Blu Ray

 

 

The big question we get these days in home theater is Should I do Blu-ray instead of DVD?

The short answer is YES. Blu-ray has matured to a great extent in a short period of time and now provides picture and sound quality that is second-to-none!

 

Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc is the name of the dominant next-generation optical disc format. The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc.

 

 

 

 
 


The name Blu-ray is derived from the underlying technology, which utilizes a blue-violet laser to read and write data. The name is a combination of “Blue” (blue-violet laser) and “Ray” (optical ray).

The Blu-ray Disc format was developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers, with more than 180 member companies from all over the world.

 

 
 

The advantage of Blu-ray is its ability to play high definition video up to 1080p in resolution.  1080p resolution offers up to 5 times the detail as standard DVD at 480p. At present there are hundreds of Blu-ray discs available with hundreds more on the way.
