What is Blu Ray?
Blu Ray is a high-definition entertainment disc format that uses Blue Laser technology and extended data compression, as compared to the DVD format. Differing from DVDs that use Red Laser technology, the Blu Ray format is able to focus on its disc surface with greater precision and detail. Single-layer Blu Ray discs can hold 25gb of data (dual-layer holds 50gb) in home-recording, and boasts a data transfer rate of 36-48 Mbps, on average.
First introduced in 2008 in competition with HD-DVDs, Blu Ray stands today as one of the most intricate disc formats, letting viewers experience the next generation of sound and audio quality in the home theater setting. These discs are viewed with Blu Ray Players.
