AD Blu-Ray Part Deux

On March 10th Sony released their newest product for personal and professional use:  the  “Archival Disc.” Sony collaborated with Panasonic to create the newest Blu-Ray, expanding the digital data storage, going into the not too distant future. Sony explained that:

“Both Sony and Panasonic aim to launch systems with a recording capacity of 300 GB per disc from summer 2015, onwards. In addition, both companies plan to leverage their respective technologies to further expand the recording capacity per disc to 500 GB and 1 TB.” 

Whoa 1TB this must be meant for the influx of 4k Televisions soon to rush into our living rooms. We all see the writings on the wall and its great to see that Sony, while going through a lot of company wide restructuring, are keeping a eye on future markets.

Here are some specs and charts provided by Sony via their website for all our Tech Heads:
