Ritek M-DISC 4.7GB 10Pk – Lasts 1000 Years
Ritek M-DISC DVD is built to tough, protecting data from various environmental factors including light, heat or humidity. Moreover, M-DISC DVD will not degrade over time and is designed for everyday use. Its toughness and endurance have been well proven by multiple testing, including those performed by the U.S. Department of Defense. Those test result concludes that the M-Disc DVD will last for centuries.
Stability: M-DISC DVD uses a patented rock-like recording surface instead of traditional organic dye to etch your records.
Longevity: Up to 1,000 years
*According to accelerated aging experiments, DATA on M-DISC could be simulated to preserve in normal environment (25℃ / 50RH) for 1,000 years.
Engrave in Stone: When the data layer is written by a focused laser, the intense heat generated causes the innermost layers to melt and to move away from the laser spot, creating a hole in the data layer.
The Data Layer: The data layer is composed entirely by inorganic materials and compounds, including metals and metalloids.
M-DISC DVD can be read by most existing DVD drives or players.
*Because M-DISC DVD is manufactured by the newest technology, you need to use the M-DISC READY™ Drive to write your files. The M-DISC READY™ Drive is different from regular DVD writers because it is designed to make permanent physical changes (etching) to the rock-like data layer of the M-DISC™. Many computer manufacturers worldwide, such as LG, Acer, and Dell, already offer the M-DISC READY™ Drive as an option within their systems.
