? The Blu-ray disc enables the recording, rewriting and
playback of HD video up to 27 GB of data on a single
sided single layer. It is enough to put 2.5 hours of
HDTV recording on it. It also can record over 13
hours of standard TV broadcasting

M Although the Blu-ray Disc specification has been finalized,
Engineers continue to work on advancing the technology.
Auad-layer (100 GB) discs have been demonstrated on a drive
with modified optics
M ºVd has developed a three-layer technology that allows putting
both standard-definition DVD data and HD data on a BD/’standard)
DVD combination. If successfully commercialized, this would
enable the consumer to purchase a disc that can be played on
current DVD players
M In December 2008, Pioneer dorporation unveiled a 400 GB
Blu-ray Disc ’containing 16 data layers, 25 GB each) that will be
compatible with current players after a firmware update. Its

2010±13 for rewritable discs. Ongoing development is under way to
create a 1 B Blu-ray Disc as soon as 2013.


? Audio and video will reach higher qualities with large
storage space.
? Look for BD with more than two layers as the
technology is further refined.
? Sony has made the disc with size V00GB already.
? Pioneer announced on August 5, 2008 ,that they
have got success in making BD with
