Default 51GB HD-DVD approved.

HD-DVD has 1GB on Blu Ray. Thats like an extra 10 minutes of porn more compaired to Blu Ray.


Toshiba's triple layer gambit

Quote:
The DVD Forum has approved Toshiba's proposal for a new triple layer disc structure.

Current HD DVDs come in single and dual layer flavors, with 15 and 30GB capacity respectively.

The new standard increases capacity per layer from 15 to 17GB to offer a total of 51GBs of storage, one gigabyte more than a dual layer Blu Ray disc.

It is still unclear whether the new triple layer discs are compatible with currently available HD devices.

The DVD Forum presented the basic specifications of two new triple-layer HD DVD disc formats, in an effort to offer higher storage capacities competitive to the rival Blu-Ray camp.

The DVD Forum presented two new extensions of the HD DVD-ROM format:

- The HD DVD-ROM Triple layer 51GB (single format)
- The Triple layer Twin format

The presentation took place in the DVD Forum, PCC, Europe Conference 2007 on September 3rd at Novotel Berlin, Am Tiergarten hotel.

HD DVD-ROM Triple layer 51GB

This is a HD DVD-ROM disc with three layers. Each layer can store up to 17GB of data/video, resulting in a total capacity of 51GB.

The disc has been approved by the DVD Forum's WG-11 (Triple layer 51 GB disc Ver.1.9), and is expected to be also approved by the TCG/SC later this year.



The new disc adds a high-end option to the previous HD DVD-ROM disc lineup that includes the 15GB (single-layer, single-sided) and 30GB (dual-layer, single-sided). Commercialization of the 51GB HD DVD-ROm disc could definitely be a strong weapon for the HD DVD format against Sony's Blu-Ray, which currently offers a maximum of 50GB of storage capacity with 2-layer discs. However, the new HD DVD-ROM discs may not be copmatible with the first generaation HD DVD players, since their triple-layer nature could require the use of spherical aberration compensation techniques for reading, a feature that is not currently supported by the HD DVD hardware. The DVD Forum's representatives said that the issue is still under study.

DVD/HD DVD-ROM Triple layer Twin format

This is the second extension of the HD DVD format that was presented at the DVD Forum sconference. This is a single- sided disc with one DVD layer and two HD DVD layers. The available capacities are 4.7GB for DVD and 30Gb for HD DVD.




The WG-11 approved the extension (Triple layer Twin format Ver. 1.9). The standard definition content of the new "hybrid" discs can be played back on current DVD Players, while their owners will also be able to enjoy high-definition content from the same source when they purchase HD DVD players. The new disc further prepares the way for a smooth transition from DVD to HD DVD.

I especially like the idea of single sided DVD/dual layer HD-DVD format.

More bad news for Blue-Ray it would seem.

thats why I love HD-DVD at least they try to make it a easier transition, you can buy a movie play it now in DVD and later when you get HD-DVD player just watch it in HD format. won't have to buy the movie again.

Everything I've read says at most all that will be required is a firmware update.

Its been long known that HD-DVD has capability to do triple layer. Its also known that Blu0ray has 100gb quad layer disks.

I'm not on the side of BluRay here, just saying this news is irrelevant in the "war".


Edit: BTW, the Quad Layer BluRay disk has double the speed of a normal 1 or 2 layer disk.

Lets not stop there. Why not discuss the 200gb 8 layer BluRay? I mean, this is very important information right? http://www.engadget.com/2006/04/28/t...dable-blu-ray/
