    Sharp Modifies Blu-Ray Format To Create 100GB Disc

    There seems to be no end to the tweaking going on to both Blu-Ray and
    HD-DVD formats. Sharp has announced that they have created a 100GB
    dual-layer optical disc, based loosely on the Blu-Ray specification,
    but currently incompatible with Blu-Ray players or recorders.

    The new disc uses what Sharp calls a 'super-resolution functional
    film' - a technology that it had previously developed for single-layer
    discs, but that it has now refined to allow dual-layer use.

    The new disc is a step up from TDK's 100GB Blu-Ray disc which requires
    the user to flip the disc to access the second 50 GB of data.

    Just in case you were wondering what was the point of a Blu-Ray disc
    that wasn't compatible with Blu-Ray players, Sharp say that they will
    make the necessary changes before they bring it to market.
