LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling Announces Worldwide Availability of Color-Background DVDs
Posted Jul 8, 2008

LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling announced today that LightScribe-enabled DVDs are now available worldwide in five new vivid color-background DVDs for LightScribe images: red, orange, yellow, blue and green. With the five rich and saturated background colors, consumers can add even more individuality, creativity and flair to their customized LightScribe DVD labels, just as they have with CDs.

 Precise, silkscreen-quality black text and graphics labels can be burned onto the label-side of LightScribe-enabled stunning, jewel-toned background color DVDs. In addition to the distinctive, visual impact, the color-backgrounds make it easier to organize a collection of music, photos, videos, or file backups.

The color-background DVDs as well as color background CDs, are offered by leading media brands, including Aleratec, HP, Imation, Memorex, Philips, Primeon and Verbatim.

All LightScribe-enabled disc drives on the market today are color-background media ready. The color-background DVD and CDs are compatible with existing LightScribe-enabled drives and labeling software after a simple download of an updated driver file from The color-background DVDs and CDs have image contrast comparable to those of the gold-background discs.

"Customers tell us they love the color background CDs launched last year," said Kent Henscheid, marketing manager for LightScribe. "That media constitutes a significant proportion of all LightScribe CD media, and it was logical to fill out the LightScribe DVD lineup with color background technology as well. We expect these DVDs to be available in more and more channels worldwide."

LightScribe-enabled CDs, DVDs, software, desktops, notebooks, optical disc drives and duplicator systems are available at major retailers, as well as online. More information on where to buy LightScribe discs is available at
