim, the company is shipping 8x-speed DataLifePlus 4.7GB DVD+R media, concurrent with wider availability of higher speed DVD multi-format burners.
At 8x-speed, a 4.7GB DVD+R disc can be filled to capacity in less than 10 minutes, which allows consumers and small businesses to save a tremendous amount of time recording content to media compatible with the widest range of DVD set-top players and computer DVD-ROM drives in use today.
The DataLifePlus 8x DVD+R media has an estimated street price of $3.99.
