Pioneer unveils 16-layer 400GB optical discIf you think that the current Blu-ray disc is the best there is, think again. Pioneer has unveiled its 16-layer optical disc that can store a huge 400GB worth of data. The Pioneer disk is based on Blu-ray Disc (BD) with an added breakthrough in material of reflective layers.

The specs of the pick-up head of the disc are the same as those of blank BD discs. That means that the Pioneer discs can be read on BD players that are now on the market. Pioneer will release its read-only (ROM) 400GB discs from 2008 to 2010, while rewritable 400GB discs will make their appearance between 2010 to 2012 and the 1TB capacity disc should show up in 2013.

Pioneer does Blu-ray at 400GB across 16-layers
That’s 25GB per layer. The technique used by Pioneer should be backwards compatible with all of the existing Blu-ray gear since the specs and lenses needed for pickup are identical, but it’s not clear if players would need some kind of modified optical pick-up to see the data. The prototype they used is read-only but they just need time. Pioneer will give more details on July 13th.
