Forum to Deliver Calibration Discs to Test Equipment Manufacturers
Tokyo, Feb. 19, 2001 -- The DVD Forum announced today that it
will soon begin to deliver calibration discs to DVD Format and
Logo Licensees, who are read-only DVD Disc replicators and/or
read-only DVD Disc evaluation system manufacturers, to further
assure disc quality control and thus compatibility among DVD products.
Calibration discs, an important tool needed in the DVD manufacturing
process, can be used as a certified reference for the calibration
of DVD measurement equipment, to assure conformity to industry
The first calibration disc to be offered, developed by Philips
and Warner Advanced Media Operations (WAMO) in close cooperation
with the DVD Forum's Verification Policy Committee and the DVD
Format/Logo License Corporation, is a Single Layer Signal Disc
for read-only DVD discs (DVD-Video, DVD-ROM and DVD-Audio). DVD
Forum will offer funding for this program.
Each numbered calibration disc will be accompanied by an individual
measurement report by the Philips DVD Format Verification Laboratory.
This data will be tested against a reference, plus used measurement
methods, which is based on International Standards and/or agreed
upon in the DVD Forum.
A Dual Layer Signal Disc is under development and will be released
later this year.
