The BD-R LTH Type uses Verbatim´s AZO organic dye technology, which ensures perfect recording quality and long term reliability. It has a long archival life and is protected by, Verbatim´s Hard Coat technology, a special scratch protection layer that safeguards the disc from scratches, fingerprints or dust, thereby helping to avoid recording or playback errors.

“Just as DVD technology followed CDs, Blu-ray is the next generation of optical media, offering significant benefits for recording and archiving needs. And with the ever increasing quantities of data being generated by users today, the enormous capacity of the Blu-ray format is a compelling argument. For CD-Rs and DVD-Rs, we’ve already been the world market leader for years.

We’re now harnessing the wealth of experience we have gained in the development of successful optical storage media to produce our new Blu-ray with AZO technology and are the first to launch this global innovation onto the market. We want to contribute our technological expertise to every sector, and with this new Blu-ray we are taking a giant step towards the future,” says Torsten Leye, Marketing Manager Optical at Verbatim EUMEA.
