Sony’s new AccuCORE technology for DVDs offers a number of benefits for storing and paying back recorded content.
Sony Electronics has announced a new development in recordable DVD media called AccuCORE technology. The new media is said to offer an enhanced level of recording accuracy, compatibility and reliability.
Sony’s new 16x DVD-R and DVD+R media marks the first new product introductions to feature AccuCORE, which will also be implemented in the company’s 8x recordable DVD products.
Users of discs with AccuCORE technology are expected to appreciate five key benefits: wider compatibility for DVD-R and DVD+R recordings with various types of drives or recorders at various speeds; faster addressing of the DVD-R format in high-speed dubbing and time-shift playback applications; stable writing capabilities for both DVD-R and DVD+R formats through reduced disc vibrations at high speeds; greater temperature adaptability for optimal performance during extended burning processes for all (DVD-R/-RW and DVD+R/+RW) formats; and improved archival reliability for long-term storage, also for all formats.
The first new products to feature AccuCORE technology, Sony’s new 16x DVD-R and DVD+R recordable consumer media, will almost double the recording speed over previous high-speed offerings. The 16x format will be able to burn a full length (4.7 GB) DVD in approximately six minutes (with 16x compatible drive).
The 16x DVD-R and DVD+R discs with AccuCORE technology will be available in February. Both will have a suggested retail price of $16.99 for a package of 10 discs.
