Mitsui Advanced Media Launches Worlds First 24x CD-R Media. -
The Mitsui SG Ultra II CD-R enables users with access to the new 24x CD writers, launched this month, to record a full 650Mb onto disc in just three minutes. Mitsui Advanced Media is the only manufacturer whose 24x media is available today and its compatible with all reader and writer combination.
24x technology is the latest development in the media industry to enable the
rapid and accurate recording of data onto CD. Increasing media write speeds to
24x enables users to record a full disc in a few minutes compared to the full
hour that was required at the basic 1x speed. While other media manufacturers
need to reformulate their CD-Rs to accommodate faster drives, the flexibility
and durability of Mitsuis Phthalocyanine dye technology has enabled the Company
to be first to market with 24x media.
Mitsui claim their Phthalocyanine dye prolongs the life of any CD-R drive, as it is more transparent than alternative Azo or Cyanine dyes, using less laser power each time a disk is recorded. Phthalocyanine is also claimed to offer better heat and UV resistance of up to 200 days direct exposure, while the Diamond Coat Protection ensures complete scratch resistance.
The super sensitivity of Phthalocyanine dye means that each Mitsui CD-R is recorded with greater accuracy; sharper pit edges on the burnt CD-R are easier for a CD drive to read and deliver crystal clear sound or data quality.
"Mitsui CD-Rs are known for their universal compatibility, reliability and durability by professional users worldwide," commented Greg Boyer, Product Manager, Mitsui Advanced Media. "Mitsui Advanced Media has always been recognised for its quality and performance in the digital media industry and we continue to lead the way as the first manufacturer to offer 24x certified CD-R media."
The Mitsui SG Ultra II CD-R is now available from Mitsui Advanced Media
distributors around the UK priced at 60p. For further details visit www.mitsuimedia.co.uk.
