"Imation's Blu-ray media with AquaGuard technology is the perfect
disc," said James Milligan, General Manager, Commercial/OEM Division,
Imation Corp. "We've designed each side of the disc for professional use.
The data side features high capacity and scratch resistance. The inkjet
printable side allows for creation of custom, water-resistant printed
images and text. When used with Primera's industry-leading disc publishers,
users can quickly and easily create high-quality, cutting-edge Blu-ray disc
projects with ease."
Imation's Inkjet Printable BD-R discs with AquaGuard surface are ideal
for a variety of advanced applications such as the creation of
high-definition video recordings, game development for systems like
PlayStation(R) 3, and the post production of digital movies. Capable of
storing up to 25GB of digital files, the media's AquaGuard technology
offers a brilliant white, smear- and water-resistant inkjet printable disc
surface for professional disc prints. Featuring proprietary nanoparticle
technology, the AquaGuard coating grips and holds ink to lock designs in
place, unlike standard inkjet media that easily smears when exposed to
moisture. Additionally, Imation's innovative AquaGuard technology is a 2007
CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree.
"Adding Imation's AquaGuard surface to Blu-ray disc media is a
technology breakthrough," said Mark Strobel, Vice President, Sales and
Marketing, Primera Technology. "Users who have been quick to adopt Blu-ray
technology know that the media is ideal for a variety of high-capacity
applications. A water- resistant, inkjet printable surface for the discs
ensures that media produced with Primera's Bravo XR-Blu and Bravo SE Blu
Disc Publishers will continue to have a high-quality, professional
appearance even when exposed to the elements." Primera Technology, Inc. is
the world's leading manufacturer of automated disc publishing equipment.
Imation Inkjet Printable BD-R Media with AquaGuard technology is now
shipping to authorized Imation distributors for a manufacturer's suggested
retail price of $24.99 for a single disc with jewel case. Primera also
sells the media with its Blu-ray-enabled disc publishers.
