Default Ritek touts 10 layer HD DVD, Blu-ray media

10 layer HD media? Yes ladies and gentlemen, we have it, and we owe it all to Ritek. Available in both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray flavours, these delicious discs offer up to 250GB of storage… Not bad a for a few inches of… Well… Whatever these new fangled discs are constructed out of. Who knows… Perhaps corn? Back to the point, Ritek have really pulled a rabbit out of the hat with this one.

According to Engadget, we should all go and “Forget single-layer media, that dual-layer stuff that was all the rage last year, and even the triple-layered discs that got announced just days ago.”

All-in-all, a major, shock announcement! The fact that Ritek boasts that they can apply their technology to both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray is a nice little bonus too. No word on pricing of availability, but in your face, Toshiba.

lol I don't understand the "in your face toshiba" part
I understand that some electronic sites love Sony to death due to their spyware and fake movie reviewers. But if both formats could possibly have 10 layers why is it in Toshiba's face and not Sony's? I love biased reporting

This is actually quite amusing because they announced they can make the disc, but there isn't a laser for it. So it's basically nothing until they develop a laser for it as well.

I don't assume things like that until it's proven to/not to work. Very very very very good chance they don't, but I by no means am an engineer creating future media discs.

It has only just been submitted - it is not approved yet.

Read the original article, you know the one that's linked in the article that was linked to the article that was posted here:

"While those numbers do sound impressive, Ritek officials point out that the real barrier to this advancement is the lack of reader and writer laser diode technology to support the additional eight layers above the current standard."
