Blu-ray Disc Association has included Moser Baer India''s patented technology as one of the four standard media for inclusion in the Blu-ray disc specifications at its recently concluded meeting in Newport Beach, California.
Moser Baer played a pivotal role in developing the next generation optical media (Blu-ray disc). The company is now ranked amongst a select few like Mitsubishi Kagaku Media Co Ltd, Fuji Photo Film Co Ltd, and Taiyo Yuden of Japan to have its technology approved by the Blu-ray Disc Association.
According to Ratul Puri, executive director, Moser Baer India, "The development is part of our strategy to transform Moser Baer into a technology developer and innovator from a technology recipient."
Having already established a first mover advantage in HD DVD-R format, the company has now extended its technology leadership position in the Blu-ray media as well. Its innovative use of a special disc structure using common materials will ensure that this will become a very cost effective solution for the industry.
This is expected to give the company a significant competitive edge in this next generation format race. Its pioneering work in the Low-to-High (L2H) recording technology for Blu-ray will help it further enhance its global leadership position.
"In the L2H format, other companies are working on the dye-based material while Moser Baer has adopted a new innovative approach based on inorganic phase change material with its own patented technology," says Giriraj Nyati, VP, engineering and technology, Moser Baer India.
