TDK Reveals Prototype of 200GB Blu-ray Disc

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:12 pm

Digital recording media maker TDK claimed to have reached a landmark on Aug. 31 in the development of recordable media by announcing the prototype of a 200GB Blu-ray laser disc.

A 200GB Blu-ray laser disc doubles the capacity of TDK’s existing 100GB Blu-ray prototype. One of TDK’s new 200GB blue laser discs could store approximately 18 hours of high definition video (encoded at 24M bps), a TDK spokesperson said.

The initial Blu-ray disc standard allows for 25GB single-layer Blu-ray discs and 50GB dual-layer discs. However, a recent signal processing innovation stretches the physical limits of optical media, realizing 33.3GB capacity for each of the disc’s six layers, a TDK spokesperson said.
