Philips Blu-ray Disc - Royal Philips Electronics

Spent a wet Saturday sorting four boxes of brochures and material collected at recent conferences like IBC and IFA Berlin. This site on Blu-Ray recording is evidently so new that the navigation bar on the left isn't working yet. But the info from Philips Optical storage is - and the 50 GB per disc is going to mark a new step in storage. It seems the BD discs will cost around 6 euros each when launched in March next year. Personally, I think the BluRay guys have enough supporters on board to make the new standard fly. There is, of course, a non-compatible rival...but I think the BluRay is the camp to bet on.
