Moser Baer receives Blu-Ray product verification


    Mumbai: Moser Baer has received product verification from the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) for its next generation Blu-Ray 1x-6x discs. With this certification, Moser Baer has become the first company outside Japan to develop and ship BDR 1x-6x media.

    This latest innovation from Moser Baer has come in close partnership with OM&T, its Netherlands-based subsidiary. These Blu-Ray 1x-6x discs have also been accepted by the Blu-ray Disc Association as test discs to check the performance of Blu-Ray 1x-6x media in various BD drives being manufactured globally.

    The Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA) is responsible for promoting and developing business opportunities for Blu-Ray disc, the next-generation optical disc format for storing high definition films, games, photographs and other digital content. The association has more than 180 members.

    "This is yet another breakthrough for us in technology development of high definition optical media formats. The BDR market is currently witnessing development in 1x-4x recording speeds but our R&D strengths have once again enabled to take the lead in technological innovation and in setting new benchmarks. Our partnership with OM&T, a leading player in the test disc market, has been instrumental in this development and this will further enhance our global leadership position," said Moser Baer executive director Ratul Puri.

    OM&T business head Jan Van den Brink said; "Moser Baer has also successfully demonstrated the feasibility of this media for recording at a higher speed of 8x to the BDA global standards body. It is yet another example of pioneering developments that have enabled Moser Baer to emerge as a preferred supplier to all global OEM brands."

    The next generations BD Formats have a capacity ranging from 25 GB to 50 GB and offer more than five to ten times the data storage capacity of standard DVD media. These next generation formats offer an ideal solution for reliable business backup, including medical and government imaging, photography, videography, as well as high definition recording. The BDR 1x-6x enables customers to have a faster media recording. Typically, this will allow a two-hour transmission equivalent of HD (High Definition) quality video or data to be recorded in less than 20 minutes.
