Each layer can store 25 GB of data versus the current BD media which has half the capacity and only two layers. At a speed of 12x, eight hours of HD video could be burned in roughly 10 minutes.
The timeframe for the delivering of this laser is likely not to be anytime soon. The creation of this laser does allow other manufacturers to develop media and other materials to be compatible with the higher speed. Expect a delay of about two years for the release of higher speed recorders.
Currently, Blu-ray is supporting writes of up to 6x.
