Sony Blu-Ray 1 Layer Disc (hi-res)
Sony makes some more headlines in high capacity Blu-Ray disc space.

Sony confirmed again (see our report from early August) that the Sony Playstation 3 will have a blu-ray disc drive with a press-release.

Sony also is about to show a 200GB Blu-Ray disc that they developed. This new Blu-Ray disc has 8 layers. Current Blu-Ray discs have a capacity of 54GB. The 200GB blu-ray disc is a technology show-case and no plans are yet made when it comes to market. See PCWorld story on Yahoo.

About Blu-Ray Rom:
BD-ROM format has a memory size of 54 GB (dual layer, single side), which is 6 times larger than that of DVD-ROM, and has the potential of becoming an ideal medium to distribute next generation entertainment content from movies and music to computer applications. Standardization of this format is currently underway lead by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA).
MPEG2-TS, the signal compression technology used in Hi-Vision TV broadcasting, is also used in BD, making it possible to reproduce extremely high resolution HD video images. With the introduction of the latest high-compression code/decode technology (MPEG4-AVC, VC-1), playback of high-quality video images from HD video signals becomes possible even under a low bit-rate environment.
