What is ISO 10995?

ISO 10995 is the international standard currently set to test DVD+/-R/RW/RAM discs. The standard, established in April 2008 in Japan, specifies a the test method for estimating the archival lifetime of optical media. It uses an accelerated aging test method for estimating the life expectancy for the retrievability of information stored on recordable or rewritable optical discs. JVC’s specialized optical disc created for long-term storage are the only ISO 10995 certified disc for data archival. Each disc is carefully constructed with a super silver alloy reflector, further enhancing its long-term storage capability.

The ISO-certified solution to the problem of long-term data archival combines three products: First, an optical disc optimized for optimum long-term storage made in Japan. Second, a recorder that maintains an extremely low error rate of recording signal default characteristics. Lastly, an inspection device that precisely measures error rates. Combined, users can be absolutely assured of long-term data storage and retrieval by means of optical disc technology. Microboards’ Archival Publishers feature an integrated drive, allowing users to automate the labeling and recording of discs adherent to the ISO 10995 standard.
