Sony And Panasonic have announced the next generation optical discs, the two companies are calling this new optical storage ‘Archival Disk’.
This new optical disc from Sony and Panasonic will come with 300GB of storage, and the first ones will be launched this summer and will be followed by even bigger storage disks offering 500GB and 1TB of space.
Optical discs have excellent properties to protect themselves against the environment, such as dust-resistance and water-resistance, and can also withstand changes in temperature and humidity when stored. They also allow inter-generational compatibility between different formats, ensuring that data can continue to be read even as formats evolve. This makes them robust media for long-term storage of content. Recognizing that optical discs will need to accommodate much larger volumes of storage going forward, particularly given the anticipated future growth in the archive market, Sony and Panasonic have been engaged in the joint development of a standard for professional-use next-generation optical discs.
