BD Power Cube & DVD Power Cube

These two newly designed cubes for integration in Datarius’ existing DaTABANK systems use sophisticated drive technology from the DPHI Datarius Inc.’s Research & Development organization in Longmont, Colorado, USA. The new Power Cube series is capable of testing any pre-recorded/recordable format, stamper or replica. For the current challenges facing the optical media industry, DPHI Datarius has created one solution that covers all formats. This huge economic advantage established by the DPHI Datarius drive technology creates the most cost-effective solution available today. The increased flexibility and improved stability provide the highest level of quality for test equipment devices.

Tabletop Series BD & DVD ECC Analyzers

  BD DL eccentricity

The Datarius Blu-ray & DVD ECC Analyzers offer fast and precise measurements, essential for the control of disc replication. Eccentricity (ECC) is the offset of the center hole from the center of the spiral track circle and is an essential parameter for optical media quality control. High ECC can cause tracking and playability issues for the end-user. The negative effects of eccentricity issues increase with the read-out speed. The most common sources for poor eccentricity are bad stamper punching, shrinkage during the cooling cycle of the discs, and incorrect bonding or embossing/2P settings. The Blu-ray & DVD ECC Analyzers provide instant feedback, allowing for process adjustments to be carried out in real-time. This process provides manufacturers the ability to improve yields and reduce scrap.
