announced today a new family of DigitalMovie 1x-4x speed DVD Recordable media with the unique look of a movie reel. Verbatim DigitalMovie discs are available in 3-packs with a choice of 4.7GB DVD-R or DVD+R media packaged in clear DVD Super Jewel Box cases: "In addition to giving personal videos the realistic look of a classic Hollywood movie reel, the discs are ideal for backing up DVD video titles and transferring video tapes to optical media that won't degrade over time."
Designed to fit easily in most DVD video racks, the Super Jewel Box measures
7.5" x 5.6" x 0.4"--the same height as a VHS cassette and the same thin profile
as a standard jewel case. The Super Jewel Box is manufactured with a crystal-clear polystyrene material that is more durable than a standard jewel case. With clear visibility of all four spines, users can easily read the DVD label without opening the case.
Verbatim DigitalMovie 4x DVD+R and DVD-R discs are based on MKM's Metal Azo recording dye technology which produces recordings with greater power margin and better sensitivity than earlier-generation 2x DVD recordable discs, ensuring the same accuracy achieved by other discs at 1-2.4x recording speeds. Consumers can also use the discs with compatible personal video recorders (PVRs) to standardize the look of their recorded videos in clear, DVD video-sized jewel boxes."
Verbatim DigitalMovie DVD-R and DVD+R media are
expected to have a street price of about $12 per 3-pack and will be available
