Memorex launched new CD and DVD discs with a 24-karat gold reflective layer, high performance dye and its DuraLayer scratch-resistant technology. The Memorex Pro Gold Archival CD and DVD Media come with a lifetime warranty and they are specifically designed for archiving data.
Memorex Pro Gold Archival Media is the ultimate solution for securely
recording and archiving critical data and precious memories. The 24-karat
gold reflective layer provides maximum resistance to aging and chemical
breakdown, and the high performance dye is extremely stable and ideal for
long-term storage. Memorex's innovative DuraLayer technology is a special
scratch-resistant hard coating that further protects the discs from dust,
debris and rough handling. Memorex offers Pro Gold Archival Media in CD-R and
DVD-R formats, making them the ideal choice for long-term archival of
important data, photos, music and home movies.
Pro Gold Archival Media is also uniquely suited for professionals in need
of a long-term archival solution for medical, legal, accounting, law
enforcement or other government records. For software, music and video
producers, Pro Gold discs truly serve as the ultimate medium for gold master
These innovative discs are proven to last up to six times longer than
traditional media with a CD archival life of up to 300 years and a DVD
archival life of up to 100 years. Laboratory tests prove Memorex Pro Gold
Media to be resistant to the effects of rapid, artificial aging such as
ultraviolet light, heat and humidity exposure thanks in part to gold's inert
characteristics that prevent oxidation, a common cause of failure for most
recordable media during long-term storage.
Memorex Pro Gold CD-R discs record at 52X speed and feature 700MB of data
storage or 80 minutes of audio recording time. Memorex Pro Gold DVD-R discs
record at 8X speed and hold 4.7GB of data or 120 minutes of video.
Memorex Pro Gold Media will be on display this evening at the Digital
Experience media event at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
