Ritek Announces 8cm Recordable DVDs
Ritek announced last week they finished the mass production process of 8cm write once DVD in both DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL formats.

Featuring two recording layers on a single side, these two new discs provide nearly one hour of digital video recording time or 2.6GB of storage capacity on a single side of mini DVD disc.

"We are aware of the increasing sales of DVD Camcorders worldwide but the current single layer or double sided 8cm DVD cannot meet customers expectation perfectly because of their limited recording time. So we foresee the potential huge demand if customers can record their video nearly one hour without changing or flipping the DVD discs," said Eric Chang, RITEK Global Marketing Deputy General Manager.

The new Ritek DVD+R DL and DVD-RL discs will be available by end of January 2007.
