Introducing the PlayO 8X Double Layer DVD+R and the 8X Printable Double Layer DVD +R by Abcron

Large Storage Capacity DVDs Featuring Double-Layer Technology

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., December 5, 2006 –Abcron Corporation today announced two new additions to its comprehensive line of optical media products; the PlayO 8X Double Layer DVD +R and the PlayO 8X Printable Double Layer DVD +R.

Recording at 8X speed, these new large 8.5 GB storage capacity discs enable data to be recorded or read on one layer without affecting the other layer in order to enable long-time music streaming potential. These discs are ideal for users who record extra-long movies since they do not require users to compress or delete scenes and extras, and they record twice as fast as typical 4X discs. The PlayO 8X double layer discs store up to four hours of DVD-quality video, 16 hours of VHS-quality video, or over 120 hours of MP3 audio.

Additionally the PlayO 8X Printable Double Layer DVD + R includes a printable feature that enables users to print vibrant, full color images directly onto the complete surface of the discs. These discs are compatible with a wide range of leading inkjet printers.
“These products are ideal for power and professional users,” stated Andy Huang, Vice President of Abcron Corporation. “The 8X PlayO Double Layer DVD +R offers a large 8.5GB storage capacity and the fastest burn of any double layer disc currently on the market.” Added Huang, “The PlayO Double Layer DVD +R inkjet white printable version enables consumers to create crisp print images on the discs which is ideal for users like small businesses, graphic artists and photo archivers.”

The new PlayO 8X double-layer discs feature excellent compatibility with current DVD-based video players, game consoles, and DVD-ROM drives as well as DVD+R DL drives.
The 10-pack PlayO 8X Double Layer DVD +R product retails for $19.99 and the 10 pack PlayO 8X Printable Double Layer DVD +R retails for $24.99. Both products are available through select online retailers.
