Memory-Tech develops read-only disc supporting both DVD and HD-DVD

Posted on Wednesday, December 08 2004 @ 19:34:27 CET by

Memory-Tech will start mass production late next year of read-only discs that can contain data stored in both DVD and HD-DVDs (High Definition/High Density-DVDs) layers, a company executive says.

The new discs could help Hollywood studios and other content providers in their anticipated transition to the new HD-DVD format. HD-DVD is being developed to replace DVD for high-definition content.

The discs contain two layers, an upper DVD layer with a capacity of 4.7GB and a lower HD-DVD layer with a 15GB capacity, says Masato Otsuka, general manager of Memory-Tech's engineering department.

Mass production will start in October or November next year, which is about the same time as the company plans to produce read-only HD-DVDs. The company has six lines that can each produce up to 700,000 of these kinds of discs per month.
