Blu-ray Disc Association Develops New Technology to Increase Capacity

Blu-ray MediaHawksM01 July 2010

Blu-Ray MediaBlu-ray discs have been on their way to taking over the home movie market for quite a while, but now the Blu-ray Disc Association is stepping up its game. They have developed what is being called the BDXL format which allows a Blu-ray Disc to hold up to 128GB of information in a quadruple-layer format – a significant increase from the average 50GB high-definition Blu-ray discs on the market today.

The new BDXL format will also come in a triple-layer version, which will be rewriteable, however the first release will only be available for data storage.

“The BDA worked diligently to create an extension of the Blu-ray Disc format that leverages the physical structure of the design of the disc to create even more storage capacity,” said Victor Matsuda, Blu-ray Disc Association Global Promotions Committee chair.

Sony has not as of yet agreed to take the new BDXL capture and playback product to the consumer market, but admits that it may not be long before players may be capable of playing the BDXL format as well as the conventional 2GB and 50GB Blu-ray discs. Both types of formats were developed from the same technology.
