Sony Ramps Up Production of 50GB Blu-ray Disc
Sony said Monday that it now had six production lines in operation producing the company's 50GB Blu-ray disc. Production will be ramped up to 60,000 discs per day, the company said. In addition to the 50GB production lines, the company also has nine that produce the 25GB version of the disc. Over three million discs have been shipped out since production began in May.
"We know that our customers are looking for the finest audio and video experience possible from Blu-ray Disc," Sony Pictures executive vice president Don Eklund said. "BD50 is an essential part of our strategy to expand offerings of uncompromised audio, video and added value to consumers both domestically and internationally."
