TDK beats all others to the finish line in shipping Blu-ray media

TDK Corporation announced today that it has begun shipping Blu-ray recordable media to retailers across the United States. The first wave of media will include 25GB BD-R (recordable) and BD-RE (rewritable) media.

This media is single-layered 25GB capacity.  TDK plans to ship dual layer media at 25GB per layer later this year as Blu-ray drives and set top recorders start becoming available. According to the press release, TDK's Blu-ray discs are manufactured at its Chikumagawa Techno Factory in Japan. The manufacturing process is much very different compared to that of CDs and DVDs.  TDK claims:

The high-sensitivity inorganic recording material utilized by TDK for the write-once type BD-R is completely different than the recording materials used for CD or DVD. TDK Blu-ray Discs’ inorganic material is impervious to light, making the discs exceptionally well suited for archiving data. Composed of copper and silicon, TDK’s exclusive CuSi recording material delivers remarkable, long-lasting performance. The recording material enables fast recording and playback speeds and also makes it possible to realize massive capacities through multi-layering.

Additionally, TDK has included its hard coating formulation called DURABIS for added protection to the media. Pricing on the media has also been released for the BD-R and BD-RE at $19.99 and $24.99 respectively. Later this year, TDK will ship the 50GB media at $47.99 for the BD-R media and $59.99 for the BD-RE media.
