100GB Blu-ray discs

Sharp has shown that their new blue-violet laser diode allows working in an efficient way to double storage capacity than dual layer Blu-rays.

According to the information provided, the new VR-100BR1 disc can be written only once and it’s associated with BDXL format specifications, which was announced just three month ago by the Blu-ray Disc Association.

TDK, on the other side, said that their new discs will be on sale on September, while Verbatim will do it during the first months of 2011, giving their most outstanding rivals a great edge.

Before you go to buy these discs we have to point that the multimedia based on the BDXL format could reach to 128 GB by adding a fourth layer, but these discs files won’t be compatible with current Blu-ray readers.
