Pioneer 16-Layer Blu-ray Disc Features 400GB
Has identical lens specifications as existing BD discs and may be compatible with existing players.

Pioneer is developing a 16-layer Blu-ray disc that has a capacity of 400GB, claiming to be the first of its kind.

The discs feature 25GB per layer, which is the same as a Blu-ray disc. This multilayer technology will also be applicable to multilayer recordable discs.

The lens specifications are the same as existing BD discs, making it possible to be compatible with existing Blu-ray players.

Pioneer uses a technique that reduces crosstalk from adjacent layers. The result is a 16-layer optical disc that plays high-quality signals from every layer.

Pioneer will release more details on July 13 in Hawaii at the International Symposium on Optical Memory and Optical Data Storage.
