SuperMediaStore - CMC Pro Taiyo Yuden (TDMR-ZZ-SB8) 8X DVD-R Silver Lacquer Media

Ever since their first recordable compact disc in 1988, Taiyo Yuden has continued down the path of excellence, and the Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 8X is no different. It’s no wonder that you’ve come to insist on Taiyo Yuden for your blank media needs, given their undeniable reputation as one of the industry’s leaders in providing top-notch optical media products. And when it comes to choosing your destination to make your purchases, do not settle for just any other vendor – insist on LINKYO, an authorized Taiyo Yuden distributor.

The Taiyo Yuden 4.7 GB White Premium Line Inkjet Hub Printable 8X DVD-R Blank Media Discs come in a 100 disc pack wrapped with sturdy plastic. The white inkjet surface allows for customization of the discs with the appropriate inkjet printers that have the disc alignment function. The versatility of this disc allows them compatibility with many industry-level DVD-R burners and drives alike. These discs offer a one-time write for 4.7GB worth of data storage and media recording of unmatched quality. Taiyo Yuden 8X DVD-R media discs are ideal for a variety of functions, such as making DVD copies, backing up or storing data, and personal or professional media recording.

Taiyo Yuden used to make their own disks. Then JVC picked up production using the same disc designations. Now I see CMC has acquired it, again the same disc designations. JVC had a good reputation, but I’m not so sure about CMC (in fact, I remember keeping away from a bunch bad discs including CMC brand). But apparently this is a special production version.

Media Supply - CMC Pro Powered by TY Blank Discs

Confused by the blank discs marked as CMC Pro - Powered by TY instead of JVC or Taiyo Yuden? Let us explain.

Taiyo Yuden has historically been the most reliable name in blank CD and blank DVD products, and quality conscious customers have sought that name for years. A few years back, Taiyo went and shook all that up.

Here’s the scoop: In 2008, Taiyo Yuden purchased JVC’s media group, and they became one and the same, taking advantage of JVC’s royalty deals and brand recognition. There was no change in manufacturing. Taiyo Yuden still made the discs at its factory in Japan, but the part numbers and labeling changed to reflect the JVC brand.

Fast forward seven years to 2015, when Taiyo Yuden announced that it would stop production of all optical media products at the end of the year. CMC, a well-established optical media manufacturer, recognized an opportunity, and quickly moved to acquire the Taiyo Yuden technology that made JVC/TY the most trusted name in the business. Under the guidance of Taiyo Yuden engineers, CMC built specialized production lines, dedicated to producing its CMC Pro - Powered by TY line of premium blank discs. CMC manufactures CMC Pro using the exact same processes, raw materials, specifications and strict quality standards established by Taiyo Yuden. In addition to its dedication to maintain Taiyo Yuden/JVC quality, CMC also committed to producing all JVC/TY SKUs, ensuring that professionals can continue to get the formats and print surfaces required for their specific applications.

In a nutshell, that’s the story of how Taiyo Yuden became JVC/Taiyo Yuden, which is now CMC Pro - Powered by TY Technology. Whatever you call them, at the end of the day, you’re getting a great blank disc.

So it looks like CMC’s Taiyo Yuden is good. In any case, always read the descriptions and get the “premium line”, never the “value line” (which are 2nds).

Having said and done all that, I’ve been thinking about “archive quality” discs.
