Recordable optic disc on Sony slate

TOKYO — Sony Corp. said Tuesday it has developed the technology to produce a CD-size high-capacity, recordable optic disc that has a single-side capacity to hold about five times the information of a recordable DVD-RAM.

This means it can hold about five hours of normal programming or 1.2 hours of programming for HDTV, Sony said.
