Blu-ray Disc Association approves BDXL specs

Blu-ray Disc Association approves final BDXL format specs

The BDXL specs allow for discs up to 128 GB: up against decreasing cost of hard drive storage and solid state storage, is a 128 GB disc going to change much?

Targeted primarily at commercial segments such as broadcasting, medical and document imaging enterprises with significant archiving needs, BDXL provides customers with triple layer 100GB RE (rewritable) and R (write-once) discs and quadruple layer 128GB R discs. Possible consumer applications include capture and playback of HD broadcast and satellite programming in markets where set-top recorders are prevalent.
