By the time this comes to market most media will have moved on from disc based media.
Does anyone remember how many layers they got on a Blu-Ray disc in the lab? I remember it was something silly - like 10 or so.
Considering that a standard Blu-Ray can hold 5 DVDs (4.GB per DVD, 25GB per BR layer), and a sual-layer BR can hold 10 - if they come out with a 10-layer BR, that'll do half the storage of the GE TheoryDisc (my name, I'll be accepting royalties just as soon as my trademark is approved) without obsoleting one's collection.
From what I have heard, most movies dont even need all or very much of the space the current blu-rays have (most use around half the space I believe I heard). So just more storage space is not going to bring too many advantages yet.
In any event, it is not going to kill bluray as it is meant to be read on bluray drives
100 GB would easily hold a season or two of a television series.
I don't think I've heard about BD in labs, but I do recall someone (I think IBM) testing 20 layers on a DVD
I already have.
That would be nice. I've got an entire cabinet of DVDs for TV series, some lasting 10 seasons, that just take up SOOOOOO much room! No, I won't get rid of the boxes and get an accordion-type organizer - I like the boxes, even if they're bulky. Makes "browsing" easier.
You don't recall when you could pick up one-two episodes on VHS take, and the season boxes were absolute monsters. No, I didn't collect those.
tell me about it...
I'm almost there with you pfp... Those look like the same shelves that I have two of... and I have a run of DVDs across the top + am using another shelf on another bookshelf and have an older/smaller rack full of more DVDs too.
I have been thinning mine out a bit lately, though, some because of Blu ray upgrades and others because I realize I will not re-watch as much as I thought when I first bought them.
But I could go for having entire seasons on a single disc of shows I really like. That would also be cool for "shuffle play" to watch some random favorite episodes.
Good Gods PFP thats a lot of disks. Thank God I started my collection in Divx format, I have everything on two Hard Drives.
Actually thats not even all of them. this rounds it all out.
Hmmm.... I see both releases of Star Wars, TNG, DSN, Enterprise, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Total Recall, but no Toy Story: Ultimate Toy Box, or Lord of the Rings?
Yeah, my library is definitely wimpy compared to those collections! I have only a couple hundred DVDs and a LONG way to go to measure up... :lol:
