Sony's BD-RE MID Code released!

Postby dolphinius_rex on Wed Jan 18, 2006 5:49 pm

It looks like we've had our first look at a BluRay MID code finally! Many thanks to Wesociety of CDFreaks for his unveiling:

If you look at the first picture on the page, you'll see the MID is listed as SONY 001. We also see that this is a rewritable disc (BD-RE).

We should be seeing more MID codes appearing in the next couple months, but I think it's good for the format to see that this media is out there, and we know what to expect when we finally get to order it! :)

Glad you liked it. ;)
Keep in mind that this is a PROTOTYPE Sony BD-RE disc.
So it is slightly possible that the MID might change.

Yeah, cuz goodness knows they have *SO* much time to be making major adjustments like that, with their release data coming in so soon :wink:

Sarcasm aside, it's possible it will change, but very VERY unlikely. Verbatim on the other hand is currently holding back their MID code data from EVERYONE, because they really *DO* expect it might change! :o

Hello and thanks for all the info

My question about the nest genetation blank media is:
because "pits ans lands" going to be recorded in the Blu-Ray format
in a more tiny way on an disc of the same size of 12 cm
is there any information around about the expected longevity of burned BD-R ?




------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Blue-Ray are already used for quite a time in the industry but protected by a cartridge
and I know that TDK is putting on the market BD-R discs with an extra
"DURABIS-2" hard coating in order to prevent scratches.
But they say only: « problems are "almost" eradicated »


Title: TDK’s DURABIS Coating Technology Makes Blu-ray a Reality
http://www.tdk-europe.presscentre.com/c ... 20Releases
« Recording this amount of data on a disc physically the same size as a DVD requires unprecedented recording media stability and precision. Blu-ray recording uses a narrow track pitch and high recording density. This and the fact the recording layer on Blu-ray (0.2mm) and DVD (0.6mm) sits closer to the disc’s surface means that dirt, grime and scratches on the disc can cause more serious recording and playback problems than on a CD.
With DURABIS these problems are almost eradicated »
