Imagine being able to record 4 hours instead of 2 hours
of the highest quality DVD video on a disc. Or to store
8.5 gigabytes, equaling about 12 fully recorded CD-Rs, instead
of 4.7 gigabytes, on a single sided DVD.
All this is possible, here and now, with the advent of
DVD+R Double Layer recording technology. Based on the proven
double layer technology that has been used in DVD-Video
for many years, DVD+R DL amost doubles the recording capacity
when compared to traditional DVD recording media. And because
the disc is single sided, there’s no need to flip
it over halfway through playback or recording.
But the best thing is, you can play a DVD+R DL disc in
your current DVD-Video player, DVD games console, or DVD-ROM
equipped PC. Double layer playback has been part of the
DVD format since the beginning, so most existing DVD playback
equipment has no problem playing the new high capacity DVD+R
The only thing you need to store these huge quantities
of data or long video recording times is a DVD+R DL capable
DVD rewriter and the new sophisticated DVD+R DL media. Currently,
more than a dozen manufacturers already offer DVD+R DL capable
drives. And these drives are backward compatible, they let
you record DVD+RW and single layer DVD+R media.
