Sony Launches First Blu-ray Disc Media in New Zealand
Sony Electronics New Zealand is introducing the first single-layer 25GB Blu-ray Disc media that will hit the stores in June 2006 and also set to launch a dual-layer 50GB Blu-ray Disk media in the second half of the year.

Each Blu-ray Disc media offers an enormous storage capacity for customers with a large memory appetite for multiple purposes including storing of video clips, music and for data back-up purpose.

Equivalent to 5 DVDs' storage memory capacities, the single layer 25GB Blu-ray Disc media minimises storage space and increase convenience in organising large files in 1 storage media. Currently, users can playback the Blu-ray Disc media with the latest VAIO AR series equipped with an internal Blu-ray Disc media drive, to be launched in the same month.

The Blu-ray Disc media offers a 2x high speed equivalent to a data transfer rate of 72 Mbps (9MB/second). For the single layer 25GB Blu-ray Disc media, it can store approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes of video at a bit rate of 24Mbps or 10 hours and 30 minutes at 5Mbps.

These discs will be avalable available in BD-R (write-once) and BD-RE (rewritable) formats.
