Blu-ray camcorder media hits the streets

Protective coating a standard feature

TDK Life on Record has expanded its range of Blu-ray removable media with the release of 8cm, single-sided, 7.5GB capacity camcorder media in both recordable and re-writable formats offering up to 60 minutes of full HD recording.

TDK Life on Record's marketing and communications manager, Bree McKenzie, said the company's Blu-ray media can handle the "rigours and demands" of camcorder use without the threat of damage and loss of recorded material.

"The launch of Blu-ray camcorder media is significant in today's high definition environment and for TDK Life on Record it's [the] first to meet the market's demand for HD data storage media for BD Camcorders," McKenzie said.

"The new BD camcorder range means precious video content can be captured in digital HD and safely stored for future viewing. Only TDK can guarantee maximum reliability and archival lifespan of their media thanks to the advantage of DURABIS, a revolutionary protective coating which is a standard feature of all Blu-ray media produced by the company."

McKenzie is confident Blu-ray will replace conventional DVD globally, and said the format growing rapidly in Japan where it now has an 18 percent share of the home media market.

The write once media are $39.95 and the re-writable are $49.95 each.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
