30 November 1999 Practical relevance of standardized disk and drive measurements
Author Affiliations +
Literally hundreds of parameters have been specified for measuring Compact Disc (CD) and Digital Video Disc (DVD) characteristics but virtually none for drive performance. For the hundreds of optical disc characteristics, there are many differing methods for measuring each one. After having chosen the 'best' methods for measuring the disc characteristics and conducting the measurements, conformance to the industry specifications (de-facto standards) must be judged. The practical relevance of the relationships between disc parameters, measurement methods, and drive performance must be understood and managed such that the value experienced by the customer is preserved.
