Still not satisfied with the 25GB single layer blu-ray disc and finding
not enough ? Well it seems that Sony and Panasonic’s R&D are
working on ways to create bigger sized discs.

With the new standard, we should expect see the new blu-ray disc to be able to hold 33.4GB of data as compared to the existing 25GB single layer blu-ray, thanks to a new method of evaluating Blu-ray Disc media quality even at the higher capacity.

Existing blu-ray optics will still work with the standard although not much could be said with the current blu-ray devices, prolly a firmware fix is in need.

No tentative date, lets hope the new standard will be better without affecting a major shift of current devices
