The discs will have a street price of under $20 per 10-pack.
Ridata Hard Coated, Double Sided, Mini DVD-R features a 4X recording speed and each side can record up to 1.46GB.This creates storage for up to 60 minutes of Audio & Video recording time virtually eliminating the need to carry numerous discs. For security, the information on the DVD-R is permanently recorded (write-once) and cannot be altered or erased with an archival life span of over 100 years. The small discs are also compatible with DVD-ROM drives and DVD-Video players.
The special hard coating technology protects media against scratches that can occur when the discs are transferred between cases, camcorders, and DVD players. RIDATA Hard Coated, Double Sided, Mini DVD-R 4X media are up to 100 times more scratch resistant than standard optical discs and will easily wipe clean fingerprints, ink smudges, and accidental food or beverage spills. Hard Coating features rapid static discharge to aid in preventing dust from adhering to the disc. By reducing the amount of dust that contacts a camcorder's sensitive internal optics, Hard Coating helps maintain hardware performance and will aid in the longevity of a camcorder.
Furthermore, RIDATA Hard Coating Double Sided DVD media provides three times greater resistance to damaging UV light, more than any other DVD media available. Another key advantage of the double-sided discs' configuration is convenience. It allows users to read, write, or view nearly twice the amount of data than do single-sided DVD discs without having to change discs. It offers a widely compatible DVD backup and data archiving format for a variety of applications.
