    Default BlueRay old hat? TDK reveal 1TB CD!

    TDK develops 1TB optical disc, leaves other optical storage feeling emasculated



    We've heard about 1TB-sized optical discs in the past, but TDK has now revealed a 1TB monster of its own at CEATEC. Unlike existing Blu-rays which use four recording layers at most, TDK's creation features 16 layers on both sides of the disc, each capable of storing up to 32GB apiece. If you're keeping track of the optical storage arms race, that's seven more gigabytes per layer than Pioneer's 400GB and 500GB disc achievements made back in 2008. TDK's prototype also has the potential to leverage existing Blu-ray technologies, since it's made from a material already found in BDs and shares the same beam aperture. On the down side, the current version's recording layers measure 260μm -- that's more than twice as thick as its Blu-ray counterpart -- and causes aberrations in today's fat-layer-hating optical lenses. Outside of its Biggest Loser qualifications, though, TDK says "its commercialization depends on disc manufacturers." Considering the company has yet to sell the 10-layer 320GB discs revealed at CEATEC 2009, however, we're doubtful this 1TB improvement will hit stores anytime soon.

    I cant see the need for such a large storage disk. Sooner of later your going to see usb drives shoot up in storage size and allsorts of media will run off them.

    Disks are too easy to scratch and damage, where memory sticks are more robust. and for that much data im sure i would not be picking a cd.

    Indeed. Besides I'm sure Sony will bring out a BDROM+ or something that holds slightly more data, then state that HD movies actually need more than 1TB of space and then stomp all over the competition despite it being a format that hasn't been properly formalised....

    Also expect the BDROM+ player to be in the PS4...

    Is it just me or has TDK just got one of those Clear protective CD's off the top of one of their 25 pack's and stuck it in a cabinet?

    Physical media will be obsolete eventually anyway. What with the 'Cloud' etc.

    I agree with you, but do you think people would have said the same if you showed them a DVD back in the days of the floppy disk?
