4k Blu-Ray Seems To Be On The Way As 100GB Discs Are Here And Can Be Mass Produced

blu-ray laserSingulus make disc duplication machines and without the need for mass production of physical media, there’s no need for their services. Considering this, it seems likely that a 4k Blu-ray format is in the works as Singulus have completed the design and testing of a 100GB disc duplication facility. At the very least, they’ve now made the format possible.

Here’s some of their official press release, found via CNet:

The further advancement of today’s Blu-ray Discs, the triple-layer Blu-ray Discs with 100 GB storage capacity, is the preferred playback medium for the new 4K technology. With the realization of a new and specifically designed data compression method for the ultra-high definition technology, the storage volume per information layer can be increased from 25 GB to 33 GB. In its committees, the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) is currently discussing the specifications of new, global standards. Singulus Technologies already completed the marketable concept of a new replication line.

As this new format is based upon basic Blu-ray standards we should be able to avoid a war between different providers next time around, side stepping all of that VHS-Betamax nonsense.

The players shouldn’t be too expensive either, though 4k TV sets are a long way off from being cheap just year – and, depending on the size of your home, some way from being a sensible purchase.

Still, I know that I’m going to upgrade when I can and I’m glad that physical media will probably be upgrading with me.

Now all I ask is that the data format being used somehow facilitates HFR… though, actually, maybe 100GB isn’t going to be big enough for that. Back to work, Singulus. 250GB next, please.
