Blu-ray Discs Increase Storage Capacity

Blu-ray MediaHawksM15 October 2010

What does 1TB of storage look like? Try a combination of multiple BDXL discs in the form of a data backup cartridge prototype archive system. LG-Hitachi has unveiled its maximum storage capacity system at an electronics show in Japan.

Similar to a network-attached storage device, the system holds four HDD bays for replication and two additional slots for cartridges; each cartridge can hold up to eight BDXL Blu-ray discs, equating the one terabyte of extra storage.

Due to its unprecedented storage capacity this new system could be used for archiving large quantities of data from hard drives to Blu-ray discs, or for HDTV storage purposes. Plus, archive retrieval is even easier with the inclusion of an RFID chip that can be scanned with a handheld device to reveal the data contained on each disc.

No pricing has been issued, but LG-Hitachi plans to release the system to market sometime next year.
