Verbatim intros 100GB Blu-ray recordable discs

Verbatim has launched a Blu-ray Disc to run on BDXL-compatible readers and writers with a super-sized 100GB of storage capacity – four times higher than storage on a standard recordable Blu-ray Disc.

Certified by the BDA (Blu-ray Disc Association), the high capacity recordable Blu-ray Discs from Verbatim enable users to backup high resolution photography, music or HD video files at 4x write speed. With 100GB storage, the BDXL discs can approximately store over 40,000 photos, 20,000 songs or 8 hours of HD video.

 “Verbatim’s 100GB BDXL Blu-ray Discs are ideal for dealing with image or file production that need high-capacity discs for archiving purposes,” explains Ramesh Tuli, Country Manager India at Verbatim. “Consumers can rely on meticulous quality controls during our manufacturing process to ensure Verbatim’s Blu-ray products will never fail to disappoint. Backed by the expertise of Verbatim’s parent company Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), Verbatim remains the number one optical storage media brand worldwide.”

 Standard Blu-ray Discs provide storage capacities of 25GB for a single-layer disc and 50GB for a dual-layer disc, but Verbatim’s BDXL disc includes a third layer to give it a storage capacity of 100GB. The discs come with a specialised hard coat surface to protect them against scratches.

BDXL 100GB Blu-ray Discs will be available to buy across India in October.
