Archival Discs

Sony and Panasonic Archival Disc Technology is Coming

In a joint effort to develop a new standard for optical discs, Sony and Panasonic have unveiled the new “Archival Disc” format, with planned storage capacities up to 1TB per disc. Citing their ability to handle dust, water, and changes in temperature and humidity better than hard drives, Sony and Panasonic clearly see optical discs as the way forward for long-term data storage. The development of large-capacity optical media may also see an impact in the consumer video realm, keeping the format alive as we slowly transition to a 4K environment.
