VMD is the acronym for "Versatile MultiLayer Disc." It is a next generation optical disc designed for High Definition content: motion pictures, video on demand, sports entertainment, and all video content and data.
VMD is precisely the same size and thickness as DVD, however, while DVD technology is limited to a maximum of two data layers on a disc.
VMD based on Red Laser technology assures a long and vibrant life ahead for the Red Laser infrastructure as VMD enables an increase in the current standard disc from 8.5GB to a capacity of 100GB and higher.

 Optical disc Summary
Optical discs are the state of the art in computer memory and storage, using lasers to record and retrieve information.
However, optical discs are far superior to their magnetic counterparts because they hold more data and, because the laser cannot damage the disc, they are more durable.
Smooth areas of the disc untouched by the laser, called land, are analogous to zeroes.

 VMD | High-Def Digest
VMD provides a high def image using Red-ray technology, which compresses more digital information onto a disc than the standard DVD, but less than an HD or Blu-ray disc.
The company has developed the Versatile Multi-Layer Disc (VMD), a multi-layer disc technology that promises equal or greater storage capacity to existing HD-DVD and Blu-Ray high-def formats, and cheaper player and disc costs.
Even if VMD is successful overseas, it faces an uphill struggle here in the U.S, where it has absolutely zero manufacturer and studio support.

The Blu-ray Disc is a next-generation optical disc format that enables recording, rewriting, and playback of high-defintion video as well as storage of high-density data.
The name for the disc was taken from the underlying technology that was used to develop the format; the technology uses a blue-violet laser to read and write data.
As a way to future-proof the Blu-ray disc, the format also includes support for multi-layer discs which allows storage capacity to be increased up to 100GB-200GB by simply adding more layers to the discs.

 VMD to hit US with '100 titles' | Reg Hardware
Versatile Multilayer Disc (VMD), one of the lesser-known formats jostling to become the successor to DVD, will launch in the US later this year with the release of more than 100 titles, the company behind the technology pledged today.
VMD's technical propostion may be impressive - a 50GB disc containing ten layers each capable of holding 5GB of data to be read using red laser technology - but without a very good content proposition, the format will have a tough time establishing itself in the States, let alone delivering solid market success.
It may be able to pitch VMD as a cheaper HD alternative but, again, cost doesn't matter a hill of beans if the content isn't there.

 Technology Forecasts | High-Def Digest
A 200GB Blu-ray disc would be an eight-fold increase in storage capacity over the current industry standard BD-25 single-layer disc, which maxes out at 25GB.
It would also be four times that of the upcoming BD-50 dual-layer, 50GB disc variant, the recordable version of which TDK announced they would begin shipping to retailers tomorrow.
Still, the idea of a Blu-ray disc with such massive storage potential is undeniably intriguing.

VMD drives use the same red lasers that power traditional CD and DVD drives, but with a difference: many more layers are embedded into the disc, dramatically increasing its storage capacity.
New Medium Enterprises demonstrated a prototype VMD drive at the show, and claimed that they plan to launch the format in the third quarter of this year.
However, with VMDs requiring new drives and new media, and with the technology still largely untested, it may be a tougher sell.

 New disc format - VMD/FMD (100GB - 1 TB in a few years) - Rev should use it - All Games
The VMD (Versatile Multilayer Disc) and FMD (Fluorescent Multilayer Disc) are media storage units which allow data to be stored in multiple layers on a CD (up to 20 right now, and potentially up to 100 within a few years).
Since each layer of a DVD data density format disc can store 4.7GB of data, 20 layers means approximately 95GB of storage on a single disc, with an access speed of 50-60ms and a data transfer rate of approximately 1 Gigabit per second.
I think it's safe to say that a multilayer disc works similarly, but with much more layers, and they can be easily labelled, or not only VMD/FMD game discs, but all multilayer discs in world would look the same.

If players need a Bios update (iow a new DVD player because the average person IS NOT going to update their bios with a DVD disc) then we might as well go to Sony's BluRay as we have 30gig or more (upto 60gig in theory).
