Sharp’s 100GB Triple-Layer Blu-ray Disc ships July 30

Sharp will ship the world first triple-layer Blu-ray Disc media, that extends the storage capacity of Blu-ray Discs to 100GB. The firts samples will be available in Japan beginning July 30, 2010.

With model name VR-100BR1, the new media enables recording approximately 12 hours of terrestrial digital TV broadcasts or approximately 8.6 hours of BS digital TV broadcasts. Now you will be able to record all episodes of Futurama into a single disc, long-duration HDTV programs or entire photo album of your grandma 🙂

 

Major Features

  1. World’s first triple-layer Blu-ray Disc media featuring large 100GB recording storage capacity.

This disc media is the first in the world to conform to the new BDXL™ format specification that extends the storage capacity of Blu-ray Discs by increasing the number of recording layers. The dual-layer structure used up to now has been augmented with an additional layer where image data can be recorded to create a new triple-layer structure. This design doubles the recording storage capacity (to 100GB) compared to existing dual-layer discs (50GB). This makes it possible to record approximately 12 hours of terrestrial digital TV broadcasts or approximately 8.6 hoursof BS digital TV broadcasts in DR mode (recorded with the image quality exactly as broadcast), or store other long-duration video content, all on a single disc, while preserving the same high-definition image quality of the original.

  1. “Hard coat” process provides peace of mind for users by protecting important video data from scratches and fingerprint contamination.

A “hard coat” process applied to the disc surface forms a protective barrier coating to protect stored data from scratches and dirt that may cause read and write errors.

  1. Users can print directly on discs down to 24 mm inner diameter.

Wide print area of 24 mm inner diameter and 118 mm outer diameter for disc labeling. In addition to enabling vivid color labeling to be printed over nearly the entire disc, oil-based or water-based marker pens can be used to hand-write labels on these discs.
