Blu-ray Disc

Blu-ray Disc is the next-generation format for 1080p high definition content. To enjoy the best picture in high definition for your HDTV, Blu-ray Disc offers the best picture and sound. Here are some of the format’s key benefits:

Superior Image Quality: Blu-ray Disc delivers video at six times the picture resolution and supports higher bit rates than standard definition media, offering a more detailed, crisp picture than standard DVDs.

Sophisticated Surround Sound: Blu-ray Disc provides up to 7.1 channels of lossless high definition audio for a more immersive listening experience.

More Entertainment Content: High definition packaged media boasts a dramatically higher capacity than DVD, offering more storage for high definition movies, TV shows, music concerts and other programming, along with additional space for other exciting value-added features.

Ultimate Versatility for Movies, Music, Games and Storage: The platform goes far beyond the traditional home entertainment experience. With Blu-ray Disc, users can watch movies, record personal content and play video games with the added clarity of high definition.

High Capacity Recordability: Blu-ray Disc allows for archiving high definition home movies and storing large quantities of PC data, in both write-once and rewritable formats.

Advanced Interactivity: This format can also support high-speed Internet access to create a new level of interactive entertainment including exclusive web-based programming, links to related sites, games and bonus content.

Connectivity for the Broadband Home: Many Blu-ray Disc players, PCs and game consoles offer secure network connectivity for added convenience and enjoyment.

BD-Live: For the most immersive experience possible, BD-Live players combine the features available in other Blu-ray Disc players – breathtaking video and audio playback, BD-J powered interactive features, and the picture-in-picture (PiP) and secondary audio mixing of BonusView players – with an Internet connection that serves as a gateway to additional content and web-enabled features.

Backward Compatibility: Many Blu-ray Disc players offer backward compatibility with a variety of optical discs including DVDs, CDs and other types of media.
