Mitsubishi and Maxell Announce 8cm BD-R/RE Media

Postby Ian on Thu Aug 02, 2007 11:21 am

Media manufacturers are really throwing their support behind Hitachi's new Blu-ray Disc camcorders. I wonder if we'll see this stuff in the US.

Mitsubishi Chemical - http://www.mcmedia.co.jp/japanese/news/press/0065.html

Maxell - http://www.maxell.co.jp/jpn/news/2007/news070802.html

Neither company has revealed pricing.. which means its probably expensive. :-?

These discs are a joint effort between Hitachi Maxell and Mitsubishi/Verbatim, so either one claiming to be first would be accurate :wink:
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

Imation Introduces 'TDK Life on Record' Brand

Already putting that TDK brand to work...
"Life on Record" sounds pretty cheesy though...
