Optical and magnetic storage manufacturer Moser Baer India has developed the world’s first high speed 8x Blu-ray disc (BDR), which is a major advance in next generation optical media formats. The 8x Blu-ray disc (BDR) technology has been jointly developed with newly acquired OM&T, the former R&D subsidiary of Philips.
