Labelflash technology was created as a joint project between engineers at Yamaha Corporation and Fujifilm Corporation. DVD drives enabled with Labelflash allow users to create customized, professional-looking DVDs with clear, finely detailed labeling by inscribing high-quality images and text directly into a specialized dye within the disc. The process eliminates the need for specialized printers, inks or sticky labels.
Fujifilm recordable media for Labelflash™ is initially available in DVD-R (16x) format and are capable of burning images in as little as five (5) minutes in ‘Fast' mode and 15-20 minutes for the highest contrast.
Although many – like me – will favor the use of a simple marker pen instead of waiting nearly half an hour to label a disc, it is still a nice alternative to create professional-looking CDs and DVDs. The technology will be included on select models of Toshiba’s new Satellite Notebook computer series.
