    100 TeraByte 3.5 inch shiny disc format

    Uses ultraviolet light rather than red (so 20th century) or blue (so naughties) light storing data via Atomic Holographic Nanotechnology.

    100TB is storage equivalent to 11,111 x 9GB DVDs. :devil:

    you mean movies on the new disks. (dvds are a format)

    It looks impressive but waht of cost?
    Ando do we really need THAT much space on a single disk?
    As an HDD format it would make more sense than as an optical disk drive format.
    Still it makes me feel that all these organizations (ie DVD forum and Blu Ray forum) are just giving the punters newer technology in trickles at a time.
    Rather than giving us a huge format to begin with, they give us slightly bigger formats one after the other.
    If u ask me this is intentional and they are just trying to milk us for our money!
    Bastards!!!!!!

    The Inquirer reports that...

    According to the Nikkei Business Daily, Pioneer has a new high storage capacity "DVD" type format in the works using a technique that will use ultraviolet lasers, which emit shorter wavelength rays than blue lasers.

    Apparently an ultraviolet beam writes data holes in a master disk, each separated by 70 nanometres, and Pioneer have solved the problems associated with scattering of the laser by developing a carbon mask using photosensitive resin.

    Pioneer's Ultraviolet-ray discs will provide 500GB of data per disc or some 20 times Blu-ray. Nice! :D
