Note to Consumer: Your Taiyo Yuden DVDs & CDs may look different!

Taiyo Yuden is in the process of moving most of their part numbers to JVC part numbers. Last year Taiyo Yuden purchased JVC's media group and became one, taking advantage of JVC's royalty deals on blank discs. Part of this cost-saving agreement was to change the marketing name of Taiyo to JVC, so they could take advantage of the JVC's more broadly known name. As Taiyo Yuden marked inventory gets sold all Taiyo product will come with the JVC marking. The base product is exactly the same and up to the same quality standards as the Taiyo Yuden.

Real life questions from our customers and real life answers from MediaSupply.com:

Q: What is the difference in the between White Inkjet Printable, Silver Inkjet Printable, White Thermal Everest, etc.?

A: Taiyo Yuden DVDs are available in many print surfaces, all developed to work with specific disc print technologies and specific artwork.

  • Watershield White Inkjet Taiyo Yuden - Works with inkjet printers designed to print directly to the disc surface, like a Microboards PrintFactory, a Primera Bravo, Epson Discproducer or any inkjet printer with disc printing capability. Watershield discs are basically like using glossy/waterproof paper in your inkjet printer. The Watershield surface is a glossy, waterproof surface that is receptive to inkjet printing. The ink drys very fast and creates a great photo quality disc. The white surface keeps the colors true and the disc is hub printable.
  • White Inkjet Taiyo Yuden - Works with inkjet printers designed to print directly to the disc surface, like a Microboards PrintFactory, a Primera Bravo, Epson Discproducer or any inkjet printer with disc printing capability. These discs feature a white inkjet surface the makes the colors of your print stand out with the truest color and offers the fastest and cleanest drying surface. The center hub of the disc is metalized, so there are no shadows in the hub.
  • Silver Inkjet Taiyo Yuden - These discs feature a silver print surface that can create a great print, but please make sure your artwork will look good on silver before you start. They are metalized to the hub as well, so there is limited shadow in the hub. These discs also have a fast drying and color safe print surface.
  • White Thermal Everest - The Everest Printer is a Thermal Retransfer Printer manufactured by Rimage. The Everest printer requires a print surface that is securely bonded to the disc due to the high pressure in the printing. The white surface makes for the best color matching. Taiyo Yuden is the preferred vendor of Everest discs for Rimage. These discs will also work with the Teac P55 printer.
  • Silver Thermal Everest - Like the silver inkjet we recommend testing your artwork on a silver disc surface before you commit to using it. Printing on a silver disc without a white flood surface can result in a "mirror effect" in your print due to the two discs used to make a DVD.
  • Silver Lacquer Taiyo Yuden - Silver Lacquer surface discs are designed for screen printing and offset printing, but have become the most popular Taiyo Yuden disc due to the low price. They are used by customers who print paper labels and apply them to the discs as well. MediaSupply.com doesn't recommend that practice by the way, but its a popular way to label discs.

Guaranteed Authentic Taiyo Yuden

MediaSupply.com guarantees that every Taiyo Yuden we sell is authentic Taiyo Yuden, made in Japan. Because Taiyo Yuden focuses on bulk DVD & CD product, with no branding logos on the disc surface, some web merchants can pull a fast one by selling generic product as TY. It is hard to tell if you don't know the differences. See our MediaSupply.com Taiyo Yuden Page to see how you can make sure your Taiyo Yuden DVD & Taiyo Yuden CD is authentic. Media Supply is an authorized Taiyo Yuden Dealer.
