Could Blu-Ray Be The Next Big Wave In Home Entertainment?

Jul 26, 2008
Many people are curious as to whether this new technology is worth their hard-earned money. They are looking to see what the true differences are between Blu-ray and standard DVD's. People want to know what else Blu-Ray offers than just higher definition and clarity.

So what is this whole Blu-ray about, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of a next-generation optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson).

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.

Blu-ray technology is here to stay. People have been very impressed with this new product and what it offers. They are in love with the high quality and will tell you they wouldn't choose a regular DVD over it.

This technology with the enhance HD features developing everyday will bring the ultimate home theater experience. This type of technology is no doubt the wave of the future and many accepting this technology into their homes.

There is one complaint about this new Blu-ray technology though. There is not a large enough movie collection out in Blu-ray yet. New releases come out in this way but the older movies that are already out aren't available. What do you do when you want to see an older movie but it's not in Blu-ray?

Go out and see what this Blu-ray technology is all about if this interests you. There is a likely chance you will find it amazing. There are so many options like even writing your own materials onto blank Blu-ray discs. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.

In fact, seven of the eight major movie studios (Disney, Fox, Warner, Paramount, Sony, Lionsgate and MGM) have released movies in the Blu-ray format and six of them (Disney, Fox, Sony, Warner, Lionsgate and MGM) are releasing their movies exclusively in the Blu-ray format.

As you can see a lot of big players in the industry are making the transition. This is becoming a fast transition so this type of technology is never to early to start in one's life.
