Panasonic is the first to launch a BD-RE XL, namely a re-writable Blu-ray disc, the LM-BE100J. With a capacity of 100 GB, this triple layer media will be sold at 10000 yens, or around €100 VAT included. At this price, it’s clearly destined for specific pro usage.
Announced in June 2010, the Blu-ray Disc XL (BDXL) has capacities of 100 to 128 GB depending on whether it has three or four layers, with R (writable) and RE (rewritable) 100 GB versions and the 4-layer version being limited to R. Sharp was the first to launch a BD-R XL in July 2010. You must of course have a BD-RE XL writer to be able to use this media, something that is still pretty rare.
