Delkin Devices, Inc. has just announced the release of the company's latest device - a 4x external disc drive capable of reading and writing to Blu-ray media.  Right on the heels of the company's release of its Archival Gold® Blu-ray discs, this new drive will make it much easier for photographers to make the transition to Blu-ray technology. 

Though Delkin's new drive is backward compatible with all CD and DVD recordable media, using the drive with Archival Gold BD-R discs lets photographers quickly and easily preserve large quantities of data for over 200 years

"Though we were first to market with truly archival grade BD-R discs, we noticed that there was a lack of drives available, especially drives capable of writing BD-Rs at 4x," said Kathleen Finlayson, Delkin's New Product Specialist.  "With our new drive and our Archival Gold® BD-R media, photographers will finally be able to take advantage of Blu-ray technology in archiving their images."
Delkin's new external drive, which is compatible with the latest BD-R technology, matches the company's Archival Gold® BD-R 4x write speed providing users with the fastest method of archiving their images.  The drive easily attaches to desktop or laptop computers through Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and comes with recording software, a free Archival Gold® BD-R disc and a padded carrying case.  Mac users with OS 10.5.4+ do not need any software to read or write BD-R media.

"As a professional photographer, archiving your images is key," said Martin Wood, Delkin's CEO.  "With our Archival Gold® BD-R discs, we provide photographers with a means of storing data safely for over 200 years.  Now, with our new external drive, photographers can easily take advantage of the archival lifespan and large storage capacity of our media."

Delkin Archival Gold® Blu-ray discs feature an unprecedented 200 year longevity rating, as well as a market-leading 4x write speed.  Proprietary ScratchArmor™ scratch-proof coating protects the discs over fifty times better than typical coatings found on other optical discs, making Delkin Blu-ray the most durable on the market.

Go to http://www.delkin.com for more information or to purchase Delkin's 4x Blu-ray drive or Archival Gold® BD-R media.  Delkin's 4x Blu-ray drive is also available at most camera stores worldwide.  MSRP for the drive is $549.99.  For MSRP on Archival Gold® Media, please visit http://www.delkin.com/products/
