About Verbatim's AZO Technology
Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), Verbatim’s parent company in Japan, brings extensive technological research and development to the table. Core technologies, like the AZO recording layer give Verbatim an offering like no other optical manufacturer. This unique and ultra-stable layer strongly resists UV light, withstands high laser and rotation speeds on newer drives and ensures compatibility with current DVD standards.
Verbatim’s AZO recording layer not only withstands the extremely high laser and rotation speeds of newer drives, it also maximizes their performance. Verbatim paid particular attention to the durability and light fastness of AZO; tests show that it is more stable than most recording dyes and the least affected by ultraviolet light.
AZO also offers high sensitivity for reliable high-speed recording and high reflectivity to eliminate read errors. The thinness of the recording layer is also critical. The thinner the layer, the higher the sensitivity and power margin; therefore, the better the DVD works for high-speed recording.
What does all this mean for you? Verbatim AZO technology translates into optical products that cost just a little more but are worth the slight difference. They are products you want—offering reliability, high read and write performance, high-quality photos and sound and superior archival protection that lasts.
Provides superior performance and reliability, no matter what you are saving. This patented Mitsubishi technology is the most reliable, high-quality optical technology on the market today, and it is only available from Verbatim!
Verbatim manufactures our DVDs to meet our strict quality standards. We stand behind the quality of our products—and our Limited Lifetime Warranty proves it!
Our online reviews say it for us; we make DVDs that work--no coasters! Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM), our parent company, has long-standing relationships with drive manufacturers who use our products to test their performance, making Verbatim DVDs the most compatible in the industry.
Things to Consider
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I record over video/audio/data stored on a DVD R DL disc?
No. DVD R DL discs are dual layer DVD’s designed for one-time recording.
Do DVD R DL discs require a special DVD burner?
Yes. DVD R DL discs require double layer writers for recording. Verbatim DVD R DL are approved for high speed burning, up to 6X speed, allowing you to store up to 8.5GB of video in approximately 16 minutes.
Will a DVD R DL play in my regular DVD player?
Yes. Verbatim DVD R DL discs are compatible with most DVD video players and DVD-ROM drives.
What does the plus and dash found in the format mean?
When DVD media technology was first developed, the plus and dash formats used different writing and reading specifications. Today, most DVD writers and readers now work with no noticeable performance differences between plus and dash formats. Check with your manufacturers’ suggestion of DVD format for the best compatibility—especially in older technology.
So how do I know which DVD to use?
Recordable optical media is a natural choice for data archiving and backup. Choosing a DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL is ideal, as these write-once discs hold twice the capacity of standard DVDs as well as preventing contents from being erased or mistakenly replaced. Double layer discs are also a great option simple data backup when saving larger files.
Archive vs. Backup – What’s the Difference?
The word archive conjures up thoughts of old, dark libraries or musty basements. However, today’s version of archiving is much different. Archiving digital files simply means creating a safe storage place for important files. Archived data is often a permanent record that is moved, not copied, from one system to another and retained for a specified period of time. Archiving is an easy activity that preserves your data with just a little preparation.
It’s best to have several copies of your digital archives to store in different locations. That’s why Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs are a natural choice for archiving. They’re inexpensive, portable and easy to store. Make sure you are using the right disc--the disc name you use should have an R on the end meaning it is write once. A write once disc prevents you from erasing contents or mistakenly replacing data. Also, to extend the life of your disc, consider Archival Grade media that include a gold layer that is naturally resistant to corrosion offering greater protection than standard silver discs.
You probably leave your digital files tucked away on your computers’ hard drive—assuming they are safe. But what if your computer crashes or files get corrupted somehow? You might lose your digital photos, music and data. Forever. Good news—it is simple to backup your digital files and you can have working copies that are quickly accessible. Getting started is easy; it only requires a backup routine performed regularly and a safe place to store your digital files.
BD-RE, DVD-RW/-RAM and CD-RW discs are a great choice for quick back-ups. Re-writable media allows you to add and edit content. This works well for constantly changing information.
Whether creating an archive or a backup, always remember to store your discs in a sleeve or case. This will help ensure they are protected from fingerprints, accidental spills, dust and debris, protecting your files for decades to come.
The ideal way to store discs is in an upright (like a book) position in a CD/DVD/Blu-ray case. Ideally, discs should be stored in a location 60-75 degrees F with 35-50% relative humidity. Fluctuations in the storage area should not exceed +/- 2 degrees F. in temperature; relative humidity should not fluctuate more than +/- 5%.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
grip on the technology, especially the emulsion stability on the disk surface. I remember trusting
my data on generics nearly two decades ago. I checked the data after the burn, and everything
seemed OK. Then, a few days later DISK ERROR, TOC UNREADABLE. Thank goodness it
screwed me on that one disk only.
So, don't trust generics. Name brands are also suspect, especially HP, Kodak, and Memorex.
In fact, it was a Memorex engineer who clued me in on the aspect of dye emulsion stability as
key to dual-layer functionality. He strongly suggested VERBATIM.
THese blanks cost more than a buck apiece, but isn't your data worth it?
I can not recommend this brand enough.
Very good media with DUAL LAYER capability. Great when you have an ISO that you need to apply to disc that is over the regular 4.5 G limit of regular discs. Be certain your DVD burner is Dual Layer capable. Usually will have DL on it somewhere. A regular drive will not burn these discs.
I burned a copy of an ISO that was about 7.5 G with no problem at all. Will be buying again.
I am not associated nor was i compensated for my independant and honest review.
Being my first Dual Layer purchase though, I did a lot of research and learned two important things. One, the dual layer means it records on both sides of the "line" created when it burns the disk, not that it has to be flipped over (think of it like a record, recording on both sides of the groove rather than just down the center). May sound silly to some being such a simple concept, but no one bothers to mention it and to the unknowledgeable, it's an important bit of info. Two, the disks don't have 8.5GB of recordable space, they only have 7.96GB. Another useful piece of information that should have been in the product description.
In the end I'd not only recommend them, but I'd purchase them again myself!
