Panasonic is releasing 3-inch DVD-R recording discs next spring in the US. These discs can contain up to 40 minutes of high definition recording with AVCHD format when recorded with the Panasonic HDC-DX1 camcorder.
In data terms, the full capacity of the new Panasonic DVD-R disc is 2.6 Gigabytes. It also features a specially developed hard coat technology, making its surface extremely scratch resistant and allowing for easy and worry-free handling.
Panasonic is a leading brand of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.
