Moser Baer develops innovations in Blu Ray disc technology

MUMBAI: Moser Baer India has announced a breakthrough in technology development in next generation optical media formats. The company, along with recently acquired OM&T, the former R&D subsidiary of Philips, has developed what it says is the world‘s first high speed 8x Blu-ray disc (BDR).

The company was also the first company in the world to ship the blue laser based HD DVD-R product to its global OEM customers.


Moser Baer executive director Ratul Puri says, "This is a major achievement for the Company and it gives us a significant advantage in the fast growing next generation optical format market. Moreover, this vindicates our strategy of acquiring OM&T and adding their capabilities to the strong in-house R&D team to lead the technology development curve in the optical and photovoltaic space. The pioneering work in the Blu-ray format will further enhance our global leadership position."

While the BDR market is witnessing development in the 1x-4x recording speeds discs, the company with its innovative technology has already demonstrated new benchmarks in 1x-8x discs.

End users can now have a faster media that can record a 2-hour transmission equivalent of HD (High Definition) quality data in less than 15 minutes. The next generation formats have a capacity ranging from 15 GB to 50 GB and offer more than five to ten times the data storage capacity of standard DVD media. These next generation formats offer an ideal solution for reliable business backup, including medical and government imaging, photography, videography, as well as high definition video recording.

Moser baer VP R&D and engineering Giriraj Nyati says, "This is a significant landmark for us. We are very proud that an Indian Company has once again set global benchmarks in the optical media market. Our intensive in-house R&D focus coupled with the capabilities of OM&T will ensure that we continue to set new global benchmarks for the industry. This is inline with our strategy of transforming Moser Baer from a technology recipient into a technology developer and innovator."
