Confused by the blank discs marked as JVC or Taiyo Yuden? Let us explain.

Taiyo Yuden has historically been the most reliable name in blank CD and blank DVD products, and quality consciuous customers have sought that name for years. A few years back, Taiyo went and shook all that up.

Here's the scoop: Taiyo Yuden purchased JVC's media group, and they became one and the same, taking advantage of JVC's royalty deals on blank discs. An additional part of this cost-saving agreement was to change the brand name of Taiyo Yuden blank media to JVC, taking advantage of JVC's more broadly known name. All Taiyo products are now sold under the JVC brand name.

While the name changed, the blank CDs and DVDs are exactly the same, manufactured on the same Taiyo Yuden manufacturing lines, to the same quality standards as before. The only difference is the package labeling. For those of us who sell it everyday, it's also easier to spell! Read more about the TY/JVC change here. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!

JVC/Taiyo Yuden DVD Media and JVC/Taiyo Yuden CD Media

CD-R

The company that pioneered recordable CD technology (along with Sony), JVC/Taiyo Yuden offers professional grade CD-Rs widely considered the best quality with the highest reliability and consistency in the recordable media industry. JVC/Taiyo Yuden CD-Rs outperform the competition in recording accuracy and superior durability in a wide variety of data and audio applications.

It all comes down to how much you value your customers and your time. If you have time to go through each disc to verify that all your copies are good, and you don't have much concern about whether your recorded disc holds up well, then JVC/Taiyo may not be for you.

DVD-R & DVD+R

JVC/Taiyo Yuden blank DVDs hold 4.7GB of data and also offer the same quality and reliability found in JVC/Taiyo Yuden CD-Rs. Taiyo DVDs are the industry standard for low fallout during recording, high print quality, and low failure in customer drives and players. Like the TY/JVC CD-Rs, these are the standard for print quality, low-error recording, and playback in just about any drive out there.

BD-R

JVC/Taiyo Yuden blank Blu-ray Discs hold 25GB of data and live up to Taiyo Yuden's reputation for quality optical media products. Taiyo Yuden/JVC's BD-Rs are LTH type BD-Rs, which will work with most newer Blu-ray burners, but you should check with the manufacturer of your equipment to make sure.

How can I tell if I have fake or real JVC/Taiyo Yuden?

This isn't nearly as difficult as it used to be. Since Taiyo's acquistion of the JVC name, all Taiyo/JVC products' packaging (excluding Valueline discs) are marked with the JVC logo, a description and barcode. There are websites out there offering JVC/Taiyo Yuden CDs and DVDs that are not authentic. If youíre not familiar with how a Taiyo Yuden disc looks or how they are packaged, you could be paying for premium Taiyo Yuden/JVC discs and getting a lesser product.

Hereís how to verify youíve got authentic Taiyo Yuden:

  1. Make sure the discs are made in Japan. JVC/Taiyo Yuden is the only disc manufacturer who is still primarily producing discs in Japan. US Customs is very particular that components like a DVD or CD be marked with their country of origin, so any disc should be clearly marked.
  2. Look for the JVC/Taiyo Yuden part number. You can verify these part numbers against the item details on Media Supply's product pages.
  3. You can verify a discís manufacturer by using a Disc Identifier software. These are easy to use and download. A nice little application is DVDInfoPro.
