Diamond Bar, CA--April 18, 2005 -- The Advanced Media RIDATA DVD media has been voted number one in the Writable DVD Media category of EventDV Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards. The selection was announced during the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. Online voting, held over a three-month period, allowed visitors to the web site to choose their favorite product in a number of categories filled with the top brands on the market.

EventDV is targeted to the rapidly growing field of event videographers as well as those doing corporate, academic, sports, documentary, legal, and other videography work. Each issue contains articles on a variety of pertinent equipment including cameras and workstations; titles, menus, and interactive design; duplication; motion graphics and special effects; audio processing; and more. The magazine is considered a must read for videographers wanting to meet the expectations coming from corporations, institutions, families, or other clients.

"After years of doing Editor’s Choice awards in EventDV and EMedia before it, we felt it was time to let the readers have their say," said EventDV editor Stephen F. Nathans. "Nine thousand votes later, it’s fair to say they’ve spoken."

Awards are always nice, but when they come from actual users of your products, they mean so much more," remarked Harvey Liu, Advanced Media (RITEK USA) President. "Professional videography demands high-quality, stable DVD media. It says a lot about our RIDATA products that they are voted the best by members of this industry."

The RIDATA DVD lineup includes inkjet printable 4x and 8x DVD+/-R discs with 4.7GB capacity; inkjet-printable, double-layer DVD+R; and an ultra fast, 16x DVD+R. Its 8x DVD+RW is only the second such disc to win certification by the Philips Intellectual Property and Standards division in The Netherlands.
