Sony follows TDK to offer Blu-ray media

Sony Electronics, Inc. yesterday announced the launch of its 25GB single layer Blu-ray media with its AccuCORE technology.

Sony is now the second of two companies offering Blu-ray media in the write-once form with TDK being the first. Sony Electronics' version of the single layer Blu-ray media will feature the following:
  • Scratch Guard - hard coating that resists scratches, dust and static;
  • Archival Reliability - special material design that prevents data and image corruption and deterioration to ensure quality playback;
  • Stable Writing - a uniform and precise cover layer that reduces fluctuation as the disc spins
  • Temperature Durability - a high-precision disc structure helps prevent warping during severe changes in temperature and humidity.
We're sure most higher quality Blu-ray media will have similar technologies to ensure reliability as Sony's version. The media is rated at 2X and will provide data transfer rates of up to 72Mb/sec. Pricing information is similar to TDK's scheme at $20 and $25 for the single layer Blu-ray write-once and rewritable media respectively.

Sony also plans to offer 50GB dual layer Blu-ray media in June of this year with retail prices of $48 and $60 for write-once and rewritable versions.
