<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.

<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.
