Verbatim Launch 100GB Blu-ray Disk - Verbatim have launched a 100GB Blu-ray disk, ideal for archiving high resolution images.
Certified by the BDA (Blu-ray Disc Association), the high capacity recordable Blu-ray Discs from Verbatim enable users to backup high resolution photography, music or HD video files at 4x write speed. With 100GB storage, the BDXL ™ discs can approximately store over 40,000 photos, 20,000 songs or 8 hours of HD video.
Blu-ray Discs offer significantly more storage capacity compared to DVD and CD media resulting in far fewer discs being required to save large volumes of data. Standard Blu-ray Discs provide storage capacities of 25GB for a single-layer disc and 50GB for a dual-layer disc, but Verbatim’s BDXL™ disc includes a third layer to give it a storage capacity of 100GB. The discs come with a specialised hard coat surface to protect them against scratches.
Verbatim’s BDXL™ 100GB Blu-ray Discs are available to buy across Europe in October 2012 and cost £36.
