Talking Blue Ray Technologies and CDC Reach Exclusive Agreement for Super Blu-Ray Discs

Blue Ray Technologies and Chatsworth Data Corporation Reach Exclusive Agreement for Super Blu-Ray Discs

Deal would see single Blu-ray discs that could hold 68 million pages of documents - "Our goal is to store the entire Library of Congress on one disc," says Blue Ray Technologies founder Erick Hansen

Spokane WA (PRWEB) September 9, 2008 -- Blue Ray Technologies is pleased to announce it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Chatsworth Data Corp. to capture data from forms and documents that can be converted to the Blu-ray disc format, the next generation disc that allows 25-50 GB per disc at present. That would mean each disc could contain from 1.6 million to 34 million pages of documents, depending on their format.

Furthermore, Blue Ray is developing its four-layer 100GB BD that would hold 68 million pages of RTF documents on one disc.

"Our goal is to put the entire Library of Congress on a single disc," said Blue Ray founder and DVD pioneer Erick Hansen. "We can't replace their original Gutenberg Bible or Declaration of Independence draft, but our lofty target is to capture their 34 million books on a single disc within two years."

And those documents could be well protected. Hansen says his company is creating proprietary digital processing and retrieval system for ultra-sensitive documents based on 512K encryption that would be valued by governments and corporations whose data cannot be allowed to be compromised. Present state-of-the-art is only 128K encryption.

"We plan to be America's largest independent digital solutions provider," said Hansen.

"We expect some Blu-ray players to come into the $200-$250 range by the end of the year," predicted Hansen, considered an veteran expert in the field. "That will cause the market explode."

Regarding the recent agreement with Chatsworth Data Corporation, Hansen said, "I could not be happier than to work with a cutting edge company whose document capturing technology runs from vote tabulation and intelligence gathering to healthcare and data management. We look forward to working with them and developing new technologies for the 21st Century and beyond."

Under the agreement, the data from clients would be put into an electronic format and encrypted using Blue Ray Technologies encryption technology.

CDC president and CEO Sid L. Anderson noted, "This is a very significant agreement for Chatsworth Data Corporation. Blue Ray Technologies is the standard in the field of high level encryption technology and for it to choose Chatsworth Data Corporation as its data capture component is a real accomplishment for the Company."

The U.S. Blu-ray pre-recorded disc market will double by the end of the year, with 2008 sales reaching 45 million units, according to top UK research firm Future Source.

There will be plenty of room for independents like Blue Ray Technologies as the majors are not covering everything. On big titles, the share of total sales being taken by BD has already hit 5-6% and by Q4 it is possible we'll see a 10% or even 12% share for some of the really big hitters, the report claims.

Regarding BD-R/BD-RE Media Demand in the US Future Source expects limited demand short-to-medium term due to: penetration of Blu-ray Re-Writer Drives, copy protection of pre-recorded BD titles and broadcast flagging to prevent the copying of HD broadcasts. Also, consequently, we expect prices of BD-R/BD-RE media to remain high in this timeframe, according to Jeremy Wills, consultant at the company.

By 2012, between 40% and 50% of consumer expenditure on video discs will be allocated to Blu-ray according to the latest analysis from Future Source.

What has been disappointing to date for the content companies has been the lack of catalogue title sales, exactly what BRT can help with, though the studios are showing no signs of reducing their interest in catalogue product.

There are now 90,000 DVD titles available according to a key report yesterday, and only 6,000 on Blu-ray, leaving BRT, and the whole industry, with much opportunity.

Blu-ray titles will account for about 12 percent of video sales by the end of the year, the research firm said, and will rise to 61 percent by 2012. In a statement, Future Source managing director Jim Bottoms said, "What has impressed me most is the way the retailers are supporting Blu-ray -- and how much space they are giving over to Blu-ray discs."

Quite easy to make 6000 niko, a common way of calculating them is all US releases + all UK releases + all German releases + all (insert other countries here) = Total Blu-ray releases. Even though there may be title duplicates, if it's a different pressing with a different serial number, it's a different release.

There is STILL no way that they could reach 6,000 from 770 releases in the USA where more titles have been released than anywhere else I imagine. How many "different" titles have been released worldwide?

Since SD DVD has more regions wouldn't using that same "method" (BS method IMO), wouldn't that put SD DVD at over a million then?

6000 BD's is way too high even if you are counting titles' from all over the world. I think the figure's in the article are just incorrect or they have some strange method of counting disc's

I think the word is exaggeration and quite a bit of it.

And the only system that will be able to read these.... PS3.

Everyone else will have to buy a new stand-alone player to accommodate this new size.

JK, haha! But wouldn't be surprised!

It's quite possible that the executive in question is talking out of his ass.
