Sony’s PD(ProDisc) format is specially developed for professional applications and it is not Blu-ray and not compatible with Blu-ray. It uses higher Data transferrates than BD and PD hasn’t archieved any format standardisations. From the press release This product is intended for exclusive use with the Professional Disc System ('XDCAM"). This disc cannot be used with 'Blu-ray Disc" or 'Professional Disc for DATA" equipment.

This is really suitable for broadcasters such as the one I work for, as even professional digital tape formats are prone to dropout, ageing after 5-10 years even when stored properly, etc. Currnetly for us, 1inch tape is archived to digibeta, D3 will go to Digi or Digi’s replacement, as will digibeta to ???. The new backup medium and possibly playout medium will be optical. When IT systems get much faster, with multiple redundancy, playout for a disitributed network live between broadcasters may be a new way to do things.
