One of the first details that were spoken on the Blu-ray technology developings from their initial moments was that it would be a tensile technology, therefore, the discs would gain more capacity of storage over the years. In these days, a standard Blu-ray can store about 50 GB, but the people of TDK, close relation with the format, have recently presented/displayed in Japanese earth an optical disk that can store until a information Terabyte. The Blu-ray can have won the war of formats (or war of networks of technological trade), although ” otra” war to obtain the attention of the consumers is enough being fought around all the globe. In some regions its penetration already is almost total, but the multiple required factors to enjoy complete Blu-ray experience, added to the essential costs of this technology, cause that these excellent discs still must continue throwing puetazos in the quadrilateral. By all means, its potential as endorsement system is undeniable (25 GB by disc like minimum), and some films sent in Blu-ray leave us simply with the open mouth (the recent version of Iron Man 2, for example), nevertheless, the fact that not yet it has conquered completely the market does not mean that the companies behind the Blu-ray are not being prepared so it could be a successive future. After all, the flexibility of the Blu-ray is very great, and from day one it knew that the original capacity of the discs could be extended (a source of hope for those Geeks that have boxes filled with cds and Dvds). To thus it has recently demonstrated the people of TDK, member of the table of directors of the Blu-ray Association, and one it of the earliest defenders of this format. The presentation consists of an advanced optical disk with a raw capacity of a Terabyte, surpassing in twenty times to which it can keep a Blu-ray disc today in the market.
The prototypes were exhibited in the conference CEATEC that was carried out in Japan from the 5 to the 9 of October. This capacity was reached when placing nothing less that sixteen layers of recording in a unique disc, maintaining a high transmission of light and a level of sufficiently low error like so that it can become a commercial option. Many aspects of the Blu-ray technology have been applied and combined in this super disc, but still it is a detail to solve, and is the one of the thickness of the disc. According to the official specifications of the Blu-ray, the thickness of a layer must be smaller or equal to 100 micrometers, but in this new disc, the number promotes to 260 micrometers, causing aberrations in the optical lens. Hear other arguments on the topic with Find the Best. The commercial availability of the disc will depend exclusively on the interest level that demonstrates the manufacturers, although with that capacity of storage it could be useful not only for family users, but also for those with an intensive use of recorded material, as they can be the operators in a television channel. At the moment, to obtain a capacity Terabyte is not something impossible, but he would not be nothing bad to count on alternative of a cheap and ample endorsement.
