[QUOTE=Ibex;2747843]Before you get too nostalgic, didn’t HD DVD-R discs use an organic dye?
And we know how much everyone loves LTH BD-R. ;)
Out of curiosity, did anyone produce an inorganic HD DVD-R?[/QUOTE]
I believe HD DVD is avlittle similair to BD-R Its also readable with an ultraviolet laser like blu ray only its limited to 15GB instead of 25GB.
But i do think Panasonic BD-R are the most trust whorty blank media for digital archiving because of the inorganic dye.
All the failures in most blank media is all organic and degrades quickly even with just a little sun light.
So to me Blu ray is a big step forward.
I know mitsubishi mad a Blu ray disc that can last up to 200 years Enterprise grade but it’s still not released to the public to bad.
The 200 years lifetime is calculated by the one and only real test center ISO/IEC thats also really trustable not like most companys doing their own tests.
Hope they will still release it someday.
