Blu-ray Discs Expand Capacity

Blu-ray Corporation has sent word that it has expanded the capacity of its read and write Blu-ray discs.

The BDXL specification, which is targeted primarily at commercial segments such as broadcasting, medical and document imaging enterprises with significant archiving needs, will provide customers with write-once options on 100GB and 128GB capacity discs and rewritable capability on 100GB discs. The discs reach these capacities by incorporating three to four recordable layers. A consumer version of BDXL is also expected, particularly in those regions where BD recorders have achieved broad consumer acceptance.”

Mainly aimed at the archiving industry for professionals that are at the momemt using magnetic media to archive their data the new disc formats will require new hardware – the new standards are IH-BD and BDXL. IH-BD (Intra Hybrid Blu-ray Disc) works by allowing users to use part of the disc as a write once with data already stored on a different layer that is not touched.

The Intra-Hybrid Blu-ray Disc (IH-BD) incorporates a single BD-ROM layer and a single BD-RE layer so as to enable the user to view, but not overwrite, critical published data while providing the flexibility to include relevant personal data on the same physical disc.
