Verbatim Corp. today announced the first mini Blu-ray recordable/ rewritable (BD-R/RE) media, a 3-inch (8cm) disc that can store 7.5GB of data.

The Verbatim Mini Blu-ray disc will be available this month in Japan, where the new Hitachi BD-compatible camcorder will also be launched.

Shipments of the mini BD-R discs to other parts of the world, including North America, will commence when the new BD-compatible camcorders become available in those places.

Verbatim said the proprietary hard-coat finish on their BD media has superior anti-static and anti-scratch properties for added protection against scratches, fingerprints and dust particles that can occur during normal camcorder and home use.
