Wow, this would be amazing if it becomes available.
BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | How to fit 300 DVDs on one disc
I want some , then i can put my bond collection on one disk lol
I'm all for innovation, especially with Blu-ray films ranging anywhere between £15 - £20 each and the industry complains about piracy.
It's good to see costs are being looked at from the development stage and not only on the capacity of a disc. Apparently Blu-ray can scale upto 200GB per disc eventually without any firmware upgrade. It's all to do with layers.
Considering affordable blu-ray recording is still a few years away, something like this in the distant future doesnt really excite me tbh
Could you imagine trying to write 300 movie names on the disk with a CD pen! You would need a small note pad to accompany each disk ^^
Why would anyone want this tech for movies? Seriously, we are in the early days of IPv6, 50mb+ Broadband, WiMAX, Virgin Media OnDemand, Tiscali TV via Broadband, AppleTV, PS3 and XBox360 media streaming. We even have 3D games moving to an online streaming world (OnLive, et al).
By the time this tech matures to market - let alone get down to a mainstream price point - streaming media would have completely won the format (non-)war.
