RAK-United Arab Emirates, April 7, 2008 - Falcon Technologies International (FTI), a leading manufacturer of optical data storage discs for professional and archival applications, today officially entered the U.S. market with the introduction of a complete line of superior quality optical recording media solutions, including CD-R, DVD-R single and dual layer, and Blu-ray BD-R and BD-RE Discs. FTI is dedicated to providing the best and most complete optical recording media solutions, developing and employing the most innovative recording media technologies, manufacturing processes and quality assurance procedures. The complete line of FTI's FalconMedia Pro media products is available now from the company's distribution center in Fremont, California.
"Recognizing the demand for professional- and archival-use optical recording media that can outperform and outlast other products on the market, we have built our organization with an unyielding commitment to achieving industry-leading quality and consistency in every aspect of our business operations," said Mr. Adel Michael, co-founder and CEO of Falcon Technologies International (FTI). "This dedication to quality is evident in the groundbreaking features and superb performance, durability and reliability of our professional optical disc recording media."
FTI has created a full line of recordable CD-R, DVD-R and Blu-ray Discs to accommodate a wide range of needs and applications. FTI professional grade media solutions are ideal for enterprise data storage and archival, medical, video/film/broadcast, duplication services, government, corporate, education and worship applications.
Flagship FTI technologies contributing to the company's performance advantage include a 24k Gold reflective layer that gives its CD-R and DVD-R media an archival life spans of more than 300 and 100 years, respectively, Ultra Hard Coat (UHC) scratch resistance protection, printable disc surface options of unmatchable quality, and ultra-performance inorganic alloy recording material for Blu-ray Discs. To ensure absolute quality consistency, all FTI media is manufactured by highly skilled staff at a single state-of-the-art facility in the UAE. Only FTI recording media solutions provide Certified Swiss Quality (CSQ) guarantee, validated by the company's certification by Swiss and Japanese ISO organizations which are considered among the world's most stringent.
FTI's Ultra Hard Coat (UHC) scratch resistance protection is the most reliable solution to protect mission-critical data against potential disc surface contaminants and mishandling. Applied to the media's recording and reading side of the disc during the manufacturing process, UHC technology increases scratch resistance and also helps fend off other contaminants, such as smudges from fingerprints or any mechanical surface damaging factor.
FTI's printable discs are the ideal solutions for professional disc duplication and printing applications. Available for inkjet and thermal disc printers, FTI printable discs combine crisp, clear surface printing capabilities with exceptional recording and playback performance. The surfaces are designed to dry quickly and lock-in vivid color.
The unique inorganic alloy recording material deployed for FTI's recordable Blu-ray Discs helps achieve exceptional stability for longer archival and superior data protection. By partnering with a leading Blu-ray technology provider, FTI has positioned itself on the leading edge of Blu-ray technology.
