TDK Printable Blu-Ray Disc

TDK today started shipping some of the first-ever printable BD-R discs. The single-layer, 25GB discs let compatible printers write labels on the drives from the edge to the hub of the disc without having to worry about damage; as with the company's normal writable Blu-Ray discs, the printable kind has a DURABIS coating that can withstand even deliberate scratching in most cases.

Versions of the disc are being made available today for inkjet and thermal printers at a price of $25 each; at the moment, the new storage is currently only printable using professional equipment but should allow home use with supporting drives in the future.
