THE NEXT GENERATION
BIGGEST BOOM IN THE
INDUSTRY

“BLU-RAY DISC”
BLU-RAY TECHONOLOGY
INTRODUCTION
 Developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association
(BDA) in 2006.
 Blu-ray is currently supported by about
200 of the world's leading consumer
electronics, personal computer, recording
media, video game and music companies.
(like Apple Computer, Inc., Dell Inc.,
Hewlett Packard Company, Hitachi, Ltd.,
LG Electronics Inc., Samsung Electronics
Co., Ltd., Sharp Corporation, Sony
Corporation, Sun Microsystems, Inc.)
WHAT IS BLU-RAY?
 A next-generation optical disc format.
 Offers more than 5 times the storage
capacity of traditional DVDs (25 GB on a
single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer
disc)
 A blue-violet laser used to read and write
data
 "Blue" (blue-violet laser) + "Ray" (optical
ray) = BLU-RAY
 Support for multi-layer discs, which should
allow the storage capacity to be increased
to 100GB-200GB (25GB per layer
Software standards
Codec
 Codec are compression schemes that reduce data
storage requirements; both lossy and lossless
compression techniques have been developed
and are being used. Depending on the
application, either can be used to greatly increase
the amount of audio or video storable on fixed
bit-capacity media.
 The BD-ROM specification mandates certain
codec compatibilities for both hardware decoders
(players) and the movie-software (content).
 For video, all players are required to support ISO
MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, and SMPTE VC-1. MPEG-2
video allows decoder backward compatibility for
DVDs.
 For audio, BD-ROM players are required to
support Dolby Digital Plus
CONTINUE…………

 Support for multi-layer


discs, which should allow
the storage capacity to be
increased to 100GB-200GB
(25GB per layer)
 Video-codes supported by
BLU-RAY
 (MPEG-2 MPEG-4 AVC
SMPTE VC-1 )
 AUDIO codes supported by
BLU-RAY (Linear PCM Dolby
Digital Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby True HD DTS Digital
Surround DTS-HD )
FEATURES
 Massive storage capacity
 High-Definition content
 Compatible with CD’s and DVD’s
 Robust content protection
 Rich interactivity capabilities with java
 Connectivity to internet
APPLICATIONS
 Stand-Alone Players and Play

(Sony)
 Recordable Stand-Alone Players.
 Portable Players.
 Universal Players (BD and HD-DVD)
 Camcorders- The combination of a camera
and a video recorder in one device. It
permits easy and rapid simultaneous
photography and recording.
ADVANTAGES OF BLU-RAY DISC
 Maximum picture resolution. Blu-ray
Disc delivers full 1080p* video resolution to
provide pristine picture quality.
 Largest capacity available anywhere
(25 GB single layer/50 GB dual layer).
Blu-ray Disc offers up to 5X the capacity of
today’s DVDs.
 Best audio possible. Blu-ray Disc
provides as many as 7.1 channels of
native, uncompressed surround sound for
crystal-clear audio entertainment.
 Enhanced interactivity. Enjoy such
capabilities as seamless menu navigation,
exciting, new bonus features, and
network/Internet connectivity.
 Broadest industry support from
brands you trust. More than 90% of
major Hollywood studios, virtually all
leading consumer electronics companies,
four of the top computer brands, the
world’s two largest music companies.
 Backward compatibility**. Blu-ray Disc
players enable you to continue to view and
enjoy your existing DVD libraries.
 The largest selection of high-def
playback devices. Blu-ray Disc is
supported by many of the leading
consumer electronics and computing
manufacturers. That means you can
maximize the use of your HDTV and your
home entertainment system with the
widest selection of high-def playback
devices—including players, recorders,
computers, aftermarket drives and the
PLAYSTATION® 3 game console.
 Disc robustness. Breakthroughs in hard-
coating technologies enable Blu-ray Disc
to offer the strongest resistance to
scratches and fingerprints.
DISADVANTAGES

 COST - Blu-ray disc player cost $1000,


which is far more than affordable. 
 MOVIE SUPPORT – There is very less
movie support till now for BLU-RAY disc.
NO’S TO BLU-RAYS

 NO cartridge
 no internet connection
 no down-convert analog
outputs
WILL BLU-RAY REPLACE
DVD?
 Expectation is YES
 Broad support from the major movie
studios Disney, Fox, Warner, Paramount,
Sony, Lions gate and MGM)
 Backward compatibility with DVDs.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BLU-
RAY AND DVDS ?
BENEFITS OF BLU-RAYS

 CAPACITY
 CONTENT
 HARDWARE
SUPPORT
BLU-RAYS IN ACTION
 BLU-rays, presently in action in USA and
CANADA, from the players like Samsung,
Panasonic, Sony, Philips and Pioneer
available in stores
 Also expect to see Blu-ray players from LG
and Sharp
 Blu-ray hardware and software should also
be available in many European countries
now.
