TDK to showcase Quad-Layer 100GB Blu-ray Disc at CES 2006

I just posted the article TDK to showcase Quad-Layer 100GB Blu-ray Disc at CES 2006.

 Back in  May 2005, TDK announced  a Quad-Layer Blu-ray prototype that  features double the capacity of dual layer  Blu-ray media.  Since then, they have worked on their prototype to...

yeah just phone ahead now to arrange the loan you will need to buy this crap

Colossal Storage will be working on a FIXED HEAD drive version having 000 ms seek and 0 ms latency times with Terabits/sec transfer rates possible with 10 terabytes on a 3.5 in disk having infinite read/writes. http://colossalstorage.net

it seems that inphase is asking tons of license fees as it expects holographic technology as a niche product. if i remember correctly, h-rom disk is expected to be less than 100usd. 1st gen bd player won’t be able to read quad layer disk at least last two layers; it will be very expensive as tdk is aiming for professional data backup. maybe hdd is the way to go though i hope inphase license its techology at reasonable price so that the techology will penatrate to the consumer markets

until this company delivers the prototype or proof of concept, i will bet that this is a vaporware at best if not a scam, unfortunately. if this becomes a reality in 3 to 5 years as this company claims it, then i will buy it. they claim the drive will be less than 1000usd & the replacement disk is less than 50 for 100 terabyte :r i am not an expert on quantom physics, but i don’t think changing state in atomic level isn’t trivial if nearly impossible. btw, have you read the entangled atomic particle communication ? it’s pure sci-fi. the quantom communication has been dream for many but it was only successful for very short distance not anywhere in universe. :r my conclusion: fun to read but a scam :wink:

i was taking about the colossal storage; sorry for the off topic :stuck_out_tongue:

QuadDamage take an a whole new meaning.

Wow! Now I can lose 100 g at a time with a scratch. I bet it will cost more than the 100 g hard drive they are trying to stop us from using. :X

well i prefer one of these http://www.maxell-usa.com/ Edited link length in order to preserve page layout.

TDK didn’t mention their quad-layer product when I talked to them at CES.
