Blu-ray’s Promise Is Still Unfolding

Blu-ray’s Promise Is Still Unfolding I’m still betting on Blu-ray to be the archive medium for at least the near future. I totally agree with our engineer who says, “Nothing magnetic is archival.” Magnetism fades away all by itself over time, but an optical burn, like Blu-ray, can’t be bulk erased accidentally or just fade away with time. Now, they even offer more storage. Blu-rays will soon be on the shelves that hold 128 gigs total on 3 to 4 recordable layers. And there’s a re-writable version coming out that will hold 100 gigs. We’ve also seen Blu-ray players on sale for as little as $49.
