According to the statement, Panasonic’s BD-R XL (LM-BR100LW) conforms to the new BDXL format specification (BD-R v.3) that extends the storage capacity of writable Blu-ray Discs to 100GB, twice the 50 GB storage capacity of existing dual-layer (DL) discs. Thus it is capable of housing roughly 12 hours of terrestrial digital video (HD 17 Mbps) or 8 hours and 40 minutes of BS digital (HD 24 Mbps).
The disc can be written at up to 4x speed (144 Mbps) and features a hard coat to protect against scratches and fingerprints, as well as a wide printing area (23 mm to 117 mm) for labeling.
Be aware that new hardware and software is required to play, read or record all BDXL (BD-R XL, BD-RE XL) media.
