I am not an avid fan of Blu-Ray to be honest, but this seems pretty cool.


Japan's TDK Corp. has developed a prototype single-sided recordable blue laser disc with a capacity of 200G bytes, surpassing the current 25G-byte capacity for single-layer Blu-ray discs and 50G bytes for dual-layer discs, the company announced at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.

TDK had previously developed a prototype disc with a capacity of 100G-bytes. The latest prototype will store approximately 18 hours of high-definition video.

TDK didn't say when the discs would be available.

Several Hollywood film studios announced on Thursday the release of numerous titles on the Blu-ray Disc format, to be available ahead of the holiday shopping season in December.

$25/disc for 200GB? Try like $500/disc.

It's what, $60/disc for a 50GB DL disc?

Yeah, I wonder what that would cost and how long it would take to burn that much data. Man, that would be perfect for work though.

TDK didn't say when the discs would be available.

Xbitlabs have more information about it, TDK said it would ship later this year with either 100GB or 200GB Blu-ray discs if studios are in good position to sell it later this year or 2008 and use it to counter HD-DVD's 51GB triple layer discs.

TDK's 100 and 200GB Blu-ray used 33GB on single layer, an impressive 8GB increase over prevous 25GB per layer beaten Toshiba's announced 17GB per layer 2GB increase over previous 15GB per layer.

We may see 33GB on a single layer.

Nobody in their right mind would buy this crap. You could buy 5x the storage in external HDDs for the price of a 200GB BR disc + BR recorder. What a waste of time for TDK.

I pretty much agree.
I would rather just buy a new HDD every time i fill mine up haha

And I do fill mine up rather often... :captnkill:

Hard disk > any media disc for storage. (notice were talking storage: not reliability ;) )

^^^ Exactly. A BR disc gets scratched up and boom, you are SCREWED! HDDs are more reliable, everyone knows that.
