Maxell PD-50DL Features

  • 50GBCapacity: Blue-violet laser powered recording, with an extremely short wavelength, maximizes data storage to a whopping 50 gigabytes.
  • Laser-Cutting-Control Technology: An ultra-low-pitch data track is realized with high-precision laser-cutting-control technology; a track pitch of a mere 0.32im (less than half that of DVD-R's 0.74im) is achieved while the integrity of the grooves are maintained.
  • High-Speed Data Transfer: High-sensitivity phase change materials and optimized layer structuring allows high-speed transfer rates of ~86Mbps for recording and ~126Mbps for playback.
  • Protective Layer: This disc achieves a durable recording surface with greatly enhanced resistance to dust and scratching, developed for professional-use discs. It employs a high precision cartridge to protect against dust and handling errors caused by excessive use.
  • Long-Term Storage Capability: Long-term storage capability of over 50 years and disc can be re-recorded up to 1,000 times without any significant changes.
