Singulus tests 100GB, 4K-ready Blu-ray discs

The Blu-ray Disc Association has teased that a 4K-friendly disc format is coming, but Singulus isn’t willing to wait to make some announcements of its own. The German company just finished production tests of a Blu-ray disc that squeezes 100GB into three layers, making it “ideal” for 4K movies. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, the company hasn’t said much more about the technology — we don’t know if the discs have the BDA’s support, whether they’re compatible with existing players, or when they enter mass production. We’ve reached out for more details; in the meantime, we’d advise saving up for the exotic TV you’ll need to watch 4K movies in any format.
