Intro.
A new blu era dawns
A lot is being said and written about new high definition
technology. Our objective here is to explain what’s it’s main
benefits to the world are, and to explain why you’ll need
the Blu-ray Disc from TDK Life on Record to make the most
of them.
The world of DVD has been the most successful since the
VHS cassette, but we are now in the era of High Definition.
The shift to HD technology, brings new benefits to pretty
much all of us through High Definition Television (HDTV),
high capacity data storage, high intensity video games, and
better image quality and sound home film entertainment.
HDTV offers 1080 lines of resolution, versus 576 lines PAL,
and 480 lines for regular NTSC signals. The extra lines based
on bit rates (transfer data rates) mean a better, sharper,
more highly defined image reproduction.
All these additional image details, definition and data require
a far greater storage capacity to keep them safe and secure,
and that’s why you’ll need the incredible Blu-ray Discs from
TDK Life on Record.

History.
03.
TDK recording media were the first to market with bare Bluray Disc media, revolutionary single sided discs that are
cartridge free thanks to the unique Durabis2 protective
hard coat finish.
Single layer 25GB discs and dual layer 50GB products are
available now, whilst TDK continue to drive forward the
frontiers still further. An astonishing 100GB disc is already
in development alongwith with faster transfer times.
You can trust TDK Life on Record as always to deliver the
highest quality, most cutting edge storage media solutions,
whatever the format or generation.
Blu-ray Discs are the latest in a proud line of TDK recording
media break throughs in a distinguished 70 year history.

The arrival of the Blu-ray Disc meets an emerging need for
greater storage capacity ushered in by a series of recent
developments in the world of media that are set to change
it for us all in the years ahead.
Introducing
the TDK Life

Blu-ray Disc
Probedruck
First to meet that need is TDK Recording Media: a household
name in recording media for over a generation. Many of
you will remember TDK recording media as the brand of
choice for you and your friends’ shared recordings when
you were growing up.
Today, as then, it’s TDK Life on Record leading the way in
this new era.
The TDK Life on record Blu-ray Disc is all about much more
storage capacity in the same physical space: but why are
we going to need it?

HDTV
High Definition Television (HDTV) is expected to replace
standard television in the coming years and is already
available on selected pay channels. Compared to the PAL
and SECAM formats, HDTV offers up to five times more
detail.
And as picture quality improves, the amount of storage
required to record such a high-resolution television signal
without loss of quality also increases.
Due to the large amount of television signal data, viewers
can only record approximately 20 minutes of programming
in HDTV quality on a conventional DVD.
Each 25GB disc gives 5x and 50GB Blu-ray Disc 10x the
storage of a conventional DVD, allowing for 2 hours HD
quality video recording for a 25GB disc.
High definition broadcasting which launched in Europe in
2004 is now on it’s way across Europe, in time it is expected
to reach throughout the continent. High Definition
broadcasting is already growing fast in the U.S. and Asia.
A short time from now we expect HD to have captured the
imaginations of Europe’s TV viewers. Their need to store
and share astonishing quality HD images and uncompressed
sound will be met by TDK Life on Record Blu-ray Discs.

Films
The Hollywood studios are actively backing the new world
of High Definition and the Blu-ray format and the roll out
of new Blu-ray film titles is gathering apace with full 1080p
resolution and 7.1 channel channel surround sound. It also
opens up the possibility of internet interactivity.

Now we’ve got our heads around what you do with a
Blu-ray Disc, it’s time to uncover how and why it works.
The Blue-violet laser
The Blu-ray Disc format utilises a blue-violet laser with a
shorter wavelength to enable higher storage capacities.
Compared to a CD with an infrared laser and a wavelength
of 780nm or a DVD with a red laser and a wavelength of
650nm, the Blu-ray Disc format utilises a blue-violet laser
with a wavelength of only 405nm. A nm is equal to a
millionth of a millimetre.
Due to the blue-violet laser's shorter wavelength, it is
possible to write smaller data pits and therefore to drastically
increase the data density on the Blu-ray.

The structural Design
of the Blu-ray Disc
The structure of a Blu-ray Disc differs fundamentally from
the structure of a CD or DVD.
The recording layer of the Blu-ray Disc is covered by a mere
0.1mm thin cover layer in order to achieve an optimal
distance between the data track and the drive's optical
system.
Blu-ray Disc: True high density recording.
A blue laser is used for Blu-ray as opposed to the red laser utilized for DVD.
BD Track pitch: 0.32μm
1μm ( = 0.001 mm )
Probedruck
DVD Track pitch: 0.74μm
1μm ( = 0.001 mm )
The combination of this special structure and the blueviolet laser allows for a very high data density. Compared
to the DVD with a data track pitch of 0.74μm, the Blu-ray
Disc's data tracks are located extremely close together with
a track pitch of 0.32μm (1μm=1/1000mm). The blue-violet
laser beam is only about one-fifth the size of the red laser
beam of a DVD and consequently achieves a 500% higher
data density.

New Spin Coating Technology
Conventional Spin Coating Method
A uniform protective coating.
The outer section becomes uneven.
High Precision Spin Coating:
for reliable performance
The recording layer of the Blu-ray Disc is located just under
the cover layer and is thus especially susceptible to
scratches. The cover layer is only 0.1mm thick and must
therefore be applied precisely and smoothly to the
Blu-ray Disc.
It’s vital to Blu-ray technology that the disc surface is
completely smooth and there are no protrusions which
could interfere with the laser reader.
Probedruck
tech01.
TDK recording media has optimised Spin Coating
technology in order to apply the cover layer smoothly and
precisely to the Blu-ray Disc. The curing resin protective
layer is applied in a liquid state to a rotating disc. As a result
of this coating process, a smooth cover layer with a precise
thickness of 0.1mm can be applied to the disc's entire
surface.
Thanks to the TDK recording media Spin Coating
technology, the coating of the TDK Life on Record Blu-ray
Disc is absolutely smooth.

DURABIS2 maximum protection
coating
Coating
The Blu-ray Disc standard requires that discs have a scratchfree protective layer. With the DURABIS2 coating, TDK Life
on Record has developed a protection technology that far
exceeds the standard requirements.
The first generation of the DURABIS coating has already
been used with our award-winning ScratchProof DVD
recordable media, itself 100 times more scratchproof than
ordinary DVD’s.
In order to meet the new challenges of the Blu-ray Disc, we
have developed the DURABIS2 protective layer, which is
an even more effective scratch-protection technology.
DURABIS2 technology means TDK Life on Record Blu-ray
Discs even withstand the steel wool test and are also dirt
and dust repellent. Even fingerprint smudges can't interfere
with the readability of the disc. With conventional discs,
fingerprints can deposit a slight layer of grease that can
redirect the laser and cause reading and writing errors.
