Pioneer Comes Up With A 16-Layer 400GB Optical Disc, Possibly Compatible With Blu-ray

pioneer-disc_8agNM_54(2).jpgTo get the picture quality resulting from watching a Blu-ray disc, one of the overlooked but important variables is the amount of storage space on the disc itself. 25 GB is a heck of a lot to fit on one optical disc, but thanks to Pioneer it's now next to nothing. The company has just announced that they've produced a 16 layer, read-only optical disc with an astounding storage capacity of 400 GB. In the past it's been tough to obtain a clear signal from multi-layer discs but with Pioneer's new creation, the amount of noise has been reduced significantly. What might be of significance in the future is that the new discs have specs that are very similar to those of Blu-ray discs signaling possible compatibility. Pioneer plans to make a more formal announcement around the middle of July.
