The 8 cm Blu-ray media will be available in specialist stores from November and will cost between 12,99 and 17,99 (RRP). Measuring 8 cm in diameter, the new 7.5 GB discs provide approximately one hour of continuous video capture time on a single side when high definition (1920×1080) is used, and approximately two hours of video capture time with images recorded at 1440×1080. The new Mini BD media have been launched in Japan simultaneously with the new Hitachi BD-compatible camcorder in August. In Europe, the Verbatim Mini Blu-ray media will be available at the beginning of November. The recordable Mini BD-R costs 12.99, the rewritable Mini BD-R costs 17.99 (recommended retail prices). Verbatim Mini BD media combined with a BD-compatible camcorder provides consumers with convenience features that hard disk camcorders cannot offer, says Torsten Leye, Marketing Manager Optical Verbatim EUMEA. Therefore, the Verbatim high quality media are perfect for the reliable shooting and long-term storing of holiday and family videos. With the ability to record priceless memories directly to a Mini BD disc, users can eliminate the time-consuming process of downloading captured video to their computer hard drive. They can also enjoy unlimited capacity by simply removing the disc from the camcorder and adding a new one. Like Verbatim's standard (12 cm) BD media, the new 8 cm Mini BD media delivers the highest read/write performance and unsurpassed longevity. Advanced technologies developed by Verbatim´s parent company, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), guard against deterioration in picture and sound quality even with repeated recording and playback.
