Pioneer, Mitsubishi develop LTH BD-R discs

While the HD DVD camp is busy with its 51GB disc, the Blu-ray side has a new creature of its own to talk about. Co-developed by Pioneer and Mitsubishi, the LTH (Low to High) BD-R reportedly utilizes an "organic dye recording layer," and is said to be a recognized format within the Blu-ray Disc Recordable Format v1.2 standard.

this format war is over

BD is murdering HD DVD worldwide

BD beats HD DVD 3:1 in NA and 9:1 in EU and JAPAN

i feel bad for the BOTS who purchased the HD DVD addon --soon to become obsolete

I read the article, and I don't really understand what LTH means, if its important or not. Does it just mean lower expenses, or is it capable of something that the standard blu ray discs can't do now?

edit: and I do want the blu ray camp to win, I just have no idea what this has to do with anything.

From what I can see the capacity seems to be the same but with cheaper costs, which is good.

No official word on whether firmware updates will be enough to fix existing players, which is bad.

The latter negates the good news in the former if true (or at least negates it for early adopters). It'd be pretty bad if all the ps3's in existence suddenly couldn't play many bluray discs...

Thanks for clearing it up. Here's to hoping that firmware updates can allow current players to read them.

Maddens Raiders post this it doesn't have to mean anythng(make any sense) as long as the twist is some how bias.

Do you speak English? You sure as sh1t can't type it.

Don't take your emotional and social problems out on me.

Learn to deal with people...

You get agree's because you speak English when others don't lol...

Hello pot, meet kettle.

Arkham3870d ago (Edited 3870d ago )

I think the word you were looking for is "biased." Not "bias" (or "bais").

Remember: if you have a bias towards or against something, you're biased. You're not bias. If you're exhausted, you're not "tire" are you?

edit: @POG - If you're going to edit a mistake in your comment (bais -> bias) at least correct it (bais -> *biased*)

I'm sorry was my original post a personal slam outside of gaming?.

segasage3870d ago

this is one of those "who gives a sh%t articles" posted to get hits...

absolutely nothing to do with games...

whatever makes fanboys sleep at night..

ER1X3870d ago


Yes, it was a slam. You personally attacked Maddens. I dished it back it to you and you call me on it? Then you edit your posts around like the fake you are. Appreciate the ignore as well. Log on to one some more of your fake accounts and do some more damage with disagree's and ignores.

You're a POS fanboy, end of story. Everyone knows it.

I on the other hand, just call people out for being douchebags...regardless of what console they play. I'm an equal opportunity employer. ;-)

But until the prices of the blank media and recorders are brought down to a reasonable price, I don't think its really gonna matter if its some sort of amazing new dye for the discs, as most people will find it too expensive to be worthwhile

I like the fact that they are trying to bring down the costs of the BD-R's but if it means incompatibility problems with the current players then what really is the point?

TruthBTold3870d ago

Hopefully this will lower costs which benefits the consumer as well the manufacturer. But this needs to also be compatible with current and older Blu-Ray players, otherwise it will just screw a lot of current Blu-Ray owners.
