Verbatim is introducing 100GB Blu-ray recordable discs into Europe; the discs will run on BDXL-compatible readers and writers and are certified by the BDA (Blu-ray Disc Association). â€œVerbatimâ€™s 100GB BDXL Blu-ray Discs are ideal for all professionals dealing with image or file production that need high-capacity discs for archiving purposes,â€ explains RÃ¼diger Theobald, EMEA Marketing Director at Verbatim.
â€œConsumers can rely on meticulous quality controls during our manufacturing process to ensure Verbatimâ€™s Blu-ray products will never fail to disappoint. Backed by the expertise of Verbatimâ€™ s parent company Mitsubishi Kagaku Media, Verbatim remains the number one optical storage media brand worldwide.â€
The high capacity recordable discs enable users to backup high resolution photography, music or HD video files at 4x write speed, and provide a capacity to store over 40,000 photos, 20,000 songs or 8 hours of HD video.
In Japan, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media also plans to introduce a professional 100GB â€˜Enterprise Gradeâ€™ BD-R BDXLTM developed especially for digital archiving of corporate documents.
Hmmmm, interesting for a news post, so there were only 100GB discs in Japan and the US?
The only XL (or 100 GB) BD-R media available in Europe are made by TDK.
I wonder how much those Verbatims will cost and what their quality would be like.
According to a Dutch site, â‚¬45 a piece I’ll post about it on the news, thanks for the tip!
