What is Blu Ray Technology

Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD) is the name of a next-generation optical disc format. Blue Ray technology was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video, as well as storing large amounts of data. Learn more at Blu Ray Player Buying Guide.

Blue Ray Technology vs. HD-DVD
Blue Ray technology, which has been in a long time battle to replace the previous Toshiba-backed high definition disk format, HD-DVD, has pretty much won as Wal Mart, Best Buy and Netflix no longer sell HD-DVD and only carry Blu Ray movies as well as players. Also you will not find HD-DVD on Blockbuster store shelves, but you will find Blu Ray movie disks. Also, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group, which accounts for 20% of DVD sales in the U.S., said it would ship all of its high-definition titles in Sony-backed Blu-ray by 2008 end."

How does Blue Ray technology work?

The Blu-ray technology uses a special blue-violet laser for reading and writing on the DVD disk, which uses a shorter wavelength (405 nm versus 650 on a regular DVD), thereby allowing way more data to be held on a a Blu-ray Disc than on the standard DVD. Using this new format, the Blu ray discs can store five times more data than current DVD's!

Both Blu-ray and HD players are capable of playing CD's and DVD's but HD players are not capable of playing Blu ray discs and visa versa. Most all Blu Ray players can play DVD, but no DVD players can play Blu Ray.

While Blu Ray has not replaced regular DVD, yet, Blu Ray is the standard for high definition video and many older movies have been converted to Blu Ray as well as most all new releases as Blu Ray is supported not only by the major Hollywood studios, but the smaller ones as well.

The Perks of Blu Ray and Blu Ray Players
Picture Quality
Superior high def resolution is a huge element of the reason why Blu Ray movies look excellent. This means you'll see a much more detailed picture: much more clearly defined features of people faces, colors of nature, close ups of wrinkles, facial imperfections, etc. The technological distinction is that Blu Ray's maximum resolution is 1920 x 1080 (1080p), while DVD is restricted to 720 x 480 (480p). Further than image resolution, Blu Ray additionally employs much better video-compression methods, producing much more contrast as well as better colors. It truly is the best quality of video you can get inb the market today, with a comparable, if note better than picture that you get at the movies, when the Blu Ray player is used in conjunction with an HDTV.

Audio Quality
Audio quality is also much better. New high-resolution soundtrack formats, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, are basically the same as the studio master, consequently you will be hearing sounds just as the director and audio editors designed.

Special Features
Blu Ray also has extra unique functions that DVD never did. The most basic innovation is the pop-up menu, allowing one to access the menu features as the movie keeps playing. Also, there is BD-Live, picture-in-picture video commentary, Internet connectivity, including models with built-in Wifi for streaming movies, videos, tv shows and all kinds of media from the Web.

BD-Live

On some movies you'll be able to download a variety of up-to-date content (for example, refreshed previews and exclusive special features). There are also a host of next generation possibilities, such as ringtone/wallpaper downloads, peer-to-peer interactions, live events and gaming activities. For example, on the Blu Ray version of Julie & Julia with BD-Live, you can bookmark Julia Child's actual recipes while you watch the movie. At the end of the film, you can e-mail yourself the recipes, pretty cool!
Bonus View
The Bonus View and lets you play back picture-in-picture content, which allows for a second video and audio stream.
