PH-DVD format claims to bump discs up to 100GB

Just when you thought the format wars couldn't get any stranger -- and just a day after we brought you the pride of Ukraine, VCDHD -- here comes another next-gen optical disc "standard," from Dr. Oron Zachar of Polarizonics Corp. (Yes, you read that right, and, no, this isn't the same character played by Peter Sellers in a 60s sci-fi flick). The good doctor claims that by "exploiting the polarization element contained in all current DVD formats," he can triple the capacity of most other optical disc formats, including DVDs, HD DVD, and Blu-ray discs using existing production equipment. We're not sure if any of this actually works, but Polarizonics is attracting at least some investment interest, so it could be worth keeping an eye on -- if only to find out what Polarizonics actually means.

My guess is that he is theorizing that different polarizing filters (angles) will see the burns (prints) differently so that a disc printed with different optical filters can have a lot of different data sets burned (printed) to the disc. The reader would have to be tuned to the optical characteristics of the different sets of data. :)

How does that sound from someone who knows nothing about polarizing filters? :huh::D (or for that matter anything about discs and disc characteristics)

 

Did you catch the blurb about allowing for better means of prevention of piracy? I'm surprised that Sony has not yet become involved or is Brainspark supported by Sony.
