Will Blu-ray discs require a cartridge?

No, the development of new low cost hard-coating technologies has made the cartridge obsolete. Blu-ray will instead rely on hard-coating for protection, which when applied will make the discs even more resistant to scratches and fingerprints than today’s DVDs, while still preserving the same look and feel. Blu-ray also adopts a new error correction system which is more robust and efficient than the one used for DVDs.

The adoption of hard-coating will also allow manufacturers to downsize players/drives and lower their overall media production costs.

No, the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) and TDK have successfully developed a new hard-coating technology dubbed “Durabis” that makes the discs even more resistant to scratches and fingerprints than existing DVDs, without requiring a cartridge to protect the discs. This development will enable manufacturers to downsize PC drives and lower their overall media production costs. http://www.blu-ray.
