It's funny that Wikipedia doesn't have an article on archival disks. Maybe someone should start one?

Ah, that explains it. I, being the user of American English that I am, was spelling disk with a 'k', not a 'c'.

I'm fairly convinced that this type of media may have had it's day. With everything up on the cloud these days you can access whatever you want without needing physical media. Yes, streaming HVD level resolution is going to be difficult with current broadband technology but I would think that even fibre optic broadband could overcome this. I refused to go to Blu-ray, and I doubt I will go to any other media type when I can simply download or stream what I want...

In case of an internet outage due to problems at isp, or some other more severe eventuality,  it is good to have plenty of media to go around.   Also many corporations and even government institutions have time and again failed to keep proper backups, without plenty of people having spare backups a lot of this content could disappear for good.

Because some of us aren't lucky and being ripped off by internet companies. Having grown up in Canada, the internet had a usage cap with fees if you went over it (or you had to pay an arm and a leg to get no limit). And living in the UK, until recently our internet speed was shockingly slow, because we lived in the countryside. We have a few subscriptions now to on-demand streaming, would have been impossible before. We still buy DVDs though since my husband's a bit of a hoarder and loves to have a physical copy.

 

And bigger discs are good for gamers. ^_^

At some point the image will just be beamed into our brains directly.  So the resolution will basically look like reality but better because the eye won't be a limiting factor in the quality of the image.

We may need to change the article and thread title to reflect the name Ultra HD Blu-ray.
