Pioneer has launched a new Blu-Ray drive capable of holding more than double the current maximum storage capacity.
The BDR-206 model is the first drive for use in PCs that makes use of the new recordable format that allows users to fit twice as much on a single disc.
“BDXL more than doubles the current maximum Blu-ray disc storage capacity and is ideal for various commercial uses such as video and broadcast archiving and storage, capturing and playback of high-definition programming, or data archiving needs,” the company said.
The drive works by using a quadruple layer disc by adding additional layers to traditional Blu-Ray discs.
