Description Mitsui gold DVDs are widely considered to be the most stable DVDs available. They are the choice of archivists and others requiring long-term preservation of digital data. Made in the USA, the Patented Phthalocyanine (gold) dye burns more accurately and more quickly than other dyes, which results in extremely high fidelity in the retransmission of the information. Speed 8 X, capacity 4.7G. Finally a DVD suitable for storing your most precious files! The MAM Gold Archive Grade™ DVD is designed for applications requiring long-term storage of sensitive data, video or music files. The reflective layer is comprised of 24 karat gold, which allows maximum resistance to chemical breakdown -- one of the major causes of disc failure. Along with choosing the right recording dye material and bonding agent (Note: A DVD is made of two polycarbonate discs bonded together) the long-term stability of the reflective layer is crucial. Reflective layers using your standard “silver” surface are subject to oxidation (rust) over a long period of exposure to moisture. Unlike silver jewelry, a gold ring won't rust and neither will the gold reflective layer in this disc. In optical discs, the use of gold can triple the life of a standard disc. Preliminary tests show that the MAM Gold Archive Grade™ DVD can last significantly longer than ordinary silver recordable DVD discs. The MAM Gold Archive Grade™ DVD is designed for applications requiring long-term storage of sensitive data, video or music files. The product uses 24 karat gold as the reflective layer, offering maximum resistance to chemical breakdown -- one of the major causes of disc failure. Preliminary tests show that the MAM Gold Archive Grade™ DVD lasts significantly longer than ordinary silver recordable DVD discs. The chart below shows 2 silver DVDs that have failed in less than 500 hours and another silver DVD that did much better, but the MAM gold DVD still has error rates well below the upper limit of 280. At this pace, we are expecting a lifetime of over 100 years. The MAM Archive Grade™ Gold DVD is offered as the long awaited companion to the MAM Archive Grade™ Gold CD-R which has an expected lifetime of 300 years and has earned a reputation as the highest quality storage media available today.
