Large capacity DVDs are right around the corner. Both Panasonic and SONY have unveiled DVD recorders that support single-side, dual-layer Blu-ray Discs with a maximum capacity of 50 gigabytes. These new DVD recorders are expected to appear on shelves next month (first in in the Japense market though ). It is expected that in a few years these DVDs will be capable of holding over 100GB.
Can you imagine what this is going to mean for sample libraries?
