DVD+RW Alliance announces new spec

— 3:48 PM on August 8, 2002

The DVD+RW camp announced a new 4X DVD+R specification today that can burn a full capacity DVD+R disc in just 15 minutes. C|Net has the scoop, which includes this particularly interesting tidbit:

The DVD+RW Alliance also announced on Thursday 8-centimeter DVD+RW discs to be used in mobile devices, such as digital video cameras. The 8-centimeter discs can store up to 1.46GB of data compared with the 4.7GB capacity of 12-centimeter discs.
I can only hope someone makes a really tiny personal audio player that accepts these 8-centimeter discs. Now that would be sweet.
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
