The format wars between Blu-ray and HD DVD are still fresh in many minds and already researchers have devised a new format of DVD that will be able to store a massive increase in movie data compared to current optical discs. The new format DVD are expected to hit the market in the next five years and be able to store 10,000 films on a single disc.

According to some researchers discs with that much capacity are the key to being able to offer 3D and ultra high definition entertainment. The DVD would reportedly be the same thickness as traditional DVDs and use nano technology to increase the data sorted.

The tech behind the breakthrough could eventually lead the discs that can store 200,000 films and a single DVD. The so-called ultra-DVD would be able to store about 10,000GB according to researchers. DVDs today hold a mere 8.5GB.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
