According to the source CMC is aggressively adding DVD recordable disc production capacity in the near future. The company is aiming to take the lead in the next generation of optical storing media.
CMC plans to expand its monthly blank recordable DVD disc capacity to 16 million units in July and 30 million units by year-end, Wong said. The new plan is much more aggressive than the company’s original plan. Earlier, the company said it would expand monthly capacity to about 10 million units in the fourth quarter from six million in the second quarter.
.. Taiwan-based Ritek, the current leader among recordable DVD disc manufacturers, said it would expand its monthly recordable DVD disc capacity to 20 million units by year-end, as previously scheduled.
Unfortunately CMC magnetics in the CD-R field are infamous of their poor and inconsistent quality. It will be interesting to see how they do in the DVD-R field in terms of quality.
