While 25GB on a disc a few years back seemed like a lot of data, we might be able to get 33.4GB per DVD layer in the near future. Panasonic and Sony have revealed that a technology, i-MLSE (Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimation) that can provide a third more space on a Blu-ray disc than existing technology. The benefit of this development is that this is dependent on software, so you won’t need any additional lasers or settings to record the extra capacity. Sony seems rather hopeful that i-MLSE will become popular and will most likely be proposing it to the Blu-ray Disc Association. Will we all be sporting higher capacity Blu-ray discs in the future? It certainly seems possible, doesn’t it?
