sony_and_panasonic_announces_archival_disk_quikrpostSony and Panasonic have thrown a lifeline to the fast-fading optical disc, with the announcement of a new Archival Disc format that can store up to 1TB. It will have the same dimensions as current Blu-ray discs and will also be readable for at least 50 years.

Starting from next year, the companies will offer the Archival Disc, a high-capacity disc capable of storing 300GB of data. Over time, Sony and Panasonic plan to improve the offering, upping its storage to 500GB and then 1TB.

The new Archival Discs will have a lot more storage than existing options, giving you 300GB of storage. In contrast, single sided DVDs hold a maximum of 4.37GB, while movie DVDs use a standard called Dual Layer DVD, which can store up to 7.95GB. Double-Sided DVDs hold 8.74GB, and dual-layered double sided DVDs can hold up to 15.9GB.

According to PC World, Sony and Panasonic are pushing the optical discs for cloud service companies and archival services amid the explosion in online data and the companies plan on marketing the discs separately under their brands.
