LIMDOW

(Light Intensity Modulation Direct OverWrite) An enhancement of the magneto-optic technology that improved writing speed by allowing a bit to be written in one pass instead of two. The LIMDOW media was more costly than standard non-direct overwrite MO media. Many MO drives supported both types. See direct overwrite and magneto-optic disk.

LIMDOW dramatically improves the write speed with burst rates of 10MB/s and sustained throughput of 4MB/s.
LIMDOW combines multiple layers in the media with a drive which writes data at two different laser power levels so data can be written "on the fly.
The implementation of LIMDOW within the DW 260 dramatically improves the write speed with burst rates of 10MB/s and sustained throughput of 4MB/s.
