HD DVD-Rs, followed by 2X BD-R on the way
Verbatim Corporation, a Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM) brand, announced July availability of HD DVD-R media in Japanese markets. The company then announced that it will be the first to offer 2X (72Mbps) single-layer 25GB Blu-Ray Recordable and Rewriteable media this July as well. Verbatim has not announced an estimated shp date for the US.
The 15GB HD DVD-R media will be thrown into production in the early part of July, however the press release says production of 30GB dual layer HD DVD-R media will begin this month.
Like its DVD-R counterparts, HD DVD-R media will feature the Metal AZO recording dye which Verbatim claims to be highly resistant to ultraviolet light and heat which can wear away at the media.
MKM HD DVD-R media is currently manufactured exclusively in the company's Singapore facility. The company's Blu-ray recordable media is manufactured exclusively at a facility in Mizushima, Japan. 30GB blue laser Ultra Density Optical (UDO) discs are also manufactured at the same Mizushima facility, and Verbatim employees assure us the transition from UDO-R to BD-R manufacturing is seamless and logical.
Pricing was not announced at time of publication.
LG just announced a 4X BD-R burner
, but as of now there is no 4X (144Mbps) BD-R media. Pioneer's Blu-ray recorder

Eek, my mistake. These are double-sided, not DL.
