What types of printable DVD's are available, and what are their applications?

There are two basic types of printable surfaces for recordable DVD's, a shiny surface and a matte surface. Both surfaces are generally available in either white or silver. There are several different types of printers on the market that are designed specifically for printing directly to the surface of the DVD media. The shiny surface media is typically used in thermal printers where a smooth glossy finish is essential to the thermal transfer process. The matte surface is designed for use with inkjet printers. The matte surface is designed to be very porous so that it can quickly absorb the ink from the printer, enabling it to dry very quickly with out running, bleeding or streaking.
