““Thanks to the AZO recording technologies developed by our parent company Mitsubishi Kagaku Media, customers can be confident they have media of the highest quality,” says Torsten Leye, Marketing Manager Optical at Verbatim EUMEA. “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. 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 businesses today, the enormous capacity of the Blu-ray format is a compelling argument. We have been the world market leader for many years in CD-Rs and DVD-Rs*. 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,” added Leye
