<p>The Double Layer DVD+R technology was developed by Verbatim in collaboration with Philips and other DVD+RW Alliance members. The new 2.4x DVD+R DL media has already been certified by Philips Format Verification Laboratory as fully compliant with the DVD+R DL standard. To ensure compliance with the Alliance’s DVD+R DL standard, the Philips certification process involves extensive testing of pre-recorded disc parameters, write strategies, and read performance of recorded discs. The certification provides drive manufacturers and end users with the assurance that Verbatim’s new DVD+R DL media delivers broad compatibility with new DVD+R DL drives and existing DVD playback devices.</p>
<p>The new 2.4x DVD+R media nearly doubles the storage capacity on DVD recordable discs from 4.7GB to 8.5GB on a single side while maintaining compatibility with existing DVD video players and DVD-ROM drives. With Verbatim’s new DVD+R DL discs, consumers will be able to record up to four hours of DVD-quality video or up to 16 hours of VHS video quality on a single disc.</p>
