The 5X DVD-RAM is ideally suited for multimedia storage, data transfer, and high-capacity archival storage. "More and more people are turning to DVD media as a way to store and archive critical digital information," Peter Brinkman, Maxell Corporation of America's vice president of marketing, said.
DVD-RAM is an advanced recording media format that offers a range of digital-data applications. Its phase-change recording material allows discs to be rewritten and erased up to 100,000 times, and a superior defect-management system ensures accurate recording and playback. DVD-RAM allows instant, random access to any location on the disc for fast and easy data reading and writing. It's also an extremely easy-to-use medium. Changes can be made directly on the disc without the need to transfer data to a hard disk first, thus speeding up editing tasks.
