ray Disc; Industry Leaders Combine Thermal Retransfer, Direct-to-Disc Print Technology with Next Generation Blu-ray Media for Powerful Data Storage Solution NAB2006 MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 24, 2006 Rimage Corporation (Nasdaq:RIMG), the world leader in disc publishing, and TDK, a world leader in digital recording solutions, today announced the release of the industry's first thermal printable Blu-ray disc. The discs are on display at TDK booth #C10741 and Rimage booth #SL1843 at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, which is taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24-27, 2006. By combining Rimage's innovative direct-to-disc print technology with thermal printable Blu-ray discs from TDK, the two companies have created a powerful information storage medium that can hold up to 25 GB of critical data. Rimage's Everest(TM) thermal retransfer technology enables users to create permanent, colorful, high-resolution prints bonded directly to the surface of a CD or DVD. The resulting print is professional looking and virtually indestructible -- impervious to water, scratches and dirt. TDK Blu-ray Discs provide breakthrough recording technology from the only media company that's a founding member of the Blu-ray Disc Association. 25GB single-layer recordable and rewritable discs enable massive data backups and the highest resolution HD recording. The new thermal printable Blu-ray discs enable users to print custom text and graphics directly on the label-side surface of the disc using the Rimage Everest printer. "This combination of the industry's top ranked media and the world's most powerful disc publishing systems will provide Blu-ray users with a robust, long-term medium for their data storage needs," said Manny Almeida, chief operating officer for Rimage.
