Panasonic Introduces World's First 6x Write-Once Blu-ray Discs
Panasonic announced today that it has developed the world's first Write-Once Blu-ray Discs (BD-R) with 6x writing speed. The new discs will be available in Japan with both 25GB and 50GB capacities in July.
The new 6X discs have a maximum data transfer speed of 216Mbps, which is 20% faster than that of 16X DVD-R discs. The new discs have a wide power margin at any writing speeds from 1X to 6X. This enables high-quality recording, even if the drive's laser power fluctuates, resulting in greater overall drive compatibility.
Blu-ray disc drives compatible with 6X write-once Blu-ray discs are planned to be commercialized in Japan by the end of September 2008.
