Dual-Layer DVDs Coming Soon
Sony Electronics plans to introduce dual-layer DVD burners that will effectively double the amount of data that can be stored on a single disk.Dual-layer DVD burners from Sony Electronics, which effectively double the amount of data that can be stored on a single disk, will hit the market near the end of next month. Currently, consumer- and business-class DVD burners can store 4.7GB of data on a single disk, but the introduction of dual-layer technology will raise the maximum single-disk capacity to 8.5GB.
With the higher data capacities, I predict well see dual-layer DVD recorders used more for backing up small servers, workstations and laptops.
