Sony and Panasonic have teamed up to develop a "next-generation standard for professional-use optical discs," saying that a 300GB flavor could be ready in two years or so. Though geared towards industries like cloud storage and digital cinema at first, the tech could eventually trickle down to consumers, too.
With the signing of the agreement, the two companies will begin discussing concrete plans toward a goal to begin local production of Acura brand vehicles at Guangqi Honda Automobile Co., Ltd. (GHAC) in 2016.
Nissan and Vesta (BMV: Vesta), an industrial real estate developer from Mexico, signed a definitive agreement for the development of a Douki Seisan Park (DSP) on site at the company's new Aguascalientes, Mexico manufacturing plant. The DSP would reside in close proximity to the automotive plant, allowing to intrinsically link automotive suppliers to production processes. This DSP will be developed within Nissan's new US$2-billion manufacturing complex where Phase 1 of automotive operations are scheduled to open by the close of 2013.
