DiscT@2 (read aloud as "disc tattoo") is a technology introduced by Yamaha that allows users to burn custom motifs or images onto the data side of CD-R and DVD media when using a Yamaha-branded or compatible drive. Other technologies such as NEC's LabelFlash system allow the same functionality as DiscT@2, as well as the functionality provided by systems such as Hewlett Packard's LightScribe. Yamaha stopped production of CD/DVD burners in 2003.
- Pioneer DVR-111D, DVR-111L, DVR-111, and DVR-A11XL
- NEC ND-3550A, ND-3551A, ND-4550A, ND-4551A & ND-4571A
- Yamaha CRW-F1
All share the same internal hardware per brand, but needs to be upgraded to certain firmware so that LabelFlash and DVD-RAM writing can be enabled on unsupported models. The Dangerous Brothers offers this firmware on their site.
In December 2006, Yamaha and NEC announced LabelFlash, an implementation of Yamaha's DiscT@2 on DVD media, with the added feature of being able to label special LabelFlash discs on the label side. LabelFlash's implementation of DiscT@2 does not support CD-R media; however, FujiFilm sells CD-Rs that allow LabelFlash labels to be applied. LabelFlash's Competitor is LightScribe.
