Through December 1 of 2007, Sony DADC and Cinram were the only two producers of BD50 discs in North America for discs sold at retail.
Do you know of any shortage of BD50's. Do you know the current max BD50 output from all plants. Do you know the current demand of BD50 disc?
I have a standing offer to anyone to show me a retail disc produced by anyone other than Sony DADC or Cinram that was released prior to December 1, 2007, in North America. That offer has been out there for more than 6 weeks and not one person has come forward with any disc.
Do you know how to ID the pressing plant? If so, did you post this info with your offer?
As to the yields, Cinram gets yields between 65% to as high as 80% depending on the cycle time and how much data is on a disc. I stated this over 6 weeks ago in this thread and Cinram has recently publicly confirmed those numbers in a press release.
Do you know the yields for DADC?Comment
: It should be obvious to anyone that the first BD were BD25. Then BD50's came online only from DADC. Probably low output and low yield rates.
Other lines have now come/are coming online and yield rates are on the rise. Does this sound familiar? Sure does. Check yield rates in the early days of Laserdisc, CD's and DVD's, Transistors, IC's, CPU's, Hard Disc, etc.
