Designed to take maximum advantage of today’s high-resolution 4800 and higher dpi inkjet CD/DVD printers and autoloading systems, Verbatim’s new Inkjet Hub-printable DVD+/-R discs feature an exceptional inkjet-printable surface that provides superior ink absorption and excellent drying properties.

The discs have been extensively tested and qualified for use with new systems offered by leading duplication system manufacturers, including 3 picoliter inkjet printers that deliver superior label image quality.
The media’s high-speed recording will also benefit organizations that want a fast, reliable and cost-effective solution for limited distribution of high-quality training and marketing videos.

“By combining high-speed 8x writing with our new edge-to-edge printable surface, Verbatim inkjet-printable discs will help businesses and DVD content developers reduce their production time while creating truly attention-grabbing discs,” said Ron Hanafin, Verbatim Product Marketing Manager. “The new ultra-white printing surface accentuates the label design. In addition, a fast-drying surface means content developers, duplication service bureaus and businesses can distribute professional-looking content quickly, reliably and economically using the latest in autoloader based printing systems”
To achieve recording speeds of up to 8x without sacrificing reliability, the new media features the proprietary Advanced Azo™ recording layer developed by Verbatim’s parent company, Mitsubishi® Kagaku Media (MKM). Fine-tuned to produce an improved power margin and greater sensitivity, the Metal Azo recording layer technology optimizes read/write performance and produces a superior archival life.
