128GB Blu-Ray BDXL Disc Specification Finalized

Monday, June 28th, 2010


Announcing it in April 3rd, 2010, Blu-ray Disc Association now has finalized the BDXL Blu-Ray disc specification. With more layers added to the disk, it now supports 100GB and 128GB write-once discs and 100GB rewritable discs for commercial applications.

With the finalization, manufacturers now will be able to obtain license and start producing actual products. BDXL-compatible players/recorders will support all existing Blu-Ray disks; however, existing Blu-Ray players, including your PS3, will not be able to play back BDXL disks, since it requires a stronger laser head that can dig up to 3 or 4 layers. So hold your horses for now if you need that spacious storage room or have a taste for proper 3D Blu-Ray experience (see below).
