Germany’s Singulus Technologies completes tests of 100GB Blu-ray discs

In an announcement which underscores that a physical media standard for next-generation 4K video is now imminent, Germany-based optical disc replication equipment manufacturer Singulus Technologies has revealed that it has completed production tests of a 4K Blu-ray disc.

According to the details shared by Singulus Technologies, company's production tests of a 4K Blu-ray disc have been completed recently. The tests pertained to a Blu-ray disc which, as per the company's claims, can carry a whopping 100GB of storage space into three layers.

The details announced by Singulus Technologies unveiled the company's new machine - dubbed the Bluline III - which boasts the capability of producing triple-layer Blu-ray discs which have the capacity to store up to 100GB.

Singulus Technologies' announcement of Bluline III machines, capable of delivering higher-capacity pressed discs, comes ahead of any official announcement from the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) - the industry coalition which is presently discussing a new standard for 4K Blu-ray in its committees.

Nonetheless, HDTVTest. uk has noted that the new Singulus machines clearly hint that an official 4K Blu-ray format is on the cards in the near future.

Meanwhile, pointing out that the existing Blu-ray disc standard used by most home video releases supports up to only 50GB of storage capacity, a statement released by Singulus Technologies said: "The triple-layer Blu-ray discs with 100GB storage capacity is the preferred playback medium for the new 4K technology."
