Sony and Panasonic team up to bring 300GB Optical Disc

The use of optical discs to store contents may have dwindled over the years due to the rise of faster and more pocket-friendly alternative, but this doesn’t seem to bother Sony and Panasonic one bit as they announced their recent plans of developing a disc with a recording capacity of 300GB.

Apart from having the highest storage capacity known to man, the duo is planning to include other features such dust and water resistance up to a certain degree, not mention having the ability to withstand certain humidity and temperature.

Further details about the mythical 300GB optical disc remains scarce as of the time of writing, but it’s been said that the two firms are looking to launch this product by the end of 2015.

    For me this is a good invention since kung may cd na may capacity na 300GB,mas nanaisin ko na lng na magdala ng ganito kaysa disk drives na mas makakapal at mabigat(at about 1 TB meron kang storage device na mas manipis sa lapis)kaso nga lng doubt ko kapag na scratch,does it mean byebye CD???suggestion ko lng i think they need to use sapphire crystal(just like in iphone’s camera cover) para almost scratch-proof =))

      one problem you might face is that the new optical disc might not be compatible with the device you’re planning to use it with. bringing a portable hard drive or even a flash drive is still the safer solution if you want to access your stored data on any device.

      if this optical disc technology would one day replace bluray, then it’s a welcome innovation.
