HD-DVD and DVD Hybrid

Toshiba’s new 30GB triple-layer HD-DVD disc includes DVD capabilities, marrying the power of Hi-Def with the market dominance of DVD.

It’s the latest in optical storage technology, and in the battle of HD-DVD vs. Blu-ray. Toshiba has recently developed, in conjunction with Memory Tech, a new triple-layer HD-DVD disc that is capable of either being 30GB HD-DVD dual-layer and 4.7GB DVD single-layer, or 15GB HD-DVD single-layer and 8.5GB DVD dual-layer. The new disk marks the first hybrid in the new strain of optical storage technology, and will be capable of playing both Hi-Def and regular DVD films on the same side of a disc. There’s little news beyond that for now, as all relevant press releases are available only in Japanese at the time, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
