TDK, Rimage unveil thermal printable Blu-ray discs

Posted by iTech - 2006-04-27

MANHASSET, N.Y. — TDK and Rimage Corp. have introduced what they claim are the first thermal printable BD-R Blu-ray Disc media.

Using a DVD/CD compatible thermal printer from Rimage, users can print custom text and graphics directly on each disc's label-side surface. The discs, incorporating TDK's advanced Durabis 2 hard coating technology, are on display at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas April 24 through 27.

Japan-based TDK has partnered with Rimage (Minneapolis) to optimize its printable surface BD-R media for use with Rimage's thermal BD-R disc publishing solutions.

"Our partnership with TDK will enable Rimage to offer its customers the ideal printable BD-R media," noted Manny Almeida, chief operating officer for Rimage. "We've worked with TDK to ensure that TDK Thermal Printable BD-R media is perfectly optimized to deliver failsafe recording and the highest possible printing quality with Rimage's soon to be released BD-R thermal disc publishing and duplication systems.

The media is coated with a special thermal-optimized surface that not only delivers extremely bright, high-resolution full color images and text, but also prevents warping - a potential problem with standard thermal surfaces. The printable surface extends from the outside edge of the media all the way to the center hub for a fully produced, highly professional appearance. Wide sputtering and the absence of a stacking ring make printing quality consistent across the entire disc surface, from edge to edge.

TDK will offer single-layer BD-R (write-once type) thermal printable Blu-ray Discs featuring 25GB capacity the third quarter of 2006. In the third quarter, TDK will also introduce dual-layer BD-R 50GB thermal printable Blu-ray Discs.
