One of TDKs new prototype 200GB blue laser discs stores approximately 18 hours of high definition video (encoded at 24Mbps). These massive capacity discs are suited for backing up HD editing sessions and archives.
TDK was the first company to ship Blu-ray Discs with its April 2006 introduction of 25GB BD-R and BD-RE media, and is now being honored with an Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Award from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) for its TDK 25GB BD-R Blu-ray Disc media. TDK will begin shipping 50GB Blu-ray Discs in the first quarter of 2007 and TDK Thermal and Inkjet Printable BD-R will begin shipping in the second quarter of 2007.
In 2007, TDK will also debut 8cm Mini Blu-ray Disc media. Mini BD-R and Mini BD-RE utilize a single-layer recording material structure and feature 7.5GB storage capacity. The discs are suited for use in combination with the upcoming generation of Blu-ray Disc camcorders. The discs will also provide compatibility with Blu-ray drives.
Snap N' Save Storage
At CES, TDK will exhibit DVD and CD media in Snap N Save cases. Offering a combination of robust disc protection and compact media storage, Snap N' Save cases snap closed, securely protecting your discs by sealing out dirt, dust and other contaminants that can have a negative impact on media performance. A new alternative to disc spindles, Snap N' Save cuts down on case clutter, enables storing multiple disc sets together for superior organization.
