Blu-Ray Pushing The Limit

Thanks to a quadruple-layer Blu-ray disc, 128GB of data can now be stored on a single disc, which is about 27x more than your standard DVD!  Thanks to the new Blu-ray standard “BDXL” which allows for the quadruple layer disc, but also has pushed the limits on their triple layer discs, which can now exceed up over 100GB of a single disc.  As of right now, you won’t find any BDXL compliant players on the market for home users, this standard has really been developed, and will be used for professional applications such as media imaging and archiving.  As more data intensive 3D animations become more popular, we will eventually see the BDXL standard move towards the home market, but that is still a ways down the road.
