story imageLooks like Sony and Panasonic are teaming up again for the new Archival Disc format. The new disk format will premier at 300 GB with plans to increase to 1 TB using signal processing advancements. Double sided, 3 layers each side, and 405 nm optical wavelength - maybe these new 4K TVs will finally have some 4K source media.

I was going to say, is this really much of an advance over Blu-Ray? Which I've long suspected is the last gasp of optical storage. I'm really not sure what the use case for "archival optical disks" is these days.
