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.
