Imation has launched the first 6x Blu-ray writable media available in the US. The 6x media will be available in BD-R and BD-R DL formats. Imation is also launching a full line of Blu-ray cleaning and storage products.

The Imation TDK Life on Record 6x Blu-ray Discs will be able to store 25GB on a single layer and 50GB on dual layers. The recording speed for the media is 216 Mbps, which is about the same as a 20x DVD-R. Recording 25GB of data to one of the discs will take 17 minutes. The media will retail for $13.99 per disc for BD-R and $32.99 for BD-R DL discs.

"As more consumers create new digital memories in high definition, those memories will be relived on Blu-ray media," said Jean-Paul Eekhout, global brand director of the TDK Life of Record brand, Imation Corp. "The TDK Life on Record brand continues to be a sought-after Blu-ray pioneer both as the first- to-market with 6x Blu-ray recordable media, and for unique technology and accessories that make TDK Blu-ray media more durable and compatible with Blu-ray players."
