The Blu-ray Disc Association has unveils new formal enhancements of the Blu-ray format. The new enhancements are targeted at increasing functionality for commercial and consumer applications of the Blu-ray format.

Among the new enhancements are the specifications for new writable discs that are expected to be published in the next few months. The new specs will include BDXL, which is a high capacity recordable and rewritable disc and IH-BD, known as Intra-Hybrid discs.

The BDXL spec is for commercial segments needing a recordable media with tons of space for broadcasting, medical and document imaging firms. These write-once discs will have 100GB and 120GB capacities. The IH-BD format will integrate a single layer BD-Rom and a single layer BD-RE into a single disc allowing the user to view but not overwrite published data along with the ability to include other relevant data onto the disc.
