Megapixel War Enters New Era

DVDScientists have developed a new technique that will allow one DVD to store an astonishing 10.6 years of high definition video. The breakthrough will increase the storage capacity of a DVD from just 4.7 gigabytes to 1000 terabytes… and in a related development scientists have also announced the 1000 megapixel image sensor to consume this storage, preserving even more useless pixels for posterity. This development simultaneously marked the end of the Megapixel War and the start of the Gigapixel War, with all combatants promising more gigapixels in the future.

For the complete story behind this new technology see More data storage? Here’s how to fit 1,000 terabytes on a DVD.
