    New dual-layer DVD+R technology

    Philips will demonstrate its new dual-layer DVD recordable technology at the DVD+RW Alliance booth at the CEATEC* JAPAN 2003 exhibition in Makuhari (Chiba, Japan) from October 7 to 11. Developed by Philips Research in cooperation with MKM (Mitsubishi Kagaku Media)/Verbatim, the technology virtually doubles data storage capacity on DVD recordable discs from 4.7 Gbyte to 8.5 Gbyte while remaining compatible with existing DVD Video players and DVD-ROM drives.

    Bit late to be honest, and on top of that, its going to be very expensive at a guess

    I recon it will. -R will come out with something equivilent half the price as per usual and people will use them in the US for DVD to DVD backups cause they are still player compatible. Youll probably even be able to flash your existing player with new firmware to do the disks.

    As i said - it wont be long till they bring out -R alternatives for a fraction of the cost.
