Sony DADC, a producer of optical disc media, said it inaugurated Blu-ray disc BD-ROM (video, games and data) production in the United States.

Sony DADC in the United States currently has three Blu-ray replication lines functioning with a capacity of 25,000 single-layer 25Gbyte Blu-ray discs per day, for a total of 750,000 Blu-ray discs per month. This capacity is expected to increase to nearly 5 million discs per month by October as additional lines are added to the facility. Of these additional lines, six will be capable of manufacturing 50Gbyte dual layer Blu-ray discs.

Sony DADC also revealed that it has an offset printer and packaging line dedicated to Blu-ray BD-ROM. It uses a phase transition mastering (PTM) machine, which can be reconfigured to master both BD-ROM and DVD-ROM (video, games and data) on a single system. A second PTM machine will be added later this year, and an additional offset printer and three additional packaging lines will be added by October.

Blu-ray disc authoring services will be offered to customers this month.
