Moser Baer India has reportedly announced the development of its Gen-Next optical media format, the high-speed 8x Blu-Ray Disc (BDR).

The company, along with the recently acquired OM&T, former R&D subsidiary of Philips, has developed what it claims is the world’s first 8X BDR.

It is learnt that Moser Baer was also the first company in the world to ship the blue laser based HD DVD-R product to global OEM customers.

According to Ratul Puri, executive director of Moser Bear, this is a major achievement, and gives a significant advantage in the fast growing next generation optical format market.

With the latest innovation, consumers can record a 2-hour transmission equivalent of High Definition (HD) quality data, in less than 15 minutes. Typically, next generation formats have capacities ranging from 15 GB to 50 GB, and offer more than 5 to 10 times the data storage capacity of standard DVD media.

The new high speed Blu-Ray Disc format was presented at the recently-concluded 4th Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA) meeting in Fukuoka, Japan.

While the BDR market is generally witnessing developments in the 1x-4x recording speed discs, Moser Baer, with its innovative technology, has demonstrated new benchmarks in the 1x-8x speed disc category.

According to Moser Baer, the 8X BDR discs are compatible with Version 1.2 book specifications, and can be recorded on at low speed.

The company believes these next generation formats offer an ideal solution for reliable business backup, including medical and government imaging, photography, videography, as well as HD video recording.
