[TPU] Pioneer Develops 256 GB Blu-ray Disc

post #1 of 11

Pioneer is developing a new media based on the Blu-ray standard, which offers 256 GB of unformatted capacity. The capacity is achieved by recording data in a staggering eight layers, double that of Blu-ray XL, which relies on four layers to achieve 100 GB of capacity. Pioneer claims it has even made strides towards an even newer Blu-ray media that could, in the near future, offer 512 GB of unformatted capacity. The 256 GB Blu-ray disc could prove useful for making large data backups, or even imaging your SSD. Pioneer isn't the only player in the high-capacity optical disc game. Sony and Panasonic collaborated to announce ArchivalDisc, an optical disc that offers 300 GB of capacity, except that it doesn't stick to the Blu-ray standard, and you'll need specially made disc-drives to use them. Since Pioneer's disc builds on the existing Blu-ray standard, it will be cheaper for optical drive makers to adopt it.

I think the old one supports 250.

This, All the way.

Always hearing about it. Even heard about it last year or 2 years ago. Never see it on the Shelves though. I have suspicions that they are either unstable or they are still theorising on it.

but then there almost pointless then. The only 'people' who will end up with these are companies or governments who want to long term archive data. Im not sure if this is true but don’t you feel the industry doesn’t really want to give consumers that much long term storage?

because if they did they would be peddling this shiz as fast as possible against the tide of internet cloud storage and downloads.


I mean, what is Sony playing at? 4K streaming is here ( which apparently manages to make it 'nearly' to about blueray quality) if they really want to push a new ultra format then they better get the kit and the discs out this month! As beyond a certain quality threshold nobody is going to give a crap about discs in the next 5 years unless they actively wow people right now and say look, see this is how incredible true low compression 4k looks from a disc vs streaming

Either they don't want is to have them or intend to milk their outdated tech as long as possible otherwise we'd have had those 100GB discs they touted long ago but they won't release them.

I've seen enough "Scientists improve storage density by factor of x !" stories over the past few years to know that until I can buy it the product is vapourware.

You can buy the 100gig blanks. They're about $46.

My Blu Ray burner can burn the 128, but I don't think blanks exist.

I wonder how much a 256gig blu ray would cost?

Regarding the bolded, I'm wondering the same thing. These high-density Blu-ray disks are cool and all, but it's at the point where you could almost get a small HDD for the cost of a 128GB BD-XL disk. blinksmiley.gif

Yes but for long term storage, a disc is better than a disk. thumb.gif
