Toshiba Corporation quietly announced on the first day of CES that the company has developed a triple-layer HD DVD-ROM (read only) disc with a capacity of 51 gigabytes.

Ritek claims (CES) to not only have been able to produce a three-layer and four-layer HD optical discs, but to have successfully designed HD media with a full 10 layers. The company says that its multi-layer process can be applied to both HD DVD and Blu-ray formats. The real barrier to this advancement is the lack of R/W laser diode technology to support the additional eight layers above the current standard.

Slash discussion: http://hardware.slashdot.org/hardwar.../0016250.shtml

My personal thoughts on this matter... is if they're close to producing and reading ten layers... why stop. This technology is so close to the holographic techniques others have developed... why not change the format to cube/crystal and TB storage... I need the space and these silly disks roll around too much.

Uh, the real barrier to this advancement is "the lack of R/W laser diode technology to support the additional eight layers above the current standard".

Isn't that kind of like saying the real barrier to cars getting 200 MPG is the lack of an engine that will support the additional 170 MPG above the current standard?

One reason why it was "quietly" announced.
