ATOMM™: Overview

ATOMM stands for Advanced super Thin layer and high-Output Metal Media.

Benefit #5: Lower cost

Fujifilm's exclusive dual-coating method applies the two layers to the basefilm simultaneously. The efficiencies of mass production minimize the cost of the product. Compared to other types of media, even ME media, ATOMM's combination of advantages makes it the perfect choice for high-density data recording.
